    So following Erdogan's logic Syria, possibly Russia and some other countries also have every right to conduct operations inside Turkey in order to destroy terrorists who committed grievous crimes against civilian population in Syria and elsewhere and are provided with shelter and refuge in Turkey. No?

    There is one set of standards for great nations like Turkey, and another for lesser nations... like Greece for instance whose territorial integrity is threatened everyday. :roll:

    That must be why Turkey is so quick to run and cry to their NATO friends

    Being of sane mind I would say so! We need to point this out to the US and Russia. By themselves, they might never get that idea.
    And let's not forget, Israel is also harboring and nursing terrorists.

    The USA helps groups hostile to Turkey! The US deserves a big '(*)(*)(*)(*) you' from Turkey for that. Is it really to much for Turkey to ask of the USA -supposedly their allies- to denounce a terrorist organisation?? And you get mad at Turkey? Think of what the USA has done. You are not supposed to help the enemies of your allies, you are not supposed to undermine your allies. The least you could've done is talk to Turkey about the kurds, and reach some agreement, but you didn't even do that! Of the turks are mad, they have every right to be.

    Turkey, like any other nation, has allies because it's worthwhile. If Turkey feels that they're not getting anything from the US, why would they help the US? If the US refuses to clearly side with Turkey on this issue, of course Turkey is going to do something. Why wouldn't they? Why would they keep helping the americans when they get nothing in return, when in fact the americans help their enemies? Unless the US changes course, Turkey is very likely to something that is 'negative towards the US' as you put it. Such as kicking out US troops Turkey, refusing to cooperate with intelligence, acting on their own in Syria, attacking kurds and what not. Turkey has their interests, and will act accordingly. And there's is very little the US could do about that.

    If it isn't being told then how do you know? All that I have seen reported is 'military personnel'. Perhaps you can enlighten us further?

    Post 9/11 with the invocation of Article 5 of the NATO defense treaty, Turkey offered up 290- non-combatant support personnel to help in Afghanistan, clearly taking sacrifice to a very high level. Clearly, if asked, we must reciprocate in kind.

    In fact, we should put 290 non-combat support folks on immediate standby, just in case Turkey asks for our assistance.

    So a propagandist says. It's obvious that you are a propagandists since most, if not all threads you started involves bashing Russia.

    You job listed in "TV production" doesn't help.

    Lithuania must have it pretty bad to have such incompetent person working for them.

    Cool story. When did that happen again? Is that why you are so sore?

    There are plenty of worse thing happening out there. But Im sure you know that.

    A kidnapping....well it becomes irrelevant in the face of such extremes. How many political leaders have the the west kidnaped, killed, or deposed?

    I don't hear you talking about that. No. Your choice of topic proves that you don't actually care for such things and instead choose to specifically target Russia. This one sided bias propaganda is why most of your posts are nothing more than what it is. One sided bias.

    That is not to say that you have not made any good point in the past, though few they might be.

    There was a democratic vote; and they are better off for it.

    look at where Ukraine is at now.

    'Ukraine is a moral & political black hole on the brink of collapse'


    Everyone is allowed to make their own choices.

    A person who tries to dictate the choices of others, is a dictator.

    The west is doing this a lot now a days.

    I'm sure if Canada had a vote to join the US, the US wouldn't complain.


    And what is a difference between annexing a European country and another country?

    There is none.

    I wonder how Putin sees his role in the creation of 9 million Syrian refugees.

    He is probably looking at how many the Saud and Turks caused, before he jumped in.

    I'm sureally kiev didn't do such a thing.

    But aside from that. What does the video show exactly? Some troops securing a parliment building? And how can you prove it's russian.

    They look much too clumsy to be russian special forces. Probably mercs.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor...sed-in-Crimea-as-gunmen-storm-parliament.html

    All it says is pro Russian forces.

    "Armed pro-Russian gunmen are in control of the parliament and government headquarters in the Ukrainian region of Crimea"

    Picture a noble in an estate sitting at a dinner table. You got a delegate blabbing in his ear.

    Naturally he will pay no mind to him as he already made his opinion known and pullout an expensive napkin.

    Then as the noble is ignoring the delegate, he calmly ties the expensive napkin around his neck and proceed to eat his meal.

    after the delegate finishes his blabering, the noble would just looks up and say. "I have already told you what I expect and what you should expect if you don't listen. There is no need for idle chatter."

    That's the way I saw it...


    It's an act to show the insignificance of the other party and to shiw your own superiority.

    I think you would have to quote Jdog, for him to explain what he thinks that means.
