Turkey should stay out of it; they won't. This is predetermined and will spiral out of control as the plan is taking fruition from the 50 years ago when it was implemented.......

Trying to black mail the E.U. is not what the E.U. will accept, considering that they openly when against the I.D.F. in recent events.

This particular nation simply cannot understand how things work on a Global scale.

Almost forgot to add, now what media orientated site would have a gmail account ? , kinda makes you wonder

I dont think the EU would accept, but if they did, this would get real nasty real quick.

There is already much bloodshed. The rebels do not have airpower, and are suffering because of that fact. Turkey could provide clear and organized leadership, along with air and naval units that could repel and counterattack, the criminal raids of TentMan on his own people.

Turkey is doing a cool thing. They are Muslim helping Muslim. This is much better than Western intervention.

Allahu Akbar and godspeed brave people of Libya

I don't know what is more insane, Turkey wanting to send troops to Libya, or still wanting to join the EU.

It's almost like they have a collective suicide pact going on!

Yeah let bankrupt ourselves in a guerrilla war, then we can have our sovereignty bought cheap by Brussels!!

But at least we will be free to open kebab shops from Lisbon to Warsaw.

Alot of nations had alot of soldiers that died in Vietnam, but were you aware that Turkey remained neutral in WW2 and only at January 1945 when the allied foces had lost millions and Germany was coming to an end did they declare war on Germany.

History, it can never be altered but learnt from.

Seriously doubt this is true. The Turks have nothing to gain by doing this and im sure Russia would insist that they stay out of it as well.

I find this story very hard to believe. Turkey was first to say that this is an internal issue and the rest of the world shouldn't meddle. Besides, why would the EU want Turkey to overthrow Gaddafi, especially at the price of Turkey joining the EU.

Sounds like BS to me.

Hi All I'm new here, but just had to say something here. I read last week that the protesters were dead against the west going to their aid but wouldn't mind Turkey giving them a hand, I just thought they really don't know what they are asking for, in 1974 Turkey invaded Cyprus "to Help" the Turkish Cypriots & they have never left!! they have brought their own settlers and now out number the Turkish Cypriots! & this is one of the reasons they are held back from joining the EU right now!

I would think this is just a story based on (ahem) rumour and imagination. One should always consider the source for such stories before proclaiming it as fact. New.am (the website) is an Armenian-run website whose particular slant and motives would be unknown to most of us.

It is worthwhile to point out that Armenia is a small country which borders Turkey and there is little love lost between the two nations. Armenian genocide ring a bell?

Turkey know that their efforts to join the EU are ongoing and that such offers would be inappropriate. Which is why has not happened. There are those who would tickle any chance to prevent it ever happening.

If there was a move into Libya it would be under the auspices of NATO, of which Turkey remains a key member.

I could not agree more. The EU does not want Lybia to become an Islamic state on its borders. If anything to stop this. Knowing those in the E/C, they might just take Turkey upon its offer, after all Turkey is a member off NATO.

Turkey would be invovled either way,yyou look at it,

Look where turkey is situated, it would be a key player,if NATO needed to launch Aircraft from airports in turkey,of a no fly zone is implemented.

Also if nato needs to send supplys to the rebels, turkey would be a key route to go. So yes Turkey would be a key memeber to help out if NATO decided to interveane.
