Imagining a War with Turkey

One of the biggest selling novels in Turkey is entitled Metal Storm, which imagines a war between the United States and Turkey. The war is precipitated by Kurdish terrorists from Iraq, as in recent real-life developments, but it is motivated by the Americans’ desire to conquer the world (with a sinister “evangelical Christian” president advised by the evil Condoleeza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld). After suffering terrible devastation from U.S. bombing, a coalition of Russia and the European Union block the bad guys, though victory for the noble Turks only comes when one of them explodes a suitcase nuclear bomb in Washington, D.C. Then the world lives happily ever after.
