Turkey Came Early This Year

TurkeyLooks like Turkey is trying to get itself destroyed even sooner than we’d thought:

Turkish Cobra attack helicopters blasted suspected Kurdish rebel targets Tuesday near the southeastern border with Iraq in a second day of fighting in the area. The prime minister said an escalation of military action was unavoidable.

Three soldiers and six rebels have been killed in fighting, according to local news reports.

As the military pressure continued, the government called a Cabinet meeting for Wednesday to discuss possible economic measures against groups supporting the Kurdish rebels, private CNN-Turk and NTV television reported.

Turkey is reportedly considering a string of economic actions against the self-governing Kurdish administration in Iraq’s north, where rebels are based. The region is heavily reliant on Turkish electricity and food imports, as well as Turkish investment in construction.

The Kurds will probably destroy the arrogant Turkish military. But if they don’t, and if Ankara decides to take on our Iraqi allies, we’ll just have to finish the job. America can’t be expected to endure these aggressive encroachments indefinitely. Not from Syria, not from Iran, not from their special northern buddy the Turk.

These nations are diametrically opposed to freedom in the Middle East. Luckily, we have some friends that are willing to risk their lives and their homes for liberty. The Kurds, the Iraqis, the Israelis, the Armenians, the Greeks, the Afghans, and the Georgians will all be with us when we decide to liberate the Middle East from these disgusting, tyrannical, Islamist regimes. Other nations will surely join in too: the Russians might, for example, as well as our noble British compatriots.

Turkey should’ve been eliminated in 1923, but Ataturk lucked out and killed off the Greeks. He then burned Smyrna to the ground in the greatest atrocity since the Armenian genocide. Why was this nation permitted to endure? Because the French, in their lust for Syrian suzerainty, were willing to strike a separate peace with Mustafa Kemal. Ditto Stalin, ditto Mussolini. With friends like Turkey had, who needs enemies?

And now that nation has the nerve to attack our true friend, the Kurds. How can we be expected to put up with this incursion on the freedom of our friends and allies? I say, strike now, and eliminate the Turkish menace now and forever. It’s better for us, better for our allies, and better for the Turkish people.

  1. News Flash 1: Turkey is on your side, stupid. They´re NATO members and they´re actively helping you by doing your job in Afghanistan.

    News Flash 2: Even Georgie said that they have a right to defend themselves against terrorism by the Kurds.

    LOL!

    The Kurds will probably destroy the arrogant Turkish military.

    Yeah, just like Baghdad Bob destroyed the US military. Militarily, the PKK is a joke. They´re only good for terroristic tactics and light fighting. Nothing to stop the Turks from shutting the border and bombing their infrastructure.

    But if they don’t, and if Ankara decides to take on our Iraqi allies, we’ll just have to finish the job. America can’t be expected to endure these aggressive encroachments indefinitely. Not from Syria, not from Iran, not from their special northern buddy the Turk.

    Cool down. The Turks just want the Kurds to stop attacking their country. They have no interests in taking a slice of Iraq anyway.

    These nations are diametrically opposed to freedom in the Middle East. Luckily, we have some friends that are willing to risk their lives and their homes for liberty. The Kurds, the Iraqis, the Israelis, the Armenians, the Greeks, the Afghans, and the Georgians will all be with us when we decide to liberate the Middle East from these disgusting, tyrannical, Islamist regimes. Other nations will surely join in too: the Russians might, for example, as well as our noble British compatriots.

    The Iwans? Don´t make me laugh. They are actually siding with Iran, stupid. And the greek won´t support any action against Turkey, either. They´re allies as they´re both NATO members. The Iraqis? Aren´t many of them busy blowing US soldiers to bits? And Israel has enough troubles on it´s own without going onto an adventure. Same goes for Afghanistan, their army is busy dealing with druglords and Taliban and even there it needs help from the ISAF. The brits won´t come (NATO!) and the Armenians can´t contribute anything useful either. Seems like you´re standing alone.

    Turkey should’ve been eliminated in 1923, but Ataturk lucked out and killed off the Greeks. He then burned Smyrna to the ground in the greatest atrocity since the Armenian genocide. Why was this nation permitted to endure? Because the French, in their lust for Syrian suzerainty, were willing to strike a separate peace with Mustafa Kemal. Ditto Stalin, ditto Mussolini.

