    Turkey's on ,off,decisions are a direct reflection of how the Iraq situation is being played out.If Turkey agrees to US forces using their soil then their chances of getting into the EU are zero.Over the long term this will cost them more than any short term gain from the US.As Europe will dwarf the US in the near future,Turkey will be left out in the cold.If Turkey goes with Europe then the Iraq war becomes a harder event to run and even harder to make any solution long lasting.Crunch time for Bush;even Blair can take the booby prize and withdraw into Europe.For Johnny,that retirement home beckons.
