Other troops will arrive from Spain to be placed at the Izmir Air Station in western Turkey, which will now become the centre for ground troops. [Gee, if I was George W. Bush, I'd be the most frustrated person (or whatever) on earth! Barack Obama has sixteen pots boiling on the stove -- illegal invasions/occupations/killer drone strikes/CIA coups all over the world -- and he's generated virtually *no* vitriol/dissent from liberals. MSNBC worships the guy! And, Obama's won the Nobel Peace Prize, to boot! George W. Bush was reviled/protested for doing half of what Barack Obama has done - and, save CLG, rarely does anyone mention that fact. --LRP/MDR]
