WHY NOT?

Yeah, I guess it's easier to just do it than to explain why not. But first explain why you get to slather yourself in Cretian Formula and lay on the beach while I do all the heavy lifting.

Recep's recipe. Getting Hamas on the ballroom from the back door. Amazing..
Recep, listen and listen carefully so I don't have to repeat it again in the future. We are going to get Hamas in the ballroom and we are going to dance with Khaled Mashall ... but first I would like to see a gesture of good faith from you.
1 - I want you to take responsibility for the Armenian Holocaust and line up some zlotes for compensation.
2 - How about letting the Kurds breathe and breed free..?
3 - Da'big E.. i.e., EDUCATION..!! How about making it a Law ... a Law with two fists, teeth and sharp nails....Turkish parents, specially on the remote villages of Anatolia, have to see that their daughters get to school, get 'conventional' EDUCATION, a profession ... or else the two parents get thrown in jail for 20 fckkn years..!!
When you have something to show us on those three minor issues ... I will personally kiss Khalled Mashall's ass .. and dance with him.
Until then, fckk you Recep..!! Your own People don't think much of you either..

It's a good thing Turks vote a religious party line or the Sultan's goose would be cooked. None of his campaign promises vis a vis running a "Zero Problem" foreign policy have born actual fruit. I'm still trying to decipher how his Mavi Marmara scheme fit into that process. While the Kurdish insurgents have withdrawn to Iraq (a good thing) the Syrian Spring has delivered a larger, flaming pile of dog crap on his doorstep (a VERY bad thing). These are the guys who are supposed to take over peace brokerage in the Middle east? I doubt he or Davutoglu has a clue about how to turn things around but it's true that Israel can't be expected to negotiate a lasting settlement with the Palestinians when half of them aren't part of the equation.

Nathanyahu can't cut nothing with the leader of an armed faction that imposes itself by internal terror to the Palestinian Population..
They have to go to elections. Get their shit together (as we did or didn't recently ... depending who you ask) and only then we dance..
I hope they are reading us at the State Department and the White House.

Are you serious? The Arab league was sending weapons to Syrian rebels even before it was considered a "civil war", while Palestinians have received nothing but sh*tty peace initiatives and empty words.

I guess it's no surprise I've always found the Arab League to be a limp-dicked organization. What purpose do they serve? I understand why they don't give a shit about Palestine but how can they not do anything about what's happening in Syria? Upwards of 100,000 dead and neighboring countries swollen with refugees in truly catastrophic numbers. Even if they are too weak to stop the violence the very least they can do is put up a concerted effort to provide for the refugees.

Sorry bro, but Arabs suck.

There's really nothing anyone could do now because every possible outcome is going to be negative. Either the regime survives and everything that was lost would be for nothing, or the Salafists win and Syria becomes another Afghanistan with a twist of Saudi Wahabism who's main concern is destroying everything they consider un-Islamic.
And right now there is even talk of other groups linked directly to Iraq's AlQaeda (we have the US to thank for that) who have declared allegiance to Zawahri and some other dude called Al-Baghdadi, who happens to be the leader of Iraq's AlQaeda. Those guys don't take orders from anyone, not even the FSA.

The revolution is no longer pure; a lot of the people who are fighting in Syria right now are not even Syrian. They are Saudi, Tunisian,Iraqis, Egyptian,Lebanese, Moroccan and even Turks. It's just mercenaries fighting mercenaries right now, and it's up to you to decide which mercenaries are better.

As much as I supported the revolution in the beginning, now I really hope Assad wins. Any other outcome will most likely result in more conflicts.

How does my previous post confirm that I maybe in a mid life crisis?. It was about decreasing cancer risk of all age groups.

As I said previously, for purely selfish reasons, Israel is and was better off with Assad in control. These vermin that is kidnapping UN Peacekeepers and disrespecting borders and previous agreements are the worst kind of neighbors. You have smelled the coffee Ahmad. Nice.

When was the revolution "pure"? It may have started with disgruntled citizens wherever it touched down but it didn't take long for Islamists to co-opt the process. Freedom from tyrants became submission to another form of tyranny by way of religion. What's happening in Syria right now is in-your-face opportunism by these pseudo-religious zealots.

It's odd to me that despite occuring in a shame-based culture, there is no sense of shame about this tragedy in the Arab world. The Arab press is reporting on this crisis as though it were just another day in paradise.

We should never have ousted Saddam.

As long as you put it that way you're right. You're not suffering a mid-life crisis, you're gay.

Nothing personal. Learned a long time ago to never take medicine for another person's fever. Did you know that men in their forties are taking Viagra? Why? Do you care? And, Repugnant Beagle, eating ice cream, smelling flowers, etc., is meant to deter a mid-life crisis. Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

“The report didn't say when the men were arrested or tried.”

Of course not. Just swing a couple of non-important citizens from a cherry picker, or not. Maybe, just print it as so. As reliable as their space monkey. LMFAO

Yup. Sadam kept this mfcukers in line. But, Obami seems to have learned something about that. I'm betting that he wants Assad and the Russians to prevail. I do. uh, Ahmad, too. LOL
