Turkey Refuses to Join US-led Coalition Against ISIS

Perhaps you remember how Obama named Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan as one of his best overseas friends in 2012.

You cannot possibly have forgotten how Obama and Kerry sought to force Israel to accept Turkish and Qatari mediation involving its war with Hamas this past summer.

Well, we are now being told by Lebanon's The Daily Star that Obama's friend Erdogan has decided not to participate in the coalition being formed by Obama to attack the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.

Yet another Obama diplomatic success is clearly in the offing . . . not.

  1. To quote the vultures in the Jungle Book : That's What Friends Are For. And, after all, Erdogan is one of Obama's closest friends (he punches above his weight).... etc
