That is interesting!
Denmark had a spot of bother with PGM, where we couldn't get the sourcecode to transfer targeting information from plane to bomb. It was solved in a cottageindustry manner - transmitting to the bomb via reciever on the bomb. (Dial a bomb service)
More interesting: It does indicate a change in policy from the US.
The US cannot expect others to take over the obligations USA formerly had - if the US continually puts obstacles in the way.
It seems like there is a lot of reconsidering going on at the moment.

I am constantly amazed that we do not ask Turkey: "What have you done for us lately?"
Turkey is a perfect example of America's 'deadbeat allies.'

Well, there is Incirlik.
But yes, they have not bend over backwards to be all that helpful.
They have a president Erdogan - well to compare him with something american - Imagine You had Sarah Palin as president.
Just to annoy the ulcer.

Hey stupid. Hosting Nato's Missile Shield Radar at the doorsteps of Iran and Russia requires big BALLS.
Turkey is taking a lot of risks by doing what they are doing. In case of a war between Shanghai Cooperation Countries and US Coalition, the first country to be attacked would be Turkey.  But again IGNORANCE IS A BLISS, so stay the way you are motherfucker.
