  1. And the Turkish Prime Minister is meeting with the current Egyptian leader to “increase” cooperation and friendship between those two nations, this at the time they are both breaking diplomatic relations with Israel. Then this occurs, the fuse has been laid and lite now all we can do is wait for it to burn to the explosive.

  2. Remember he was given the planes when we were staring down the Soviets, yes he is an enemy now but he was an ally them, not allying with him would have let the Soviets take over Turkey and probably the entire middle east. I have never trusted Turkey but we needed them during the Cold War.

  3. Remember after the fall of the old Soviet Union one high Russian official said we were going to miss them? Looks like he may have been right.
