We're Gonna Go It Alone With You Guys

Yet another nation prepares to hop on board the unilateral bandwagon:

“We believe that in line with our national interests, we should act together with our strategic ally, the United States,” Mr. Gul told the reporters during a meeting in the Turkish capital of Ankara. “It was a very hard decision, we had sleepless nights, but there was nothing left to be done for a peaceful solution.”

I never had much doubt Turkey would end up doing the right thing, even if only symbolically, and even with their domestic political difficulties. It’s all especially encouraging since Ankara’s new government is much less secular than Turkish army would like.

Although this new support might in fact be another case of “only Nixon could go to China.”
