George Will’s Turkey trap

George F. Will has a clever question regarding Kerry’s foreign policy. Assuming you want to avoid friction with Europe, would you (unlike Bush) not support Turkey’s admission to the European Union? This is important because if Turkey is admitted to the EU, within ten years (because of its large population) it will have more votes in EU affairs than Germany; never mind that Europe would then border on Iraq and Syria. Maybe international harmony is not the goal of foreign policy. Kerry needs to clarify.
