(Turkey, erstwhile Democracy and NATO member, recently elected an Islamofascist Government, and is now apparently sorely intent on joining their Arab brethren in the destruction of Israel. It wouldn't be such a big a problem today except for the history of the Turkish Warrior. In 1915, Winston Churchill, then Lord of the Admiralty and poised to become the youngest English Prime Minister ever, staunchly advocated an armed amphibious landing in the Dardanelles at Gallipoli, consisting of English and their allied soldiers, Australians and New Zealanders. The landings failed miserably, with over 250,000men killed and Churchill's political aspirations apparently being swept into the dustbin of history. Gallipoli was a military castasrophe of such epic proportions that even thirty years later, every time an American Commander ordered "Away all boats!", its memory loomed large in the back of his mind.)


"PM Erdogan: Turkish warships to help break Gaza blockade

Posted by William A. Jacobson Thursday, September 8, 2011 at 3:46pm

I wasn’t sure Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan really would follow through on threats of a military confrontation with Israel over the Gaza blockade, but the recent U.N. panel decision upholding the legality of the blockade over Turkish protests seems to have sent Erdogan off the rails.

Turkey just announced that it’s military ships will escort and protect ships seeking to break the Israeli blockade:

Turkey said on Thursday it would escort aid ships to Gaza and would not allow a repetition of last year’s Israeli raid that killed nine Turks, setting the stage for a potential naval confrontation with its former ally.

Raising the stakes in Turkey’s row withIsrael over its refusal to apologize for the killings, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Al Jazeera television that Turkey had taken steps to stop Israel from unilaterally exploiting natural resources in the Mediterranean.

“Turkish warships, in the first place, are authorized to protect our ships that carry humanitarian aid to Gaza,” Erdogan said in the interview, broadcast by Al Jazeera with an Arabic translation.

“From now on, we will not let these ships to be attacked by Israel, as what happened with the Freedom Flotilla,” Erdogan said."

Israel capped American and Turkish nationals, didn't apologize and threatened to do it again.

Its these diddly sh!t little events that turn out to be the most vexing, yano, like the Assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, Chamberlain going to Munich in September, 1938 and begging Hitler "Please Mr Hitler, no more war! We'll give you whatever you want, but just no more war!"

really? do tell...

and not interested in the liberty. they did apologize and it was found to be an accident.

except among jew-haters.

just sayin'

i am, however, looking forward to turkey's apologies to the armenians and kurds.

they need to clean their own house before they interfere with a lawful blockade.

and then they can kiss my butt b/c i'm not really kee in israeli citizens dying because of a bunch of terrorists in the territories.

It's a legal blockade. Surely liberals must applaud this finding by the UN.

Actually the writing has been on the wall in Turkey for some time. I've been steadily watching the encroachment of a real conservative Islamist movement there for a while.

This will sound weird but what the heck. Despite my penchance for Realtree and shopping at Cabela's in my later years, I still follow fashion.

One of the biggest and best going is Istanbul fashion week. The buzz has been around about this anti west trend for at least a couple of years now and it has a lot of people worried.

Turkey has been secular for a long time. I fear it's being lost to more radical elements.

I know I've never claimed she is. I have no freaking idea how she's been so patient though.
No other country on the planet would put up with the bs from Palestine.

If Windsor was lobbing rockets on a consistent basis at Detroit, all hell would break loose.

Michigan would demand immediate retaliation against Canada. Detroit wouldn't eat that shit off of Canucks.

No way, no how.
