Excerpt
Excerpt: Turkey is a country of strategic and symbolic value to U.S. policy. It has been a NATO ally since 1952 and, during the Cold War, it was the only NATO member which bordered the Soviet Union. After the demise of the Soviet Union, Turkey remained strategically important because of crises in the nearby Balkans, Caucasus, and Middle East. And, since the September 11, 2001 radical Islamist terrorist attacks on the United States, Turkey’s significance has grown. U.S. policymakers use Turkey’s example to refute predictions of an imminent “clash of civilizations” between the Muslim and Western worlds because Turkey’s Muslim identity has been compatible with its secular, democratic government, role in NATO, and European Union (EU) membership ambitions.
