    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.

    hopefully, on your ignore list

    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.

    If Turkey is that concerned about it, they should be doing something about it. Doesn't Turkey have an army and air force?

    Syria's best and number one resource at present is its global juxtaposition as far as what is being panned for Iran. Why do you think Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan are so important as well? (Just google a map of the entire region.)

    Anyway, free up Syria's airspace, and maybe a few of its airfields for good measure (but not necessary), and this will help open up yet another way to prosecute a sustainable attack against Iran a lot cheaper, safer, and faster than having to go around or avoid Syria while doing so.

    That was not the Turkish government - that was criminals and terrorists. We even have those here.

    What the Turkish government has done is send troops to Afghanistan in support of our mission. Having a country perceived as muslim on our side is a big asset. I have worked with Turkish soldiers and I have no complaints about them. Like the U.S., they have a secular government and pretty substantial freedom, compared to others in the area and most countries with a muslim majority.

    Because the founder of Turkey was an agnostic.

    During the Cuban Missile Crisis JFK traded American missile sites in Turkey (think they were called "Jupiter" missiles) away as a token to get Russian nukes out of Cuba. Maybe history is repeating itself?

    I guess you missed the part where Turkey shelled Syrian military positions for six days in a row after a shell fired by the Syrians landed across the border in Turkey.

    If you think we should get out of NATO that is a legitimate argument but right now we are IN NATO and Turkey is a NATO ally.

    So when Bush was POTUS it was OK to get involved, but now that Obama is, we are not supposed to?

    Bush was a horrific president as well.

    I don't know what it will take to make people understand that the majority of the republicans and democrats are just different sides of the same coin.
