No More Dinner Invitations To the White House for Turkey

Good Day World!

It wasn’t that long ago when we thought Turkey was a friendly country. We even thought they liked us. Our politicians held the little country up as a role model for the Middle East. 

But to the surprise of the United States, they think we’re part of a conspiracy to overthrow their government. They’ve been talking trash more often recently so President Obama has taken them off the guest list in Washington, DC.

Via The Christian Science Monitor:

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) handled antigovernment protests last spring and their resorting to anti-Western conspiracy theories, blaming everyone from business newspapers and bankers to Jews and Americans.”

I have to admit I’ve not been following our government’s relations with Turkey that closely and it got me to wondering what else I might not know about the country. So I took the following test:

Test your knowledge about the history and politics of Turkey

How did you do? Hopefully, better than I did!

Time for me to walk on down the road…
