"In spite of its substantial contributions to peace and security, Turkey has not been a member of the council for almost half a century. Therefore, we rightfully expect the support of the General Assembly for our candidacy."

Thanks to information from a heval in the UK, I have the dubious pleasure of announcing Turkey's campaign as a candidate for the United Nations Security Council in 2009-2010.
Don't believe me? Check out the website. There you can find out more information about Turkey's candidature, about how Turkey is such a humanitarian nation (except for the Kurds that it continues to brutally repress within the "territorial integrity" of the Turkish state). You can also find out about Turkey's foreign policy, if you read Turkish.
However, you will not find any information about Turkey's constitution, a document whose crafting was overseen by generals. You will not find any information about Turkey's history of gross human rights abuses. You will not find any information about the founding ideology of Turkey and its inspiration by Mussolini and Fascist Italy--an ideology that has not changed to this day. You will not find out any information about Turkey's repression of free expression rights for those who dissent from the party line. You won't find any information about how Turkey has never admitted to the UN that it has a "Kurdish problem"; according to Turkey, it only has a "terrorist" problem.
Okay, it does have a terrorist problem and the terrorists are in Ankara.
Anyway, I could go on and on and on, but you get the idea. You should ask yourself which Deep Staters are going to help Turkey in this little endeavor, because they can't do it on their own.
In the meantime, DTP has a campaign song in both Kurdish and Turkish. Both are below. Remember: Vote the Pomegranate!
