The first thread I ever start on td is trayvons. What a complete fail. I have won dumbarse of the day. I actually looked on the board and didn't see it. I guess I should have tried to search first. Damn. There could be very few that sucks more than being a trayvons.

quote: Article 5 of the NATO treaty would not be triggered if Turkey attacks Syria, and isn't activated by this incident. It requires an attack on a Member in Europe or N America. Syria isn't in Europe.
Incidents in international waters/airspace adjacent to the treaty signatories don't apply? What if things ratchet up and it does spill over into Turkish territory?
