There is a lot more to this tragic event than what is made available, through the thick filtration of our unbiased corporate media, to the average American.
1. The intent of those on the boat.
2. The legal aspect of the confrontation.
3. The moral aspect of the confrontation.
Number 3 has been argued to death, literally. So, I am only going to touch on 1 and 2.
Being a Turkish American and currently residing in Turkey, a close ally of the US and Israel with, surprisingly enough, an Islamist cabinet, my view on this particular subject may surprise some on this board, especially those who make a habit of throwing around the ''Anti-Semite'' accusation / grenade any time anyone dares to criticize any Israeli governmental action. ....
Great post, Turk.
Thanks for your special insight. I wish you or someone like you would have been able to present that POV on our "news" outlets when this mess went down.
I look forward to your future comments on this and the events to come as Turkey becomes THE key player in the ME...especially when the water wars begin. I think Turkey's role in the ME has been deliberately squelched by the Amerisraelis because they are the epitome of the 500 lb gorilla in the living room metaphor.
As always, I default on the side of protecting Americans abroad who are abused by the primative sense of justice that permeates the world and the ME in particular. That's more of a cultural thing for me- not based on logic so much. I stand by my original position but your input , as usual, has taught me a lot.
