The world is divinding into two camps just as the American people are. What drives so many in the world crazy is that Americans just didn't buy the whole flotilla ruse. And as for American citizens on board, if you want to be as stupid as Rachael Corrie and put yourself in harms way don't expect any sympathy from anybody except for those who have already made up their minds. And another thing, if it were American SEALs taking the ship there would not be any 'paint ball guns' and restraint as the US counseled Israel. Americans would trade the lives of every one of those 'humanitarians' before even one of the SEALs. And as far as Turkey is concerned you ask what NATO has done for them? How about blunt the expansion of the Soviet Union into the Middle East for 50 years? How soon we forget. I know I will never forget nor forgive Turkey's actions of denial of use during the first gulf war. Erodigan is playing a risky game with his country's flirtation with Islam and the betrayal of of Ataturk's secular vision. It bodes ill for everybody in the world who recognizes that as states go, Israel is a SECULAR Jewish state while the Islamic countries are not at all secular which allows for repression of so many freedoms we in the west hold so dear. And one final thought for all of you who look at the size of the militaries of countries like it was some phallic obsession...war now and in the future will be 'come as you are' conflicts and numbers will not be the determining factor...technology will; numbers only mean more targets. God Bless the United States and may it never turn its back on Israel.
