    Wow, the Republican way!
    “Let’s get everyone to to forget about the deficit, the crumbling infrastructure, the decrepit Coast Guard Fleet, we’ll just find ANOTHER Mid-East Country to start a war in, so we can all rattle our sabers, and stoke the fires of Patriotism fighting in a country where we don’t belong”
    Hey it worked for the shrub and Dr. Evil 3 different times…!

    They’ve just gotten so in the habit of facing off with unarmed children and women that they just can’t help themselves.

    Assad has learned the art of wagging the dog.

    Yes, We invaded Grenada when Reagan’s poll numbers started to slip. Reagan stopped troops who were going to the Mid-East and detoured them to Grenada to invade British territory. Even though they were unprepared for this, they managed to kick out the 5 or 6 Cuban engineers and overcome the home guard to "rescue the medical students who up to that time had never been in any danger. The airfield that was the excuse for invading was completed by the US. Has it been used for any invasion of the US as Reagan said it would. I think that was an agreement between Reagan and Thatcher as she was quite pissed. Reagan’s numbers came up…

    Turkey is a country, and culture, it is very unwise to “tick off”. Ask Koreans who saw them in action during that little “police action”, or well I remember a Turk in the ’60’s who after a bit of “violence” pointed out that when you attack, or insult ONE Turk, it’s regarded as an insult and attack on all who’ve ever lived, and “honor” must be observed!


    Jeff’s observation here makes me think not so much of Assad, or Turkey, but Netanyahu, Romney, and the war hawks, and chickenhawks, on “OUR” side of the “fence”.


    Crazy is just crazy, whoever is wearing the jacket.

    Well, I guess some of those unarmed children and women from past that blew themselves up while we were looking to help their country were not a problem for those same people you speak of in your statement. Therefore the terrorists must be Republican in your mind.

    We here in Germany have a lot of Turks who
    came in the 70’s and stayed even though they
    made enough money to go back. They have
    kids and grandkids now. And the German
    law-enforcement has a lot of problems with
    honor-killings. It is very, very unwise to go out
    with a Turkish girl – even if nothing happens -
    if you are not fully prepared to marry her
    and move to some dirt-heap in Turkey. Her
    brothers, cousins, parents etc. will go after
    you and if you only end up in hospital you
    can consider yourself lucky…

    That is so true of the Turks in Korea. Caught stealing? Your head went on a pike next to the compound gate! The guys were quite likeable and fun to be around if everything was OK. We used to feed quite a few of them.

    I was stationed in Turkey in a NATO assignment. Nice people, toughest troops in the world. Even the Russians respect them. They used to be very pro American until shrub pissed them off.

    Is this NATO’s door into the conflict?

    Quite possibly.
    Defending an allied nation is a legitimate use of US military power.
    Attacking a nation because “They’re the Enemy!!” isn’t.

    I still don’t think that getting involved in Syria is a good idea, but if they go from a civil war to an international one, we’re going to have to.

    NIce to see I’m not the only one with experience with Turks. I DO respect them, and I liked very much “our guy” back then, but do NOT “cross them”. Something “W”, and Mitt, would NOT know about!!


    BTW “justice”: my friends in the Korean TIger Division (in ’Nam) told of three Koreans who got caught stealing. The Turkish officer hanged them from the gate. When the U.N. “observer” told him to cut their bodies down, he did, but left the heads.


    Yes, Americans DO have a LOT to learn about other cultures and what “tough” really does mean. Our candy a** chickenhawks disturb me for that very reason. Having served with, and dealt with, really “tough” people, as has my son, two generations of experience are EXACTLY why we know America cannot trust our foreign policy to fools, yes, like “W” or MItt, again! (Ask Osama about what going from diplomacy when called for, to “action” really means, or Somali pirates. I trust Obama and his team much further, even in spite of our recent loss in Libya.) “Walk softly and carry a big stick” , IS much smarter than having a big mouth!

    @MortyForTyrant

    Morty, I remember reading about the influx of Turks to Germany at the time it was happening. I remember thinking uh-oh for Germany’s future.
    -
    Somewhat like our influx of foreign labor, only yours was officially approved (I believe) and ours is UNofficially approved.
