For far from the first time, it seems Turkey is sending out some strong signals that it's increasingly sick and tired of America reneging on previously made (both privately and publicly), solemn promises.

Turkey on Tuesday warned its NATO ally the United States against repeating violations of Turkish airspace at the border with Iraq, threatening unspecified action.
The warning followed violations by two US F-16 warplanes on May 24, which some Turkish media described as a deliberate attempt at intimidation as Ankara discusses whether it should conduct a military incursion into northern Iraq to strike at Kurdish terrorists based there.
"We warned them not to repeat this... If this happens again... if this takes a different dimension, what we will do is obvious," Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in an interview with the NTV news channel.
He would not specify what action Turkey might take.
Y'know, if we were a couple of cynical old coots we could quite easily come out claiming some seriously justified concerns regarding (more) downright deliberate, United States 'shit stirring' all around Asia Minor.
But, nawrh, never.
NATO's first and second ranked 'standing armed forces', so seriously 'falling out'?
Nawrh, no way. Just too completely incredible to be contemplated. Right?
Anyhow, what the hell could a couple of quirky old Brit codgers (such as we are), possibly know about 'talking turkey' - proper?
