Israel has enough nukes to flatten most European and middle eastern capitals...i dont find that hilarious in the slightest.

I can't but help wondering why Turkey are reacting to this incident in the strongest possible terms. I mean, they are not exactly toeing the party line on this one like a good NATO memer it is. Slaughtering Kurds just doesn't quite make the headlines in Turkey anymore, but national interests is a different matter!
Are they trying to deflect attention away from Iran given they, along with Brazil, have recently signed a nuclear fuel swap plan (source). China also appear to be resisting pressure on a UN censure against North Korea at the moment (Source)! Timing seems quite coincidental IMO.
Either away, Israeli F16's v Turkey F16's - the US military industrial complex never ceases to amaze me!
As to Escalation I don't think Turkey has anything technologically compared to Israel
The Turkish Navy has historically been one of the largest sea powers of the Mediterranean.
The Turkish Air Force is one of the oldest air forces in the world and operates one of the largest combat aircraft fleets of NATO

Turkey is part of nato I believe so any attack on a turkey military vessel means Israel is attacking Nato. I dont think Europe is going to sit back either and Europes own army may be called in. Dosent look good for israel and serves them right warmongering fools.
I am just glad Israel isnt part of nato coz if they was this will be one hell of political alliance fallout.

What if the treasonous US government had to leave NATO so it could sell out American interests, yet again, for its masters in Israel?

Sorry but I think this is good news , it's about time that someone had the spuds to stand up to Israel
Whats Israel going to do , start a war with Turkey .... I don't think so .
The only way to beat a BULLY is to stand up to them .
I received the following message from a member of the Belfast Palestine Solidarity Committee which has received word from the Free Gaza Movement that those aboard the Irish vessel "Rachel Corrie" have decided to proceed to Gaza. A full press release is expected shortly.