    Nations don´t have friends. Only interests.

    And now that nation has the nerve to attack our true friend, the Kurds. How can we be expected to put up with this incursion on the freedom of our friends and allies? I say, strike now, and eliminate the Turkish menace now and forever. It’s better for us, better for our allies, and better for the Turkish people.

    Try it. The whole European Union will bitchsmack you, so please, try it.

  3. Good point Psychout, America just can’t tolerate countries going about imposing regime change just because they find it convenient. There is a word of that; rouge nation. If Turkey thinks they can run into Iraq and torture and kill people with gangs of mercenary thugs well President Bush is going to have to set them right.

  5. PG,

    Spreading freedom is not being a rogue nation. Sure Iraq has been challenging and the process has been messy, but freedom is like that. You don’t make a liberty omelet without breaking some eggs.

    At lest the Iraqis don’t have to live in terror of death squads dragging them out of their homes and killing them now.

    Which freedom? The only “freedom” Iraqis have today is to fear for their lives every single day.
    And boy, try not to use qoutes from Lenin, mkay?

    At lest the Iraqis don’t have to live in terror of death squads dragging them out of their homes and killing them now.

    The chance of that happening to them has actually increased tenfold. And even more for the christians in the country. That´s why over 5 million have fled the country.

  7. “Why was this nation permitted to endure?”

    Clearly it was because of the lurid sex trade permitted by the Sultan and his perverted administration. It is well know that British and French pedophiles, pederasts, buggerers, boot-lickers, sodomites, ornophiles and scatologists all eagerly headed east to fornicate in Turkey.

    This is really the basis for the founding of the modern Turkish state and, indeed, a good reason for its continuted existance.

    1. I don´t hate america. Just the idiots that are leading it right now. Trying to shove your believes down some other´s throat doesn´t make people like you. It´s bound to make you rather unliked.
    2. I don´t love america´s enemies. I just know that Turkey is an ally of Germany (Ever heard of NATO?) and I´m standing to that. Besides, it takes some cojones to ignore the USA. I respect that.

    I bet you want Osama bin Laden and that funny looking Iranian guy to be invited to the next presidential inaugural, you sick puppy you!

    Definitely not. Remember what I said about people that try to shove their believes down other people´s throats? Besides, Ahmadineschad´s a big bluff. Even if he gets the nuke, he can´t use it. It´d be his and his country´s doom. And he knows that.

    Whatever. Turkey’s such a great ally they’re attacking the Kurds, who are the only ones holding northern Iraq together and deterring the Iranians.

    What? I was just quoting a fomer british Prime Minister…
    And it may be a sad truth, but it is the truth.

    Whatever. Turkey’s such a great ally they’re attacking the Kurds, who are the only ones holding northern Iraq together and deterring the Iranians.

    What would you do if some Mexicans crossed your southern border and began ambushing border patrols, soldiers and policemen. I can quite imagine the US Army occupying northern Mexico here. At least Turkey doesn´t intend to stay down there, they just intend to blow up the PKK´s infrastructure and then leave. And hell, they´re only targetting the PKK, not the Kurds in general.

    PS: I somewhat doubt that the Iranians have any plans to invade Iraq.

  17. Have no fear, Saints, the Good Lord will see to it that Turkey is dealt with accordingly just as He has dealt with California. Praise be to God that He is exacting His wrath on these un-holy places and teaching the sinners a lesson they’ll not soon forget.

    I can tell you that since the majority of Turkish people are thieving whores and severely depressed, they certainly would be happier if they were dead.

    Sad, Sad, but true.

  20. I say we kill them all, now. What is the holdup? Why is there any debate? Why are we even discussing this with these Germans and Canadians? They wouldn’t know liberty if it punched them in the nose.

    Kill the Turks. Kill the Syrians. Kill the Iranians. Light them all up, the good ones have sense enough not to live anywhere near there anyway.

  21. Well, TD, in your smitings, I usually prefer something a little more personal. I guess I’ll take that one, though.

    Thank you.

