Turkish responce

Reader comment on item: Ankara at War
in response to reader comment: Here it is

Mr Pipes

I think this is what is going on - there is covert war with Iran started out by Iranians using PKK etc. Syria is just a straw that will break the camel's back. I understand the desire to denigrate Turkey, but Turkey is now fighting this war shoulder with the US, and Israel not against it, so just a little show of support is what Turkey is asking, just moral support.

You can save criticism (in my mind unjustified, but who I am to object?) for the day after mullahs are crashed and we can renegotiate positions vis-a-vis the West. I am against the war but without some kind of UN intervention this thing will only get worse.
