It isn't our job to meddle in disputes between other countries, thats what gets us attacked by terrorists.


I thought what gets us attacked by terrorists are movies on Youtube?

coco ebert: Hmm, part of me wonders if this could be the Syrian rebels stirring up conflict since an attack on Turkey constitutes an attack on NATO and could serve them if they come in and help to topple a regime.

I'm a Turk so conspiratorial thinking is second nature to me.


That and the genocide of Armenians.

saintwrathchild: I'm no expert on the region, but it seems like a really strange/bad time for Assad to chuck a mortar at its contentious neighbor's civilians.

It could have been an accident. TFA said that town gets hit occasionally with stray gunfire from the Syrian Civil War, maybe it was the mortar guy's first day.

It's NATO, of course, but I wonder if that fact influences anything.

It seems like a messy proposition either way, Turkey is sort of isolated down there.

OFFICIAL RESPONSE FROM SYRIAN OFFICIALS

Venus Flytrap: Les! Are you okay?

Les Nessman: I don't know. A man and his two children tried to kill me. After the turkeys hit the pavement, the crowd kind of scattered but, some of them tried to attack *me*! I had to jam myself into a phone booth! Then Mr. Carlson had the helicopter land in the middle of the parking lot. I guess he thought he could save the day by turning the rest of the turkeys loose. It gets pretty strange after that.

Venus Flytrap: [to Andy] *How* is it strange?

Andy Travis: Yeah, right. Les, c'mon now, tell us the rest.

Les Nessman: [freaked out] I really don't know how to describe it. It was like the turkeys mounted a counter-attack! It was almost as if they were... organized!

[Mr. Carlson comes out of his office]: As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!

svenge: Slaxl: There is no 'solution to justice', justice is the target, the destination, not something to be fixed. It's better to let a thousand guilty men go free than kill one innocent person in a retaliatory strike.

Not when those thousand guilty men kill thousands more innocents...


So... kill everyone and hope some of them were guilty of something? Great plan.

WordsnCollision: Farkeld: Hmm, I think your scenario is a bit far fetched. I doubt the Russians would risk a military conflict with NATO over Syria.

Just leaving this here:

History of the Russo-Turkish wars

1 Russo-Turkish War (1568-1570)
2 Russo-Turkish War (1571-1574)
3 Russo-Turkish War (1676-1681)
4 Russo-Turkish War (1686-1700)
5 Russo-Turkish War (1710-1711)
6 Russo-Austrian-Turkish War (1735-1739)
7 Russo-Turkish War (1768-1774)
8 Russo-Turkish War (1787-1792)
9 Russo-Turkish War (1806-1812)
10 Russo-Turkish War (1828-1829)
11 Crimean War (1853-1856)
12 Russo-Turkish War (1877-1878)
13 World War I: Caucasus Campaign (1914-1918)


*checks calendar*

Yup, still the 21st century.
Do try and keep up.

the money is in the banana stand: Slaxl: It's just as well Turkey retaliated, because that brought back to life all those who were killed in the initial attack and because retaliating is permitted in international law it would have been silly to waste that opportunity.

What a load of crap. It sounds like some douchebags in Syria did some crap with a mortar and Turkey just killed the nearest people it could and said "right, that's that then!", and walked away dusting off their hands.

As anyone who's followed attacks on Israel knows, these people set up shop in residential areas, fire their crap and leave, wait for the response, then come back with television cameras and go "oooh, unprovoked response on unarmed civilians".

People in that part of the world don't know the difference between revenge and justice, and that's why it will always be a shiat-hole.

So what's your solution to justice? Track down those responsible and kill them with a surgical strike? Have them "stand trial"? Do you just let them kill your citizens because you can't really stop it or find those responsible? Do you risk even MORE lives by securing justice?


There is no 'solution to justice', justice is the target, the destination, not something to be fixed. It's better to let a thousand guilty men go free than kill one innocent person in a retaliatory strike.

Fuggin Bizzy: I had a dream last night that I was out hiking and saw a coyote (possibly a wolf) kill a wild turkey right in front of me.

This is only very tangentially related to this thread, but I thought it was neat.

The "logic" *scoff* of Fark's moon-bats always entertains.

Any nation other than USA or Israel that retaliates when enemies shell and attack civilians it is completely just.

When Israel retaliates against islamists that shell and attack civilians, the "dirty jews" should be thrown into the nearest ovens.

Reading the article, I think Turkish officials and the population in general are acting with great restraint.
I'm sure that after all the planes are loaded and fueled and the artillery is dialed in, things won't be so, congenial.

I'm sure dick Cheney is pissed he didn't think of this. I have a mental image of him sitting in his anti-civilian bunker with the soft whine of his mechanical pump and him slapping his forehead, "DOH! Where's that jackass Rumsfeld? Why didn't HE think of this?? We could be making ANOTHER fortune"
