Hmm I feel like I've seen this before. Our involvement in middle eastern affairs will bite us in the ass as it has before. We have a tendency to install puppet regimes and then prop them up with arms and money. After these unsuccessful government are overthrown by their people we are forced to intervene militarily. These countries then kill our service men and women with weapons we have provided them. We fail to see history repeat its self.

Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and many more all countries we've overthrown or intervened in their government then been forced to fight against American bought weapons in a hope to contain the very threat we created.

Well, this was announced Dec 4. They said only US, Germany and the Netherlands in NATO have the PAC-3.

good post above kylenewman

Thrilled to know Im paying for Turkey's air defenses now too. So let's get this straight, Turkey gave the Syrian rebels anti-aircraft missiles and now we give the Turks anti-anti-aircraft missile batteries? WTF is going on here?

Any natural resources worth taking? I think we should be compensated for our efforts.

Turkey is a NATO member and the three NATO countries with anti-missile capabilities agreed to help defend 3.5 million Turks against potential Syrian missile strikes with chemical weapons.

Whether we should stay in NATO is a separate question.

Easy there! You will be labeled un-American for such thinking! I agree we create many of the problems we face today. But no, people want to believe otherwise. I agree with you, and ironically the one man that many here just love to disparage actually had the same belief.

Ah... Montana dates. Boys up North will be happy about that!


























If you can't take the joke that's on you. I could have said Texas dates... but they tend to be a bit larger...

They are anti-missile Patriot batteries aimed at defending Turkish civilians against Syrian regime President Bashar al-Assad's chemical-weapon capable missiles.

We have always been involved in the Syrian conflict. But instead of supporting someone who can be reasoned with like Assad, the government is supporting the Al-Queda backed monsters who have been forcing non-muslims out and installing sharia law.

Good job America..

And people wonder why the world hates our government.

Lets replace one dictator with 10,000 would be dictators.

We have managed to back rebels linked to Al-Qaeda or jihadist movements in every country involved in the Arab Spring

kylenewman, good posts.

I think that part of the reason we're supporting Turkey is to try to keep them somewhat in the western camp. Islamists are gaining power there and the once dominant secularists are being slowly sidelined.

And even worse, now we are installing regimes and groups that meet the approval and backing of Barack Hussein Obama. This guy will leave the ME even more unstable than Gomer the Dumb.
