What is your opinion on the Turkish military? Posted on March 15, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Is it good? They seem to be kicking ass in Syria and our Bayraktar drones are really good in Ukraine.
That's all they're good at
Really good once but suffered from a lot of islamist infiltration. Still good but not as great as back in the day, but apparently they are healing.
Child molesters killing goat fuckers, hard to chose
I will liberate Constantinople
the only reason as to why they are even talked about is because they have a land border with a country in which force projection measured in 10s of km is relevant
the fact that people unironically put them above France, UK or even Poland, in terms of military capabilities, is hilarious to me.
“Largest army in NATO after the US!!” yeah, being able to throw bodies into a meat grinder has clearly been proven to be the most critical factor over the past 12 months.
I'd imagine theyre going to have to ramp it up as russian and iranian interests turn more towards the black sea and caucus
Turkey and Russia are hosting joint military patrols in Syria shits crazy
I can't imagine that thats going to last long. Not until a change of administration at least
I started the thread as kind of a joke but seriously, I hope Erdogan loses reelection. The main opposition party is polling way ahead which is good.
Erdogan has made Turkey look bad on the world stage; it’s embarrassing. Recently, Turkey had announced that there will be “expanded” military patrols with Russia. I don’t understand why.
whos the main opposition nowadays?
Also yeah he's made turkish foreign policy seem very strange from the outside view. Being a NATO country but also going against NATO members and policy. Seems like he wants to pursue turkish interests and expansion more than anything else. I suppose turkey hasn't really had much of a "role" to play in nato since the 60's but then again most nato countries don't lol
Main opposition is CHP. They’ve banded together with a few other parties to make sure Erdogan loses the election this year.
Yes, Turkey is pursuing its own interests. You know how India plays both sides and then acts all smug? It’s like that but with a NATO member
>Being a NATO country but also going against NATO members and policy.
looks like supporting marxist anarchist commies to expand in syria was bad idea and alienated turkey.
>The main opposition party is polling way ahead which is good.
Until he declares them a terrorist organization and arrests anyone polling above 5% for "threatening national stability".
Only 20% of Turkish population is anything resembling what a person in a developed cunt might consider human. The rest 80% are exactly like peasant-slave mentality vatniks who will accept and spread living in shit while being very nationalistic of it. Also on top of that they have that middle eastern islamic retard motivation. They will happily throw themselves to somewhere like Bakhmut in human waves without seeing any problem. Dying for your country mentality is very popular. Overall, take Russia tier, but instead of having fucktons of Soviet stuff they have less of old Western-like stuff.
Kek this. I'm sure he'll find some way to hold power. People get hopeful every election only to get blackpilled afterwards again and again. Reality is Erdoğan, corruption, authoritarianism; all these are totally normal, democratic choices for the majority of Turkish population. It's their destiny to be a shithole. The people who don't like it are the 20% because they're stuck in the wrong country they don't belong to so they try to cope.
wrong thread shill
>They will happily throw themselves to somewhere like Bakhmut in human waves without seeing any problem.
this very greek tier post. turks are whinny bitches who whine about small things. we are not stoic as russians. also wagner is basically penal battalion so its not even good comparison.
Israel's heading that way too.
Maybe we'll finally see peace in the middle east as the ratbag dictators all join in a league of autocratic oil-pumpers quietly deleting opponents for one another.
Turkeys military is really good. It’s a regional power at the least. Could easily conquer Syria for that sweet oil if they wanted.
I’m not a fan of a NATO country trying to play both sides when it comes to Russia. Makes me doubt their commitment to NATO and containing Russian expansion. I mostly worry about Turkey going full retard and attacking the Greeks which will splinter NATO.
The duality of man
Turkish military is shit. Ranks are extremely lacking in education. Only reason they look decent is because they usually fight against even shitter groups.
Best arab army.
whatever it means.
Turks aren't Arabic.
no but they look indian paki tho
Turks aren't racially homogenous because they aren't native to the place they live now and absorbed various regional ethnicities into themselves. The result is that you have Turks who are like you describe and you also have Turks who are "whiter than you, ahmed" unironically.
i know there are some blue eyed and blond turks, but the majority of turks looks pakistani/indian
The majority of them in my experience look Greek or Georgian/Armenian since that's usually their racial background.
the one one in your picture i would assume is greek by appearance is the old dude in the center
maybe the 2nd from the left too (he ugly, tho)
the rest look like immigrants to me
based Greekbro! Fuck the turkroaches, and fuck the "Macedonians" who are too pussified to admit they're Greek.
>Fuck the turkroaches
indeed. i would spare the ones with lots of greek genetics (the white looking ones, that is) and put them in reeducation camps
the rest, picrel
>fuck the "Macedonians" who are too pussified to admit they're Greek.
"Macedonians" from FYROM are not greek
normally, i don't have much of an issue with slavs
but fuck these particular ones for trying to steal greek history
however, some consideration must be given them, since former yugoslavia has always been a prime source of cheap prostitutes
greek chads like me have busted many a nut thanks to "Macedonian" women
its enough for me to not want to genocide them
the sentence has been commuted to reeducation camps for them too.
bro greeks look paki and indian too, not everyone who says turks look like their indian are greeks or armenians
bunch of genocidal losers who got btfo by everyone
Also it's peak irony that PrepHolefags shill for warcriminals while pretending they're the good guys lmfao
On the table is that really a box of lotion paper towels and vodka
Get shit on all the time by retards here despite consistently performing well in real combat for decades in their war against Greece in the 1920's, against internal ethnic rebellions in the 1930's, against the Greeks and Cypriots in the 1970's, and against the Syrians in the 2020's, not to mention their aid to the Azeris against Armenia.
People will just spam pics of the same handful of destroyed tanks in Syria as evidence that they're like totally shit as though they didn't completely neuter the Kurds in the Syria and take over a significant chunk of the country with completely negligible casualties.
Best for the region but that isnt a hard competition to win.
imagine the smell
>They seem to be kicking ass in Syria
Didn't they lose a bunch of MBTs?
Do you think Erdogan is a neo-ottomanist?
lolno, he's a thief and a crook flailing wildly, pulling any and all levers he sees that'll give him more years in office.
When he lets go he has about a week to cash all assets, collect all favours and get to a friendly gulf nation or he'll be in a cell untill he's so old and infirm he has to be wheeled around wearing a diaper and a drool-bib.
Second strongest nato army after murica
