Todays WSJ had a very nice story on the Turkish economy and the growth of tourism.Thus it is hard to understand the threats by PM Erdogan suggesting he could go to was against Israel .His bellicose statements that their jets can hit Israeli targets is primarily for Islamic audiences.
Surely Israel will not be frightened.Moreover, Israeli jet planes etc would surely respond on Turkish territory.What does he think would happen to his tourism etc.?
He is hoping to exert leadership in the Islamic world.He should be careful not to allow himself to be carried away and do something he and the region will regret.
If anything he is acting like a spoiled brat.
What is Obama thinking or smoking?
HIS JOBS BILL WHICH HAS TO BE "PASSED TODAY", is based upon increased TAXATION AND LESS JOBS .
Of course the bill has to be scored,howevever there is not one fresh idea in the package.
He is out campaigning, and since his speech his disapproval numbers are up.
In an hour or so the numbers from the NY 9 will be in,and that may change the debate.
