Inexplicably, even our $26 billion dollar offer in grants and aid to Turkey couldn't convince them to support war in Iraq. But hey, there was a long list of other countries willing to take our bribes.Originally posted by: etech

They were victims of Saddam, sure. Beyond that, they were one of the few ME supporters of the war. Didn't nearly 100% of our troops inject themselves into Iraq from Kuwait? Even our huge bribes couldn't convince other ME countries to let us stage troops.Originally posted by: etech
Why do you say "of course the Kuwatis are supportive of what the U.S. is doing in Iraq."?
Is it because they have first hand knowledge of Saddam?
The Kuwaiti?s have first hand knowledge of Saddam and support the US. What else needs to be said?
The Turks don't particularly care for the Kurds. I can see why they would have difficulty supporting the removal of Saddam. He murdered a few hundred thousand of them.
