A whole library filled with “Alluhu Akbar!”
No, “nice shot Larry”.
No, “Next time we should bring an extra case of water and MREs” or “we should have had better camouflage”.
Do you think we’ll get sucked into a war against Russia?
I say no, because there is evidence that Turkey is supporting ISIS, which would be a treaty breaker.
The treaty doesn’t matter. No country is obligated to go to war because of a treaty. The point of the treaty is to influence the actions of other nations before war breaks out. But even if the NATO treaty were binding (and it isn’t) and the USA were obligated to go to war against the Russians, (and we are not), there is noting in the treaty that says what such a war would look like or how much support we would have to give to satisfy honor. I suspect, 50 uniformed lawyers from the 51st military legal advisor’s brigade would be sufficient. Or even sending the Army band to do a morale tour through Turkish air bases. But it will never come to that.
Remember: Saddam Husein shot at our planes every day for ten years (weather permitting) and we did nothing. The Iraninans have been at war with us since 1979 and we have done nothing. The Palestinians refer to us as the Great Satan and WE GIVE THEM MONEY.
No nation goes to war unless they want to. And only John McCain and Lindsay Graham want to. As long as we keep those two nutbags away from the button, we will be fine.
Wars are not random events or accidents. People in power choose to go to war. That ain’t going to happen.
