    When the whole world wants to murder every single one of you, you are entitled to do whatever it takes. Difference is that you never here the Israelis whining about it.

    The legal Causus Belli was the blockade. The mobilisation gave further justification and the requirement for a rapid response.

    The Eqyptians blockaded Israeli ports in May 1967 and mobilised their army. Blockading a country's ports is an act of war. The Israeli response was entirely legitimate. Not aggression.

    The Six-Day War was a preemptive attack by the Israelis against nations that were preparing for war against them. That isn't aggression, that is self-defense.

    I do not count Lebanon...

    same applies to 1956 Egypt blocked the straits to Israeli ships, an act of war. So your two examples are false.

    I don't think anyone except the turks like where turkey is heading with erdogan. Given that the economy is about to crash the turks might soon change their minds as well.

    Kevin, we disagree on certain domestic issues, but not here.

    I am quite concerned about Incerlik. The nukes stored there, if they stiil are, are the number one concern.
    +1 here!

    Turkey and the US are not alike politically nor are the two governments similar. Turkey had an attempted coup two years ago and many people were jailed without warrant or proof. Erdogan has become essentially a dictator and freedom of the press has been suppressed.

    All governments are fallible and make errors, just as heads of state do. But the resilience of systems of government, especially in western democracies, which Turkey is not, is what is important.
