Now Nato (read Nato as US Germany and the Netherlands) are going to send patriots to Turkey.
At 2-3M a pop- helping out Turkey will only benefit the Raytheon Corp.
Why does Turkey want them? According to them to bolster their Air defenses and protect against ballistic missiles with chemical warheads that Assad just moved to prep for use on his own people and bordertowns near or in Turkey.
Curious ...where the fuck is the Arab League in this? Their cease fire failed. (again)
"AL Jazeera asks - is it time for the UN to step in?" Nice.
Like the UN is some Global waiter to be summoned when push a button to do your heavy liftying.
Id say if thats your position hold us harmless for what it takes to remove the guy- and start writing checks- government sized ones.
Some thoughts - Time to grow up Boys and girls - this is a massacre on your turf and it should be your problem.
1. If the Arab League fails to decisively act to stop him- they then in fact are condoning it and should be treated as a whole as one would treat Assad himself.
2. IF they claim they cannot do it themselves then they aren't really a league but really smaller independent units negotiated as such.
Will be curious to see what el presidente does here.
