Turkey is waging a brutal war against its own citizens by not only targeting Kurds, but also Armenians, Alewites and most of the non-Sunnis minorities. Suppression of oppositional groups, trade unions, journalists and academics is going on. The government tolerates Islamist terrorists. Turkey is of geostrategic importance for EU and NATO, the largest buyer of German weapons, European bridgehead in the Middle East, the 2nd largest NATO army, part of Nabucco pipeline project and involved in the encirclement of Russia. We will concentrate the summary of risks, contradictions and expected escalation.
