Good luck getting your boat to Kurdistan.

Turkey has a blockade?

Man, I hate reverse flotillas! You spend 15 minutes pushing like hell, pause to mop the sweat off your brow with some toilet paper only to have all the work suck back in like a scared prairie dog!

No one expects a reverse flotilla.

Sounds like this is about to get out of hand.

It'll get out of hand, and we'll be lucky to get live video of it.

What Turkey needs is better propaganda. Might I suggest Josef Gobbles.

This should go over well.

If there's one thing Turks have a sense of humor about, it's the Armenian genocide.
 
2010-06-09 4:26:49 PM  
Exactly like that!
 
2010-06-09 4:26:57 PM  
I look forward to the establishing of peaceful diplomatic relations between the sovereign nations of Israel and Kurdistan.

Oh, snap!

tears of joy thank you for making me laugh that hard.

The Kurds are like the Palestinians with worse PR. Nobody wants them in their country, but no one wants them to have their own either.
 
2010-06-09 5:07:00 PM  
When the Turkish military boards the ship in the middle of the night and kills a few people, will the Israelis hold the same view they had concerning their raid on the flotilla or will they be really really upset?
 
2010-06-09 5:07:35 PM  
every time i open a yogurt it spits at me like the dinosaur that killed newman, but i dont go all reverse flotilla on the thing.
 
2010-06-09 5:09:44 PM  
Okay, I'm not pro-Israel's handling of the flotilla, but this is pretty hysterical.

The Turks would have a colossal shiat haemorrhage...The Armenian Genocide has cast a pretty long shadow, and the Kurds are oppressed everywhere.

DIPLOMACY, n. The patriotic art of lying for one's country.
 
2010-06-09 5:11:34 PM  
I'm in favor of this. I think Israel's response to the flotilla was pants on head retarded, but the Kurd's are still getting the shiat end of the stick as well, so if it gets them more airtime and some aid, go for it. I guess doing good deeds out of spite is kinda weird, but whatever gets it done.

"Our plan is to deliver much-needed humanitarian assistance to the Kurds of Turkey, who by the way outnumber Israelis and Palestinians combined," he said.

"And to show that Turkey has its own issues when it comes to the treatment of its minorities, which they should consider before criticizing us."


Oh Snap!

The Palestinians and Kurds are now pawns in the Turkey/Israelli pissing contest. In the end the Kurds and the Palestineans will get the shaft like they always do.

No, but Im sure they'll set one if they see this coming...

Actually deliberately provoking Israel by trying to break through the blockade knowing there are plenty of other ways to get " Humanitarian aid " to Gaza was great propaganda.

I mean, look at how many dupes and useful idiots ( speaking of Josef Gobbles ) bought it hook line and sinker?
 
2010-06-09 5:16:08 PM  
I think it would be pretty cool and kind of hilarious if they actually did this.
 
2010-06-09 5:17:03 PM  
So Israel's defense is that they can oppress the Palestinians because Turkey oppresses the Kurds?
We get it, you're both brutal and repressive. Way to go.
 
2010-06-09 5:17:28 PM  
It has been a loooong time since I thought anything that Israel did was amusing.... And this is not at all amusing.
They just miss the swaztica and the brown shirts it seems....
 
2010-06-09 5:17:46 PM  
Yeah, then Turkey will arrange a huge flotilla of Armenians and Kurds who want to make Israel their new democratic homeland.

/The Israelis don't have too many Palestinians left to return the favor with
 
2010-06-09 5:18:17 PM  
Great idea.. I'm all for it.

Agreed..

however I'm all for this... The Kurds and Armenians are just as deserving as the Palistinians

I propose a reverse-reverse flotilla, to inform the world about how I myself am tormented daily by the colossal retardation of people in groups.

"But Allen", you may ask yourself, "how can I bring real peace and joy into a world so overcome with sectarian idiocy?"

It's simple. So simple that no one can possibly ignore this true, possible, and necessary task to help end this world-wide problem.

Many times, people think that since they can't do a lot, they can't do anything at all. Nothing could be further from the truth! This is a task any American can afford, and the results won't be hidden away in some "aid agency" overhead finance report. The results are immediate and quantifiable!!

To spread viable, speedy, and vitally needed aid to add joy to the world, simply do this:

Send me ten dollars.

That's right! Only ten dollars. For the price of two fancy-lad lattes, you can assist one man in his dreams, whatever they may actually be. If every American were to simply send me ten dollars, the world for me would be such a better place! You cannot deny the beautiful logic of this.

And I don't demand altruism, oh no. Save that for the philosphers who live in bathtubs, travelling the primitive world for a decent man. There will indeed be several people who must be hired to assist me in my goals, whether to apply lubricant, serve drinks, slay enemies real or imagined, why the list goes on and on! You personally will contributing to the personal job market of certain professionals in MY IMMEDIATE AREA! What "Federal" program can offer that?

So please, give. To me. Today! The longer you wait, the longer it takes one man to get ten dollars.

Hey, this is just as logical as the "Israel can't do anything right because they're Israelis" brigade. Right?

as a Jew living in the San Fernando Valley, I pretty much have no choice but to support this, bro.
 
2010-06-09 5:23:49 PM  
A clever bit of propaganda this. Very cynical. Yet strangely brilliant in its conception.

I say do it Israel. We can all use a little humanitarian aid once and awhile. While you are at it send one to the Great Souix Reservation. Oh, wait, its inland so you will have to do an airlift. Well, it worked for Berlin during the cold war.

I like this idea.
 
2010-06-09 5:24:06 PM  
So what happens when the Turks peacefully let in the Israeli flotilla and let them give their supplies to the Kurds?

Other than the fact that there isn't currently a Turkish blockade on pencils, lightbulbs, crayons, shampoo, musical instruments, and construction materials on the Kurds, so they don't really need them.
