of course the world is putting financial pressure on turkey. they do not want to help a country who is led by none-secular tyrants who have imprisoned teachers, journalists, forces personnel, and anybody else who happens to disagree with their barbarism (i chose my words carefully when i said non-secular - i do not want to offend anybody, do i!)

Good point Kim, but no country can come anywhere near Germany for bullying. They are the masters at it.

Talking about the EU at this point, Most European countries had colonies in the past.


Last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel asked EU leaders to cut pre-accession funds to Turkey, pointing to an "utterly unsatisfactory situation with regards to human rights."

Bloomberg published a report Wednesday, claiming that Germany was actively working to cut funding to Turkey from the country's state-owned KfW bank, the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

According to the report, more than a dozen government and banking officials confirmed Germany's effort to cut funding to Turkey from the state-owned KfW bank as well as the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
