HOW ABOUT A CONVOY TO TURKEY, taking “aid” to the Kurds? I’m sure it will be received with gentleness. “The repression of the Kurds in Turkey, Syria, and under Saddam Hussein in Iraq, is one of the great injustices of the modern era. Arbitrarily drawn borders have split a people, who outnumber Palestinians several times over, among several countries. Since Turkey now has thrust itself into the forefront of making sure Hamas can be resupplied by Iran from the sea, I presume Turkey will open its borders to shipments to Kurdish separatist groups, without inspecting those shipments for weapons.”

UPDATE: Reader Bruce Bernzweig writes: “Revote on the Armenian Genocide in Congress … Clearly Turkey is no longer an ally to the U.S. (though probably still one to The One).”
