    'Talking Turkey: Rick Perry’s Latest ‘Oops’ Moment?

    Foreign policy hasn’t been kind to Republican presidential hopefuls this year, from Herman Cain’s “Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan” to Newt Gingrich’s remark that Palestinians are an “invented people” to Rep. Ron Paul’s, well, entire platform.

    But Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s assertion Monday night in the GOP debate in South Carolina that Turkey, a U.S. NATO ally, is governed by “Islamic terrorists,” pushes the bar even lower.

    Fox News’ Bret Baier asked Gov. Perry if Turkey still belongs in NATO, given Ankara’s crackdowns on press freedom, acceptance of Hamas, and frosty relations with Israel.

    “Well, obviously, when you have a country that is being ruled by what many would perceive to be Islamic terrorists,” Gov. Perry answered, “then yes, not only is it time for us to have a conversation about whether or not they belong to be in NATO, but it’s time for the United States, when we look at their foreign aid, to go to zero with it...”'

    I completely disagree with you skeeter. Perry would make an excellent President and Commander in Chief. He's not gaining enough traction to find himself in position to make the long run to the White House, however.

    Turkey goes along with what they perceive the strength of the US to be. They used to be a "secular" Muslim country during the cold war when the US was perceived as having the upper hand and more importantly had more money than the Soviets to throw around to fund their "cause". Now, the US is perceived as weak and Turkey is shifting its ideology to garner support (and cash) from our enemies. Since the rest of the world's main economies tacitly approve of Muslim theocracies, so goes Turkey with it's hand open.
