    to run the blockade, even if it means sinking the Turkish naval vessels. It's hard to think that the Turkish navy would allow its ships to be put in such harms way. Without any air cover, the ships are like ducks on the pond for an F16.

      Turkey, a NATO nation?  Maybe they will. It will be interesting to see.  How can Turkey stand down in the face of this slaughter of civilians and maintain order at home?

      What do you think might happen if Russia goes ahead with plans to explore for Palestinian oil off the coast of Gaza?  Think Israel will attack the drilling rigs? Pick a fight with Russia?  That would really be interesting, huh?
