A Turkish generals' view on the United States


<< In considering the possible role of America, I am inevitably reminded of a remark made by a Turkish general at a dinner party in Ankara very shortly after Turkey joined NATO in 1952, I believe. He was asked how he felt about this new alliance, and he said (and I recall it vividly), "The problem with having the Americans as your allies is you never know when they’ll turn round and stab themselves in the back." >>

Bernard Lewis at Tel Aviv University on January 21 2008
