And we haven't been previously?

Why would you be surprised by this?
Turkey needs our help apparently.
"The first of two missile batteries the U.S. sent to help protect Turkey from the ongoing conflict in Syria went fully operational Tuesday."
Apparently murdering American tourists, and homocide bombing an American embassy last I checked.
Maybe that is what made Obama like them?
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.
What are you talking about?
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.
As a matter of fact they do have natrual resources:
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.
More like the Muslim Brotherhood needs our help...we've been giving them weapons there for several months and in several other countries for a year now. This is not going to end well at all.
