    Turks and South Koreans consider themselves "brothers" not just figuratively but even genetically, as they consider their common Altaic roots to be their lineage. Of course this doesn't apply to what the entire population of both countries belief but this is a popular trend.

    Interesting thread. Even today Turks consider Japanese and Koreans as very close to us. I think that is because our cultures are very alike, even today. I have heard that Koreans, Japanese and Turks all have same genetic origin. That they all came from the Altai mountains. Actually even today, after so many changes in our languages, Turkish, Korean and Japanese have many similarities (altaci languages) Altaic languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    Is this the only foreign combat role the Turkish army has been involved in, in assisting another country in wartime?

    I'm not talking about Turkish NATO troops in AFG, but actual combat role in the defense of another nation? Cyprus is a slightly different issue. Bosnia, Turkish military personnel did provide humanitarian relief but weren't involved in actual combat role, if I remember correctly.

    Mate, don't start. Can we just stick to the Turkish Brigade's involvement in South Korea, and spare this Altaic family topic for another thread.

    This was the first engagement of Turkish troops against Chinese militants aiding North Korea.

    many asian people have a same origin. or close relative in history of course. near skin, ayes, phisical type, etc. except indian, pakistan, bangladesh, is a different root of course. i sense two different genetic root in asia. but in this topic, i like to share somethings. sincerly..

    turkish people has a one brother country: pakistan. not any other country (even azerbaijan) deeply loved like pakistan. if pakistan called us against any enemy, they find our help. except afganistan, india and bangladesh. because we like indian and bangladesh people of course. not deeply like pakistan. but we can not seperate this three country in our heart now. maybe next generation will...

    south korea special for us. we're take lives for this country. and we find good friendship in there. for example: hyundai means turkish brother. we have good relationship in now and in future of course. thats all...

    japanese people is much much more different places in our hearth. because our cultural smilarities magneficant. every turkish people (even most sophisticated academicians, even our farmers) like japanese very much. they have samurais, we have alps. offf if i start to teke example, many years gone... ;) but we can not major interaction in history with them. (kamikaze mean: holy storm to prevent turkish invasion) world is very small now. maybe next generations will...

    china has a different places with us. that country is oldiest enemy in our history. maybe we fight against other more than a 3000 years. (chinas great wall build against us. chinese says: if you remove turkish people in history. then after, you can not say history is exist.) even korea we fight against each other. our racist fractions consider china is still our enemy. but they are very small in our population. but questions is still standing in every minds. we interested china, we are really support this countrys rise, we like to see china is a another global power. with greate cautions of course...

    mongolian people = turkish people. we live togather many tousand years. we have same culture. then we seperate now. mongolia a little bit more than a any other country maybe in our heart. thats all...

    and came to us: turkish people. i must correct this: anatolian turkish people. (türkiye cumhuriyeti: republic of turkey) we're invade this land only 1000 years ago. this special time has another specialities. we accept islam as a faith in same times. islam invade anatolia much more than a turkish people. roman (byzantine) system terrorize this land nearly thousand years. if one turks came here, two different origin christian "volunturely" accept islam. many different race (including greeks) mixed with us. and they accept turkish culture with islam. and later many east european race accept islam and mixed us to. now turkish have a two different race: turkish (genetically mixed but culturally strong one) and kurdish. because of that our eyes and skin color different than a east asian turks. but every one of us cultural pure turk in our heart. and nearly every turk know something: every race is equal. all humans are same. differencies is part of nature of course...

    pakistan people has a one brother country: turkey. not any other country (even China) deeply loved like turkey. if turkey called us against any enemy, they find our help. except armenia, greece and bulgaria. because we like greek and armenian people of course. not deeply like turkey. but we can not seperate this three country in our heart now. maybe next generation will...


    Please take a minute and reflect, I appreciate your kind gesture, but if you like the enemy of your brother, what kind of brother are you? An enemy that has gone to war against your "brother country" that occupies your brother's land. I know most Turks disagree with you. Most Turks I know dislike Hind and support Kashmiri freedom, most Turks appreciate Pakistan unconditionally.

    Kardes, Pakistan, Hindustan, Bangladesh, where not in one country, but one region. However, last time the region was under the unity of any political body besides British was the Mughal Empire (Muslim). Point is we are different, ethnically, religiously, culturally, linguistically, even historically and other factors. History of Pakistan and it's region only is vastly different from the history of Dravidians and Bengalis and other tribes and ethnic groups of Hind.

    Though I would like to return to the topic of Turkish Brigade in So. Korea.

    @ RedBeard

    I know about that video, I didn't want to post it because the music is too beautiful to be shared with many others. Take your video down kardes. :-)

    One of the main problems for the Turkish units attached and deployed with the main American unit was language, the Turkish soldiers didn't know English and the US units of course didn't know Turkish. So often what would happen is both units didn't know what the other was doing or trying to do, troop positioning, moving, where to take defensive position, etc.
