Turkey rejects US troops!
“The United States appeared stunned by the Turkish parliament’s refusal on Saturday to allow the deployment of US troops for a possible war with Iraq.
US officials, who had been prepared to hail the parliament’s approval of the deployment based on initial reports that the vote had succeeded, expressed consternation when told that it had in fact been defeated.
“They did what?” blurted one State Department official”.
Jeez Dubya, all that arm twisting and all those bribes and they still told you to shove it, huh?
