I am very Turkish and for this reason I can see the dangers of seeing one's nation in the light of a imperial history that is irrelevant for our times. It is foolish to claim or to be an empire in these modern times especially when you are still not advanced in many areas such as equality for women, equality for minorities (not only on paper), technology, contribution to science, medicine, art, sports etc. Yes we have come a long way and have wonderful achievements thanks to having a leader like Ataturk 100 years ago. And I am proud of Turkey in a way people like you will always fail to understand. As a result, my humble advice.. keep yours to yourself.
