#3 The Paleos shoot missiles into Israel. Israel responds with counter fire. Israel is labeled a Terrorist Nation.
Syria lobs artillery into Turkey. Turkey responds with counter fire. So, logically, Turkey is a Terrorist Nation too.

The Paleos shoot rockets and deliberately target civilians in order to kill civilians. They also deliberately place ammo dumps close to schools and mosques of their own citizens.
Israel targets militants and strives to only harm them with great precision.
Yet the Israeli's are called the 'terrorists'.

#5 Turkey is a terrorist nation.
Remember the Armenian Genocide.

#7 In the past decade or so, Turkey has killed about 18k Kurdish civilians (including civilians in Iraq), made about as many disappear and relocated about 50k by coercion.
Not many UN resolutions on this. Not many 'please use proportional force' comments on this. Not many news articles on this.

#9 As I have said:
Erdogan sees Turkey as a power in the Islamic world.
The Obama administration has decided it needs Turkey with regards to Syria and Iran. If it means stroking Edogan's ego and letting him spout off, then it's part of the price.

#10 Agreed Pappy, but Erdogan had a passing opportunity to be a contender, now he nothing but a bum.

#11 Turkey should be kicked out of NATO, all aid suspended and all previous aid repayed or taken out of their ass by destroying parts of their country until equal value is gone. Course, that's about 50 times their net worth.
Wait, they don't have any net worth.

#12 Need Turkey onside to help purge more Christians and Shiites from Syria. Our Saudi ruler demands it, and US does what Saudi demands.
Saudi kills 3000 people in NYC and how many airstikes on Saudi? None.
But we've taken out all their opponents.
