"No, Israel attacked a Turkish boat in international waters. This is a warcrime. The NATO alliance, per treaty signator, would be required to assist

Of course running a bunch a boats with crescent moons on the side chanting "intifada, intifada" headlong into the Israelis is a great way to provoke
a violent response, and they got exactly that. Now they've gained the political capital for a war ala Lebanon 2006. Expect the scuds to start flying
any day now.
"No, the US wouldn't comply, but then that would be illegal. Wouldn't stop us though."
No it wouldn't be illegal for the aforementioned reasons.
