Sad thing about it though is it took a dictator to do it. That Dictator was Ataturk. He said this is what will happen and I will accept nothing else. Because the U.S. is a Republic, it's harder for a switch like this to happen because of all the voting and stuff that happens.

And Ataturk had a gun built into his cane. That's truly badass. Unless the U.S. a good dictator (not all dictators are bad) that has a gun in his cane, a switch like this will take more than 5 years.

And we didn't speak Arabic. There was "Old Turkish" which used Arabic charactors.

Does DJ rock have any idea how this forum operates? It seems to me that despite his 1k+ posts, he doesnt.

What do you mean by that? Don't tell me I don't know how the forum operates because I have a different opinion than you.

It's been changed jackass.

Or he could be talking about how you said the thread was going to get closed.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

I only thought the topic would be closed because the conversation was drifting from the main topic.
