    but tehy were not as clever as the westerners.....
    So, don't you subscribe to the idea that the Ottoman Empire was a regional stabilization force, until the trio UK+FR+US broke it apart in 1920?

    no ,it was just being called " sick man " by westerners . and yes they didnt demolish it because ottomans had given them hundreds of privileges both politically and economically . and it was the turks and atatürk who ended teh ottoman administration.

    How can you hold the Syrian government responsible when you don't even know if they fired the mortars in the first place?

    EDIT: It also needs to be known that Turkey has been aiding the Syrian rebels (http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/syr...=238&nid=31258) (http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/world...ey1_09-26.html)

    If they weren't busy slaughtering civilians, they'd have that crap under control. If a US military unit went rogue and started poppin' civs, you don't think the US government should be held responsible? Then why'd we pay people.

    1. Did what the Syrians did just an accident or was it deliberate?
    2. I don't think the Turks will do anything drastic at this point. But it could also be an opportunity opener for those who truly want to help the Syrian people get rid of Assad. The Assad regime has closed off any possibility of dialogue. It's their way or the hiway.

    I think we got her response, after wading through unintelligible bull****. It was that her response would be to blame America, Hillary Clinton, and Obama in that order.

    Actually, they wouldn't as Turkey and the rest of NATO have been aiding the Syrian rebels.

    Also, speaking of killing civilians, the Syrian rebels have done that as well (Syrian rebels kill 16 civilians | Al Akhbar English) (Pro-Regime Iranian Journalist Killed by Syrian Rebels - Global - The Atlantic Wire) (BBC News - Syria conflict: Aleppo shootings by rebels condemned)

    What are you talking about? The Syrian regime accepted the peace plan (BBC News - Syrian government accepts Annan peace plan). They just wanted insurance that the rebes were going to obey it as well and when they added this demand, the rebels rejected the plan. (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news...-1226321789955)
