Turkey Violates EU Airspace
Turkey has recently been stepping up its violations of EU airspace, and is now extending them to populated areas. This is something that Turkey does routinely. Apparently, EU airspace is violated by Turkish military aircraft about 1,500 times on average each year, so about 5 times per day. Is it not absolutely astonishing that we are seriously considering extending EU membership to a country that conducts itself like a potential adversary, routinely making threatening gestures to us?
