Turkish general: U.S. 'shot its own foot'

Looks as if we are losing more and more allies for our own agenda.

I think what needs to be asked is why are the Democrats pushing this thru Congress?

My theory is that they are hoping that the Turks shut down the supply lines into Iraq. If they can't get anything to limit the war thru Congress, this is a back door attempt to do it.

That's a good point! I never thought of it that way. Maybe in the future we will see more attempts like this.

Gee, It's Almost As If They Want To Undermine The War

Seems rather transparent to me, particularly in light of the timing, political situation and long history of this issue.

As for whether it's ethical or appropriate, I guess that's up to the voters to decide.
