I tried hard to avoid politics , I only care about Turkish people and it is up to them to decide who rules , the Coup attempt made me think of many VCO players I know that MUST join military and in private talks I know it worries them . I know how important Turkey is and how and why the current leader is of great concern in the minds of people who value secular tradition of Ataturk and against repression of media and all dissent .
To USA Turkey is a always a GREAT friend and asset in NATO wit second largest army .
But , my concern is not for history but got personal as I just think of talks with players , and how they fear what may happen with PPK etc. -now with coup as usual it will not be JUST those involved , it is always an excuse to remove more dissent , and I worry only about the people of Turkey not the politics . I worry about my friends I know since 2006-2007 that play VCO . I know them as great people and good players and honest and loyal friends .
The whole world is changing and is one huge pot of turmoil . We have , all of us a common thing called VCO that allows us to ignore this and just be " some guy " and one of many . Just Friends who play a game .
