"is to protect the values of Liberty "
The NATO alliance is actually and practically :
a defence-pact between its members
to say it.......... .... very shortly.
Turkey being a member...... ........ and Israel is not .
When the Israeli soldiers attacked the Turkish-registered- vessel
it amounted to an attack on Turkey itself ,
by a non-NATO-country.
Let us now see , what NATO shall do ???
I remember recently ,
when "Afghanistan" allegedly attacked New-York (September 11Th. 2001)
this arguments was used to drag Holland-Belgium, Canada,France, Italy and Spain
into invading Afghanistan , under the umbrella and the charta of the NATO.
there is a NATO , for some
and another NATO........ .for the others
those same countries must now defend Turkey
and eventually invade and punish Israel.
