“For many, this will be viewed as an attempt to break up the Iraqi state,” Aaron Stein, a non-resident fellow at the Washington-based Atlantic Council, said by e-mail on Sunday. Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Saturday that the deployment is part of Turkey’s efforts to fight terrorism.

Over the past two months at least 13 wooden boats have turned up, with more than 20 decaying bodies on board. Very little is known about them but investigators have found some evidence that hint at their origins.
Speaking in the House as MPs debate the issue today, the Archbishop of Canterbury said: "The just war criteria have to my mind been met, but while they are necessary, they are not by themselves sufficient in action of this kind".
Turkey can haz into EU?
It is another messy compromise: Jeremy Corbyn gets to set the party line against military action in principle; shadow cabinet ministers get to vote in favour without formally defying the whip. It will be a free vote in practice, but the leadership has maximised the moral authority it claims on behalf of the anti-war left, which in turn helps continue a process of marginalising those MPs who are perceived as refuseniks – or saboteurs – of the Corbyn project.
Not since Hitler ordered General Walther Wenck to send his non-existent 12th Army to rescue him from the Red Army in Berlin has a European leader believed in military fantasies as PR Dave Cameron did last week. Telling the House of Commons about the 70,000 “moderate” fighters deployed in Syria was not just lying in the sense that Tony Blair lied – because Blair persuaded himself to believe in his own dishonesty – but something approaching burlesque. It was whimsy – ridiculous, comic, grotesque, ludicrous. It came close to a unique form of tragic pantomime.

“All of the oil was delivered to a company that belongs to the son of Recep [Tayyip] Erdogan. This is why Turkey became anxious when Russia began delivering airstrikes against the IS infrastructure and destroyed more than 500 trucks with oil already. This really got on Erdogan and his company’s nerves. They’re importing not only oil, but wheat and historic artefacts as well,” al-Zoubi told RIA Novosti in an interview.
Two journalists from an opposition Turkish newspaper have been arrested, accused of spying by an Istanbul court following reports that Turkey's intelligence agency sent weapons to Islamist rebel groups in Syria.
The Russian Defense Ministry announced the deployment of the S-400 systems on Wednesday, a day after Turkish fighter jets had shot down a Russian Su-24 bomber, which had been taking part in Russia's anti-terror campaign in Syria.

Is Turkey collaborating with the Islamic State (ISIS)? Allegations range from military cooperation and weapons transfers to logistical support, financial assistance, and the provision of medical services. It is also alleged that Turkey turned a blind eye to ISIS attacks against Kobani.
Europe's response to the immigrant influx, intelligence failures, and the Paris attacks, followed by calls to abolish "the most sacred of the EU founding principles – open borders policy" have led to an uncomforting conclusion: the EU, with "its conception of democracy is a sham, and Paris was the end of it," according to a UK-based journalist.
Russia is not Poland’s main ‘enemy’. Poland should also fear its other neighbors, such as Germany and Ukraine, which have territorial claims to the country and may divide it, Polish politician Janusz Korwin-Mikke said.
Whoah, I'm going to have to look through some episodes to see if this is really true. Matt & Tray, you sneaky bastards!
CHICAGO (AP) — Cook County prosecutors are expected to charge a white Chicago police officer with murder in the death of a black teenager who was shot 16 times more than a year ago, an official close to the investigation said Monday night.
“The savage terrorist acts on Paris almost immediately resulted in a French-Russian military alliance against the Islamic State in Syria, with French President Hollande and most of Europe dramatically breaking with the Obama Administration’s nearly two-year-old policy of isolating Putin’s Russia over the Ukrainian crisis,” Professor Stephen Cohen, Contributing Editor to The Nation magazine and Professor Emeritus of Russian Studies & Politics at NYU and Princeton, wrote in his article.
