    I pondered on the thought of what would have happened when Turkey wanted to go into northern Iraq when the war started there to help the Kurds preserve the oil fields. If they stayed and had kids, would the kids be Turds?

    No mention of any other country going to go there to help out. We need to leave NATO.

    Not true, Germany and I believe the Netherlands are sending some too.

    What I find is comical is when Israel was attacking Hamas for dropping a couple thousand rockets on them, Turkey was calling it unjust and a disparity of power.
    But Syria has 2 mortars stray into Turkey and they amass troops and fire back plus activate Nato help.

    We shouldn't do this at all. Let Israel help them out and they will do better than us.

    If we aren't, then Russia and China will be. And you REALLY won't like the way that turns out.

    We just don't have enough haji 'friends' killing our boys. When they get over there, they also have to be sure NOT to talk ill of the enemy. Or Islam. Or anything else that might offend our allies enough that they kill us to defend their honor. It's as dangerous among 'friends' as it is facing the enemy. This is exactly what they want, is to get us over there to escalate this thing to their benefit. Yes, we must get the terrible economy off of the front page one way or another.

    Lots of Libs on this board must be disappointed.

    They kept harping how their President was disengaging from the region.

    You know - start reaping those conflict saving that was going to magically balance the budget and pay for Obamacare, more social programs, etc, etc.

    I agree! We never get any credit for it and it just wastes our money and resources.
