9. Yes. There is growing resistance in some European countries
against Turkey joining EU. Clever move.

I was always fore Turkey joining but I don't know what to think anymore. We have a growing US-influence on the Eastern European countries and Bush is supposed to have a lot of influence on Erdogan, also. Plus Erdogan supposedly plans to change the Turkish presidency to something more like the US-presidency which means much more power for the Turkish president. So I'm really not sure anymore if I want Turkey to join.
