    1.As a Turk, I do not blame the Israeli commandos because they have been put into this trouble due to bad leadership and operational planning. Nobody wants to be in their situation. 2.On the other hand, the course of action chosen by Israeli leadership (political and military) was the worst they can choose. They have attacked a ship well off the territorial waters of Israel. And on the other hand, do not forget that Gazza is not part of Israel. They should be clever enough to handle the situation more smooth way. I believe there were other options. 3.If this incident should have been occurred vice versa, I mean if an Israel ship has been attacked at international waters and dozens Jews who are only carrying bars&sticks would have been killed by some other countries armed soldiers, than Israel would probably try to take revenge and would probably assassinate the planners and executers of this operation that caused civilian Jewish lives. 4.Please be honest to yourself. I understand your will to support your troops BUT there is a very big mess that your troops left behind because of bed leadership not at tactical level but at operational and strategic level. 5. No tactical success can prevent a failure at operational and strategic level.
