#1 Fortunately Europeans are against helping NATO allies. Moreover they lack the capability as their militaries are a joke.

#10 Three years too late. Soetoro would have responded in the affirmative. Close down Incirlik Air Base and get out now before Erdoğan surrounds it and holds everyone for ransom.

#12 McCain's moderates MB, AQ, ISIS type islamists, and neo-Ottomans still need our Air Force. We should support them in Libya too, NATO allies GNA. Life is rich with irony. Call it Orwellian. We are at war with radical islam except when they are useful proxies in Oceania's War with EastAsia. Tomorrow it is known that the chiefs of the Department intended that within one week no reference to the war with Eurasia, or the alliance with Eastasia, should remain in existence anywhere.

#13 Hell I'd be giving the Russians coordinates. But hey, go ask NATO, I understand Belgium shot down a couple planes last year.
