It's weird but I trust Italy more than Turkey. No, it's not Stockholm syndrome.

Italy are 10x more independent than Turkey who would do whatever is asked of them by the US or EU.

At least Italy is working under it's own interest most of the time.

Otherwise they wouldn't have signed up to the Chinese belt road project.

Somalia is being colonized by every country in east Africa and the gulf with the Chinese preparing to join in as well. It was only a matter of time before things would circle back to Italy.

That's just Erdogan posturing for a domestic audience and it's usually limited to the Kurdish issue.

They're still the West's *****.

Then again, Italy is a bit unreliable and stupendously corrupt.

Not sure if they'll do us more harm than good but at least we'd know where we stand with them.
