Turkey needs EU as much as EU needs Turkey..
That is the bottom line.

I am so glad to hear it! Speaking from a British point of view, we have enough immigrants thank you very much - I can't begin to imagine the flood of Turkish workers coming to Britain if they join the EU

It would also hail a sad end to the thriving Dudu industry (as men would no longer have to pretend to fall in love with women from EU countries) lol lol lol

Are you sure that EU needs Turkey as much?What for?
Global crisis is striking every EU country.
Ordinary citizens are not interested in Turkish issues at all(as members of this site are) and do not want any new countries in it.
They oppose new waves of immigrants and spending money on recent members.
Why in your opinion EU should need Turkey?

There are very many reasons why eu needs turkey.
some of them:
The fight against drug trafficking, cross-border crime and international terrorism.
The issue of energy. The Bosphorus is already a key supply route for the world's energy needs.
Azerbaijan to Turkey pipeline , 10 per cent of the world's tradeable oil production will be passing through Turkey.

Turkey's economy is growing faster than any of the current economies of the European Union.
Half of Turkey's trade is already with the EU and it is already a major market for EU exporters.
Politically you have to show that :
a secular democracy which shows respect for Islam can live comfortably in Europe; and EU is not a christian club.

and and
as EU Commissioner for Enlargement Guenter Verheugen once said:
"Europeans will need Turkey because its population is shrinking"

Personally I am for Turkey in EU and I clearly understand your examples provided here except the final one.
Why Turks should solve the problem of shrinking population not Chinese(in EU countries there is constant flow of Chinese families,Romanians are doing pretty well in population growth too)?
Turkey is wanted by EU authorities perhaps but people who live in member countries have not even the slightest idea about Turkey or if they have it is the country associated with its beauty,cheap prices and being holiday resort for economical holidays or worse stereotyped,biased image of Islamic country despite proclaimed secularism.Media show mostly the other image of Turkey with all its problems,poverty,breaking human rights,social unjustice,etc...
I have also some doubts if EU is not a christian club.Church is still powerful and influentail institution in Europe and its opinion matters
