Just a hot air.Key phrase
"The Turkish ships will provide protection for ships bringing humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip and confront Israeli warships outside of Israel's territorial waters if necessary, according to the report."

In international waters!! and IF necessary and IF another aid.

Israel is trying to claim offshore oil and gas fields in Gazan, Lebanese, and Turkish territorial waters.

Greedy Israel keeps "forgetting" where its borders are per the UN partition plan so Turkey is going to graciously help Israel remember where its borders end and other neighboring countries borders begin.

Egyptians Cheer Erdogan as Turkey Seeks Partnership With Egypt

Thousands of cheering Egyptians greeted Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at about midnight in Cairo, where he arrived to establish a strategic partnership.

The crowd waved Egyptian, Libyan and Turkish flags, as well as those of the premier’s governing Justice and Development Party, while chanting,“Egypt-Turkey: one fist” and “brave Erdogan welcome to your second home.”

Turkey’s prime minister is visiting Egypt for the first time since the ouster of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak. He had publicly called on Mubarak to step down in a televised speech broadcast at Tahrir Square, the revolution’s epicenter.

The premier’s hard line against Israel is also attracting supporters in Egypt, where tensions culminated in an attack on the Israeli embassy last week.

“Turkey-Egypt hand in hand, greetings to Egypt’s youth, to the Egyptian people,” Erdogan said while raising a joint fist with his counterpart, Prime Minister Essam Sharaf.

Turkey’s prime minister will meet with religious, military and civilian leaders during his two-day stay, before moving on to Tunisia and Libya to meet with transitional leaders.

The Turkish and Egyptian prime ministers plan to sign an agreement today establishing a Turkish-Egyptian high-level strategic council, according to Erdogan’s schedule.

Erdogan also got a hero's welcome in Somalia last month too. Turkey has given over $300 million in aid to Somalia as well as food, medicine, set up a hospital for treating famine victims. Erdogan brought 170 expert advisors in various fields in his entourage to meet and consult with Somalian government officials on economic, water, housing, energy issues and infrastructure building. Somalia loves Erdogan!

BTW Turkey under Erdogan has racked up 8.8% economic growth so far this year and has become a mecca for international private investors. Last year Turkey ended the fiscal year with a total of 11.9% economic growth.

This makes raiding those flotilla full of Turkish terrorists and Islamo-fascists a little more complicated this time.

So I recommend that the US and Israel send submarines to down those ships first and call it an "accident".

Then the flotilla must be raided again and all the raki kegs must be split open to find bomb vests.
