"@Gorkay kardes, as you can see from the number of Turkish members responses to this thread (only two of us) nobody gives a ****. As I said if it's less than 8, it's irrelevant, if more than 8 "bicak kemige dayandi" edebiyati. "
Man I do believe most people are only interested in their own pocket. It is in their human nature. Sehits, pride, honour, strong foreign policy etc are all BS for most people.
There is so many wrong things with Turkey as we know, insane number of jailed activists, journalists, trade unionists, MP's etc. There is almost no independent judiciary.
But most people dont give a damn. Even anti-akp people don't really care that much. Unless they are directly effected, people dont care. What does a villager from Kayseri or Yozgat understand about democracy, human rights? What does a poor man from Istanbul's suburbs care if a few more soldiers died; they went to heaven and "vatan sagolsun". Once we understand that then you can see how AKP gets 50%, or lack of action from society.
I have to admit there are times I struggle to care too. It is easier not to care.
There are great people in this forum as well as shameless AKP fanboys, but can't blame anyone to be honest.
Seriously Turkish army has been made a joke, for me it is more of a pity for young guys my age that are being killed.
