    This is logical, every nation state would do this, except if they act upon some international accord that would stop them by a treat of force. (Such as British Palestine, or Austria-Hungary.)

    Why are you saying this? Now that I know that you weren't joking when you started this thread, I am really puzzled about your expectations. Are you saying that it is a threat that the US wants Turkey in a war with Syria? How would the people of Turkey vote about such a war? Or, would such a war destabilize Turkey, which is a US-Israel interest against the Turkish people?

    The news has to give the public what it wants, or it loses its audience.
    What does that tell you about the state of the public?

    Yeah, or he had it sitting by his desk and was fiddling with his free hand like everyone on the planet does all the time.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    and it's a virtual certainty that it doesn't.

    But, the media has a great track record of making mountains out of molehills. If the president farts, does that have great significance? OMG, the president farted. Was it a bean fart, or a cabbage fart? Did he do it in the presence of our allies or enemies? Was he talking on the phone at the time? perhaps he's allergic to Putin, and so that made him fart while talking on the phone with him. Does the president like cabbages? If so, or just if someone even speculates that he does, then the cabbage industry has a launch point for a million dollar ad campaign. Millions could be gained or lost on a presidential fart, after all. If it's a bean fart, was it navy beans or pintos? If it's pintos, does that mean he's pro Mexico? Maybe it means he likes illegals from there. It must, or he wouldn't eat pinto beans and fart while talking on the phone to Mexico.

    and on and on. Much ado about nothing.

    That's pretty much all this comes down to. I can't believe we're making an issue about Obama holding onto a baseball bat while taking on the phone.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
