#1 Erdogan cowards are fully capable of this

#2 *Sigh* It is something expected.

#3 Cultural necessity of the Turks.

Ataturk was way to far out of the main stream culture for it to have taken real hold.

#4 EU, UN, Israel? Not a peep. This is never THEIR problem. We are the most distant country geographically from the ME but the first gentiles to be blaimed.

#6 Franky G(r)om, the Kurds are giving the Jews a run for their money in the "Chosen" category, that is chosen to be the punching bag of humanity.

#7 Armenians, maybe. Kurds (who did the dirty work on Armenians for Turks), never.

#8 G__ my knowledge only extends to the past 60 years. Still, gotta go with the Kurds.

#9 The term applies to an entire world who doesn't give a dam about ME stability or holy land security other than only half of the US pop. The other half want the region to be Paĺestïne. And that latter half will soon over take the former.

The US will not be the "US" in another generation.

#10 Then I hope this whole thing teaches Israel to put minimal faith in allies. The US may just choose arabs over them when the time comes.

While many may feel America has done the right thing here, washing their hands off clean, this will set a snowball rolling that will hit in the next generation probably.

There is no book in which letting Turks have carte blanche over anything is wise.

(a) Wouldn't be the first time
(b) What allies?

#12 Correct.
