      My words are completely clear to anyone who knows English and thinks.

      Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.

        What are you hearing within Turkey regarding the use of WMD in Syria?  Credible?

        •  Its widely known that Syria has chemical weapons. (2+ / 0-)

          It is also considered to be no big deal because it is understood that they are there because of the state of war that exists between Syria and Israel.

          No one is clamoring for getting rid of them.

          No one believes that they are a real threat to Turkey - it is understood that in some unlikely theoretical scenario they could be a threat but no one believes they are a real threat.

          No one believes they were used by the Syrian military, "You expect me to believe that maybe a dozen people were killed by a chemical bomb attack because of some strange opposition video?!?"

          As far as I can tell the current shitstorm about Syrian chemical weapons seems to be an entirely American - and now a little Israeli - affair.

          I have not seen or heard of anything like this happening anwhere else.

          As to the general Turkish view of what's happening in Syria - the opposition and rebels have essentially been written off by the people and government of Turkey.

          The regard in which the opposition and rebels are held hit a new low this week (I didn't think it could get much lower but it did.) after one Turkish police officer was killed and another police officer, five Turkish soldiers, and four Turkish civilians were shot at the Turkish-Syrian border. It is widely believed here that the rebels were responsible.

          Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.
