Is WWIII coming?

  1. A number of news websites have picked up on Lebanese newspaper al-Mustaqbal’s claim that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to travel to Gaza himself to break Israel’s blockade the Palestinian territory.

    Ynet news translates the story which states;

    “As part of the open conflict between Turkey and Israel following the massacre against the ‘freedom sail’ to Gaza and the protest sparked in the world, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is considering going to Gaza himself in order to break the blockade imposed on the Strip.”

    Al-Mustaqbal also reports that Erdogan has informed the US Administration of his plan to send a Turkish naval escort with another flotilla of aid, but that the Americans have requested the Prime Minister delay the escalation.

    The prospect of the naval confrontation between Turkey and Israel is a dangerous escalation of the crisis, potentially resulting in open conflict between the two states, which could easily draw in Israel’s traditional enemies.


    Turkish PM going to be on another aid ship with a Turkish naval escort?

  2. Why am I not surprised?
    Hamas is not a terrorist organization, it is a resistance movement, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared on Friday at a rally in the Turkish province of Konya, according to local daily Hurriyet.

    I wonder if he'd be willing to move to Sderod too if he does break the blockade and Hamas rockets targeting innocent Israeli civilians start flying again. I wonder when he is going to ackowledge the Armenian genocide and stop the ongoing Kurdish genocide. He can see a speck that is in his brother's eye, but does not notice the log that is in his own eye :mad:
  3. The world has changed since Israel kidnapped and murdered peaceful people from 50 nations in international waters last week. I would not be surprised if a 100 ships sail to Gaza in an armada of peace.

    Notice that Israel got their backs kicked in the war they started against lebanon in 2006. They do not attack Lebanon anymore, and appear to fear that Lebanese guy.

    Israel understands only the language of force. If Erdogan decides to sail to Gaza, the blockade would be lifted before he sails.

    Turkey is a proud nation, and showed its cool. If war takes place, Israel is to blame. They showed the whole world that they are the aggressors, and they violated international laws a large number of times in the short time span.

    I hate to foment but I would say that the IAF could make quick work of the Turkish Air Force and that Israeli naval forces could quickly destroy the Turkish Navy.

    If Turkey was so foolish as to fire some missiles at Tel Aviv they could find themselves looking at the ruble of the Hagia Sophia and large parts of Constantinople.

    You get my drift?
  5. Dream on. Turkey trains israel's pilots. The teacher knows the students. In addition, Turkish armed forces will be motivated, in their right, and would national and international support.

    The only advantage Israel has is the nukes. History shows that the Turks are brave.

    These incidents may lead to Turkey joining the nuclear club.

    President Obama should move quickly here. Turkey is not Iran or the Arabs. They were an empire not a long time ago.

    Israel are courageous in murdering civilians, but are cowards to fight armies. They will lift Gaza blockade soon, if they believe that the Turks mean business.

    The turks are just inately unable to fly airplanes properly.

    Israeli pilots break ground and fly into the wind.

    Turkish pilots break wind and fly into the ground.

    Israel has Strike Eagles. End of Story my friend.
  7. Stop watching videos you may have received from zionist organizations to raise funds. Wars are a real thing, unlike those videos they send which are aimed at the dollars in your pockets. Turkey is a serious NATO nation. They have a professional army. Did I mention "Turkey trains israel's pilots. The teacher knows the students."?

    With exception of nukes, Israel alone has zero chance against Turkey.
  8. Why cant these ships go through the normal channels to send aid? 15,000 tons of humanitarian aid are brought into Gaza each week. What are these ships bringing in that they dont want Israel to know about is the real question.

    I wonder how some of you would feed it if was cuba popping off rockets to florida a few times per week. How upset would you be about people going around a blockade then? How upset would you be if a ship attacked american soldiers that were just trying to make sure there were no rockets on board.
  9. I don't think Turkey's secular military is very friendly towards their islamist gov't, especially if it means the US taxpayer cash being turned off.

    Who knows, maybe Turkey's military enacts a coup over the islamists.
