EU officials and rights groups have accused Turkey of using its broad anti-terrorism legislation to stifle dissent. 
Ankara says it needs the laws to battle Kurdish militants at home and threats from Islamic State in neighbouring Iraq and Syria. 
Brussels wants Turkey to narrow its legal definition of terrorism and change some other laws to meet EU standards – as part of the wide-ranging deal to secure Turkish help in reducing the flow of migrants into Europe.

This is a no brainer. You create a no fly zone in northern Iraq (AGAIN), and support the kurds. EVery time Turkey starts this shit, you send more military aid and security help.

Why the nations MOST at risk are not doing this BAFFLES ME. Germany can EASILY do this. How many old F-104's are floating around Europe? C-130's? Leopard I tanks? M-60's? How many T-54's and T-62's could the former Warsaw Pact nations send??
