If Turkey does indeed deny US access to it’s airspace that will put a severe crimp in moving troops into Kuwait before they deploy into Iraq. The air routes pass through Turkish and Iraqi airspace. The only other access to Kuwait would be Saudi Arabian air space. We’ve used that route before but it’s longer and costlier and depends of course on whether or not the Saudis would grant access. Yessir, Speaker Pelosi is playing with fire. Hopefully this won’t have a chance on the House floor.
Don’t forget the Turk denial of movement of the 4th Infantry Division through Turkey at the start of the war.
we need to do more than hope and chat-chat to one another.
We need to FREEP Washington and the media NOW and BIG!
WE need to support our troops and see that they continue to get the supplies and equipment they need to stay alive. That includes food and water (my grandson in the Korengal Valley ("The Valley of Fire" so named because of the daily fighting) is 45 minutes from the nearest running water - only MRE's to eat, etc...and the anti-IED's equipment that helps keep them from being blown up - comes through Turkey...
We can't just sit here and tsk tsk about it.

If we don't make a big stink about this - they well may succeed in shutting down our supply route and causing many more troop deaths and rip the success they have so valiantly won out from under them - and us.
They write up a resolution to condemn Rush over a blatantly phony charge of anti-troops - what the bloody he*l do you call this?
