    After sending in its ground troops for many years [immigrants] Turkey is ready.

    Synopsis: According to today’s Sunday Express, a British paper, a Turkish newspaper closely aligned to the government of President Recep Erdogan recently proclaimed in a bold headline: “Turkey can occupy Europe within 3 days”.
    The pronouncement is part of Turkey’s 12-year fight to become a member of the European Union. Turkey has used the migrant invasion as a political bargaining chip to force the EU government in Brussels to speed up their entry into EU membership.
    The Turkish paper backs up their claim based on the military readiness work of political scientist George Friedman, founder of Stratfor.
    Turkey has a very large, well-equipped standing army. As the Turkish paper put it:
    “Friedman said the Turks could defeat Germany in one afternoon and France in one hour.”
    “Germany has abandoned by its citizens. If we start in the morning, we can have our evening prayer in Bellevue Castle.” – the official residence of the president of Germany.
    Why?
    Two years ago, a survey was conducted asking how likely citizens were to fight for their country. It found that only 18% of Germans would fight for Germany, only 29% of the French would, and only 27% of the British would defend their nation.

    If they let them into the EU that means they do not need passports to get the rest of their army into Europe.

    Yes - it was one of the reasons 'we' over here wanted 'out'
    It was another step too many

    Sabre-rattling gibberish.
    Turkey would not last half a day without direct and very substantial support from Russia.
    The size of an Army means nothing in actual war.
    G.B. and Europe have fought Turkey before and they totally lack discipline as an military force.
    The Turkish army is more of a military farce, and they will never be part of the E.U.

    The tactically minded disciplined soldier wins the war, not mindless rhetoric.
