    Greece. Grand daddy of western civilization. Grand daddy of democracy. Grand daddy of science and technology. Heck, lots of symbols in science are Greek letters like omega for Ohm, lambda for wavelength, phi for golden ratio, pi for ratio of circumference to diameter etc. Greece has more famous scientists than any other country. Archimedes invented pulley and lever and mirror solar burning weapon that burned Roman ships to crisp. Thales is world's first scientist. France defense R&D company Thales is named after him. Yet, despite having such disadvantage, Turkey managed to beat Greece in defense R&D. Score 1 for non Whites. Score 1 for non Europeans. Score 1 for developing countries.

    Why compare turkey to Greece? A much smaller country in terms of size and population where nobody pays taxes, why turkey not compared to France?
