I'm not sure Turkish membership in the European Union is significant

geographically--both Turkey and Greece are members of NATO, and

nobody claims that either country has an Atlantic coast. But any

definition of Asia or Europe (other than giving in, calling it

all Eurasia, and drawing the boundary of Africa at the Suez canal)

is going to be subjective and arguable. It's hard enough getting

agreement on what counts as North America (is the boundary at the

Panama Canal, or at the southern border of Mexico? And what

about Greenland).
