Before people side with the protestors, remember that the governments/regimes of Turkey, Syria, Egypt, etc. are/were some of America's most important strategic allies in the Sunni islamic parts of the middle east. Radical sunni governments and instability will curtail the west`s ability to nip terrorism in the bud at its origin. Losing any one of these governments to the Arab Spring is as dangerous as having a Taliban controlled Afghanistan. Losing them all is a catastrophe of epic proportions. Turkey is not only religiously moderate and secular, but one of the most important military allies in the global nuclear balance of power.

The area around the Square is similar to Greenwich village, or Soho in London or Bastille and Montmartre in Paris; girls in mini skirts and short pants and a REALLY impressive range of bars. (Turkey offers home grown beers, wines AND spirits.

As for green spaces in Istanbul, the city is growing at a ginormous rate; just try driving through the suburbs!

The countryside on the other hand is often beautiful. When I hiked around the White Mountain we were able to stay in Turkish homes where we (men and wome

Also investigate the current relationship between ANZACS and Turks today, with particular note of Attaturks message to Australian mothers.

We could learn from the Turks; they are good people.
