I know everyone is busy talking about Romney v Obama. But on TV is Europe, the big news is the shelling of Turkey by Syria killing civilians. Turkey then returned fire for the last 36-48 hours and used artillery against the Syrian forces. Turkey's parliament then authorized the Turkish president to use forces in foreign countries if needed. A UN ambassador is saying the Syrian war is spreading. The ambassador bluntly said there is no plan available to stop the war in Syria. Then onto Iran. They are having a financial collapse. They arrested 16 people today for "currency speculation" and driving the currency down. The real problem isnt currency speculators, it is sanctions. The Iraniand are getting desperate and trying to blame even people inside Iran. Back to Turkey. This is a NATO member. They are accusing Syria of arming rebels against Turkey. But to the NATO. The USA has a mutual defense pack with Turkey. We have agreements that if Turkey is attacked, we will come to the common defense. The USA could literally be HOURS away from a war if Turkey claims it is attacked and wants its allies to help its defense. I just wonder aloud how close is the whole place to going up in fire?