    Heh. By the way, you’re wrong (but you knew that, didn’t you?). This was the part of the “War on Terror” I feel certain you guys are using irony to show; the fallacy of philosophy that, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” This region of the world is full of odd bedfellows, weird alliances, and strange animosities. Your friend today is your enemy tomorrow. That’s why going into Iraq was so perilous.

    That’s why trying to build relationships with Pakistan is dangerous (or safe, depending on which day of the week it is). We are allies with India, too; so we’re going to start backing Pakistan? We already tried backing Afghan rebels, back in the 1980s. How’d that turn out?

    But I don’t think for a second any of this is news to you. Heck, we even helped Saddam build chemical weapons, to use on Iran.

    I thank you all for using irony and parody to point out how stupid our incursions have been.

    I’ll be even more grateful if TD now pulls out a HUGE rod. Lookin’ forward to it.

    I haven’t the slightest idea who you are, but I know what you are and that is an unrepentant sinner who deserves all of the misery and suffering that the Blessed Father is sending your way. Your filthy talk and profane innuendo makes me sick to my stomach. If you were within hitting distance I would stick my finger down my throat and spew my sick directly into your face.

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. T.D. Gaines-Crockett

  23. “If Black Jack Pershing and his American boys had had been at Gallipoli instead of the craven Anzacs Turkey wouldn’t exist now.”

    1) The ANZACS had little chance of prevailing at Gallipoli because the British Navy dropped them off AT THE WRONG BEACH!

    2) The Gallipoli landing were in 1915: the US wasn’t in WWI at that point, & in ’15 our army was little more than about 100,000 strong and equiped with hopelessly outdated arms and supplies, so they couldn’t have done any better than the ANZACS, even if they had been put off on the RIGHT beach!

  24. Indyandy,

    This blog is a spin free zone so you liberal revisionism doesn’t work here. If it was our American boys at Gallipoli they would have been greeted with flowers and candy. Istanbul would be Constantinople again. Instead what happened thanks to that lieberal Wilson America stood by until tired old Europe make such a hash of things we had no choice but to set things right by sending the AEF (After England Failed). And for all our hard work that what happens? We have Turkey today.

    Small wonder Jesus loves America above all nations.

    Sorry, but the Turkish soldiers at Gallipoli had no flowers and candy in stock. But a lot of lead… And given that your basic armament in that time meant that mexican farmers with german bolt-action rifles were a serious threat to you…

    And the AEF? Yeah, that were those guys that came in in WWI just in time to watch the brits and french win while having done basically nothing themselves except standing at the sideline and watching what a real war is.

    Small wonder Jesus loves America above all nations.

    So that´s why he´s sending over Tornados into the Bible Belt every year….

  29. “This blog is a spin free zone so you liberal revisionism doesn’t work here.”

    That’s not revisionism (of any political stripe): I’m a long time student of WWI history, along with all aspects of world history just prior to, concurrent with, and immediately following it. I have been deeply interested in that whole era for over 30 years and have amassed nearly 100 books on all aspects of it.

    So, unless you can submit proof of an advanced degree in History, with an emphasis on study into that same era, I suggest that you don’t presume to lecture me on it.

    So, in your definition, an elitist is someone who doesn´t let himself get lectured about a topic he studied for 30 years by an idiot that is pulling facts outta his *** half the time anyway.

    Hardly a derogative then. (But a nice slander by you. Shows how mature all those christian/republican fundie wingnuts are.)

    Besides, when were US troops *ever* welcomed with candy and flowers by the enemies army? All receptions I know of were made of lead and/or explosives.

  32. I knew the USA was composed mainly of ignorant conservative idiots but you people have achieved an unbelievable stupidity level. You are simply pathetic. Does anyone have any idea who the Turks are? Or the Iranians, Iraqis, Kurds or any other folks in the Middle East (or in any other part of the world)? You live your little pathetic lives in some godforsaken small town where your only knowledge of the outside world comes through the local media run by god knows what kind of a shallow redneck fascist.
    You lack the slightest knowledge of history, maybe because you have none yourselves. You are so confined within your own perverted twisted view of the world which you know nothing about. I pity and despise you.
