Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister has called for the bombing Of Israel.
Michael Rubin reports at Commentary Contentions
After assuring both Libyans and Turks that Turkey was not involved in airstrikes on Libya, Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç, of Turkey, said, "We wish that the United Nations had made such resolutions and countries had taken action in the face of incidents in Gaza, Palestine and the other regions
This is exactly the problem I thought might arise from President Obama's endorsement of the trendy principle of "Responsibility to Protect". In yesterday's blog, "The Rise of Samantha Power and the risks for the American-Israel relationship," I speculated that the rationale Obama adopted to bomb Libya bore the risks of others adopting the same "principle" to justify punishing, if not bombing, Israel.
It is not hard to envision that this R2P concept, swirling through the United Nations and in international foreign policy circles, can one day be applied against Israel when that nation is forced to respond from attacks coming from the West Bank, Gaza, and Lebanon.

And yes it is "Obama's military" since he seems free to use it without congressional approval. In essence since Obama is the Commander in Chief of the military and answers to no civilian legislature on the use of military power, we have a defacto Military Dictatorship in the United States.
Why isn’t obama bombing Rwanda?
I hope to live long enough to see GOD strike down HIS enemies. Turkey will surely be among those counted.
It is time they were booted out of NATO. I was there, I could not wait to get out of that country.
Nuke the h*ll out of Turkey, and wherever Samantha Power is parking her filthy self.
We want Constantinople back.
I met a Turkish girl a while back... she was a friend of a guy that works for me. She was an exchange student... she had to return home and she was scared to death. Her brothers had threatened her and she may even be dead by now. She was truly afraid for her life.
Really sad isn't it?
It is beyond that... it is pure evil.
Except if they do, they can never come home....
