A Message To Turkey's Leader

Rather than agreeing to the demands of his diplomatic-
protesting citizens, for the most part, they have been,
most certainly shall continue to be seen
on an international scale; as the law enforcement
committed unjust actions, out of severe desperation.
The open-minded peoples of his self-conflicting,
two-continent inhabiting nation, outright enraged,
which he discouragingly governs - astonishing
indeed; ignoring your people in anti-democratic
listening to the people must have and should always be priority
on his agenda, and therefore, respectfully
step down. Yet, his plans were directed
elsewhere throughout, which may even create a possible
ethnic dislike in a tiny amount amongst his neighbours - capable;
with his turmoil-developing remarks that might have the potential
to escalate to violent confrontation, when life is already so dismal.
The statement is as follows, 'Thrace is a witness of our history.
This region is representative of our entire history…'
Claiming that the millenniums old ancient lands
of lost-in-the-sands-of-time ancient civilizations,
such as the prevalent Persian, the impressive Illyrian,
the resplendent Roman, the marvellous Macedonian Empire -
the tremendous Thracians, the benevolent Bulgarians
and the glorious Greeks -
the majority of these people still remain living
in their ancestral homelands with unbound passions.
Turkey, never had a hold on the Balkans in their hands,
prior to the conquest, and the subsequent rule by the Ottoman Empire;
this proclamation is solely for votes in the upcoming elections,
which each is as valuable as a sapphire
stone, and possibly on a broader objective, to further
push to attain the prestige's European Union membership
in the future. As his country has obtained ownership
of one of the most gorgeous breathtaking
cities of the world - none other than the forever-standing
old capital of Byzantium - Constantinople of course,
long ago, nowadays, it's known by its current name, Istanbul.
Not to forget the recent hostility between him and Egypt,
he is in close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and acted
upon the dealings of the demonstrators and time in office similar
to his Egyptian counterpart, President Mohammed Morsi, both of familiar
political-sharing points of view, and therefore should be committed.
Without remorse -
he arrogantly ignored his citizen's displeasures
of how he runs the country; many strongly believe,
and shall forevermore be - for generations to come will conceive -
the ideologies of the great, President Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
as the true country's leader.
