Turkish Min: EU Most Hypocritical Union of All Time
Days after the Nobel Peace Prize this year went to the European Union, Turkey's economy minister has slammed the decision, calling the bloc "the most hypocritical union of all time".
"EU is the most hypocritical union of all time and the most hypocritical association in the world. And this hypocrite has had Turkey wait at its door for 50 years," Turkish Minister of Economy Zafer Caglayan fumed, speaking at the Elita Oil Factory's opening ceremony in the southern province of Adana.
"The Nobel Peace winner puts a quota on Turkish products and trucks and applies a visa regime to Turkish businessmen even though Turkey has signed the Customs Union deal with the union," Caglayan stressed.
"So, I refuse to recognize EU's Nobel Peace Prize as this union commits crimes against humanity and creates unfair competition in trade. If you give EU the prize for hypocrisy, then we will accept it."
Praise, gratitude and shock have followed the news that the Nobel Peace Prize this year goes to the European Union.
Critics have been quick to point out that the award is playing down the impact of the raging financial crisis, as well as the role of NATO for preserving the peace in Europe.
The last organization to be given the award outright was Medecins Sans Frontieres, which won in 1999.

Again? Saturday, nice day, nice mood, nice glass of gin, and: " For the last 500 years Europe has been dominated by the London-Paris-Berlin triangle and everything in between. Thats where the money and power is concentrated, like it or not"...... Yeah, everybody likes
it, sure. The only hesitation or, may be better,embarassement arises
in connection with "has been dominated by"......Where was that very
"domination" when Russia stopped the slaughter of Bulgarians (1878)?
The "Dominators" прибздели малёк? (" found not expedient to interfere?"). Or where were they-London & Berlin parts of the "triangle"-when the half-million Napoleon' army was destroyed by the
"non-European" Russia, which actually saved those "Dominators"?
History is A BIT more sophisticated, buddy. And if You are till now in
captivity of the "Domination" idea(yeah, now, when You have-sorry to
inform You about the obvious fact-to lick obediently Your overseas
Master' a*se), then let's salute it!!! Even Hong Kong knows, I mean...
First learn to read and try some history lessons not published in megalomaniac Balkan school books. I never said anything about the Baltic. For the last 500 years Europe has been dominated by the London-Paris-Berlin triangle and everything in between. Thats where the money and power is concentrated, like it or not, they dont give a shit about a backwater like Bulgaria. A country that is beautiful, full of history and wonderful people and that I happen to like very much. But that does not alter facts.
Since when is the Baltic an important part of Europe, what have they contributed compared to ancient Greece or Bulgaria that laid the foundations for Orthodox Slavic Europe? WHO ARE YOU?
Europe began in the Balkans, who asked YOU what we should call ourselves? You pathetic back-water Baltic nobody, if you disappeared, nobody will know what went away, you probably don't even know yourself. :)
Btw it was the EU, especially Germany that pushed for the breakup of Yugoslavia that sparked those wars, as usual western europeans are hard on the heels on the Americans in becoming spoonfed ignoramuses.
Since when is Bulgaria, or any part of the Balkans considered part of Europe? Europe psychologically ends at the gates of Vienna or anything that was not part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Just remember that 15 years ago the EU stood by and watched your neighbours killing eachother. It took the US and NATO to sort out that nasty business. Nobel peace price my arse. So why not admit Turkey? Would be good for business. If the EU can ever find a joint opinion.
Oh, what is my cool stand towards EU against such a Turkish background. And how not to admire such revelations as:
"EU is the most hypocritical union..."---and Turkey is the most sincere State, sure, any doubt?
"...this union [EU] commits crimes against humanity"---utmost interesting observation. It remains only to сlarify whether Syrians or, say, Kurds belong to that very "humanity"...
