Turkish PM refuses to rule out Iraq invasion

punditman says@ 1:30 EDT

What’s next Emperor Bonaparte…ah…I mean Bush? Are you having fun yet, overseeing all you hath wrought? Are you still sleeping soundly?

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish Prime Minister, today denied any immediate plans to authorise a military invasion in northern Iraq.

But he hinted that once elections have taken place later this month that he would reassess Turkey’s options.

Mr Erdogan’s comments came amid growing speculation that massed Turkish troops will make good a threat to move across the border to clamp down on separatist Kurdish rebels who use bases there for attacks into Turkey.

Asked if he would reconvene Parliament to authorise military action, a move that would be popular with Turkish public, he said: “Not now. We have 12 days to elections… At the moment our agenda for that period does not contain the issue of (Parliamentary) permission (for an incursion).”

But he refused to rule out the prospect, adding: “This does not mean that it will never happen. We will not hesitate to take any required steps in this regard whenever it should become necessary. But the relevant organs and institutions have not yet reported to us regarding the steps that would make this a necessity.”

Hoshyar Zebari, the Iraqi Foreign Minister, had earlier given warning that 140,000 Turkish troops were massed in Turkey’s border region, ready for attack. He urged Ankara to withdraw and join talks over the problem of Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) rebels exploiting Iraqi chaos to hurt Turkey.

Turkey has not directly responded to the statement, but officials assert Ankara’s right to invade if the US and Iraq do not stem the flow of guerrillas and weapons across the border.

*HOLY JUSTICE BLOGGING BATMAN AND STOP THE PRESSES, WE DID IT AGAIN! CHOCOLATES AND CHAMPAGNE FOR EVERYONE! *

This Web site has received another nomination for the Thinking Blogger Award (TM)
Thinking Blogger Award!

It was given to us by the good folks at two crows preserve-protect.blogspot.com

Here’s what was written:

Suzie Q — unmasks everyone from Rove to Bush to Cheney and recently noted their throwing of Miers’ to the wolves– again.

See it here Justice Peeps! :)

Thanks to all Suzie-Q bloggers for your Tireless Efforts and Kudos to Da’Boss! SUZIE-Q! ;)

*CHEERS*

To reciprocate in kind I picked 5 of my favorite Web Peeps:

1. Crooks & Liars: For their tireless video exposure of all the corruption going on in our Govt and abroad and for letting us hear the deception from our Govt’s own mouth, as we look at their lying eyeballs while they say it!
*Thanks for the all the quotes C&L peeps*

2. Firedoglake: For the labor of love done by Jane Hamsher and Marcy Wheeler(Author Anatomy of Deceit) in regards to the facts behind the sham trial which semi investigated the truth behind the US. Govt’s lies to take us into war against Iraq. I also enjoy “The Spin; I’m in” to which we have adopted on our site. *Cheers Jane, Marcy, Phoenix Woman and all the rest*

3. TPMuckraker: A favorite place to roam for rare choice morsels that somehow escape all the newspapers and appear in flashes between commercials on the TV tube but are quickly interrupted by another celebrity scandal. The TPM folks really cook some good steaks as they are frying all the low life’s in high office! Where is Jack Abramoff when you need a good laugh? LOL*) *Thanks TPM folks for the yummy stuff!*

4. Trunews: This is an upcoming site which has hard hitting news that is ignored by virtually ALL media outlets. Choice political and financial news has been found here as viewed from the few true Christians left out there. They have a daily show here too for those inclined to hear alternative views. *Kudos to the Trunews Team, I even love the End-Time weather Rpts*

5. WorldNetDaily: Overlooking the Fact that they have Chimpcoulter writing for them, I like the non-partisan coverage that Worldnetdaily delivers. They expose the evildoers and have opened up the truth of what is happening at the DOJ with the corruption of Alberto “The US Constitution is Quaint” Gonzales as well as exposing the Orweillan plans to issue fourth the Amero and the North American Union in order to completely destroy the United States work base. America needs more non-partisan news.
*Kudos Peeps, keep up the good work!*

First term Senator David Vitter (R-LA) admitted Monday night that his phone number was on the phone records of the so-called “DC Madam.”

“This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible,” said Vitter in a statement. “Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there-with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way.”

According to Vitter, his phone number appeared on the phone records of the escort service Pamela Martin and Associates before he ran for the Senate in 2004.

From 1999 to 2004, Vitter served as a congressman in Louisiana’s 1st district. The 46-year-old politico is also the southern regional chair of Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign.

In 2004, Vitter campaigned with a promise of “protecting the sanctity of marriage,” and was a co-author of the “Federal Marriage Act” that sought to prohibit courts from interpreting same-sex marriage laws.

“This is a real outrage. The Hollywood left is redefining the most basic institution in human history,” he said then.

Globalist Evildoers have no sense of Justice anywhere in the World and they respect no Nation.. So much for the Honeymoon with PM Brown.. – GEF

EU Leader Encourages British PM to Keep British in Dark About EU Treaty

Luxembourg’s premier, Jean-Claude Juncker, said Britain’s new prime minister, Gordon Brown, is right to hide the fact that the new EU treaty will mean “transfers of sovereignty.” He explained that he supports public debate on the treaty—just not in Britain, where voters would probably value their sovereignty above their membership in the EU.

Congressional investigators condemned the White House this week for attempting to block two subpoenaed former Bush administration officials from testifying in the probe into the firing of 8 US Attorneys. But some scholars interviewed by RAW STORY suggested that President Bush’s assertion of ‘Executive Privilege’ may not fully obstruct former Bush officials like Sara Taylor and Harriet Miers from testifying.

“Where Bush has it all wrong is in the assertion that a claim of executive privilege can prevent former aides from talking about a subject generally,” said Mark Rozell, a Professor at George Mason University’s School of Public Policy.

Referring to former Karl Rove lieutenant Taylor, he added, “There is no reason that Taylor cannot testify, answer any questions that do not trench on presidential confidentiality, and then refuse to answer those questions that indeed would violate confidentiality. Certainly there are some areas that would be protected by executive privilege, even in the case of a former aide. But that is far different than prohibiting her from speaking at all.”

Stick A Fork In It, McCain’s Campaign Is Done!

by- Suzie-Q @ 3:03 PM MST

The Swamp:

Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s two top campaign advisers departed today, a major shake-up for a presidential bid that has been struggling for much of the year.

The resignation of campaign manager Terry Nelson and chief strategist John Weaver was announced this morning less than a week after a reorganization that involved laying off dozens of campaign staff members.

The Arizona senator’s campaign has been hindered by his strong identification with President Bush’s unpopular troop surge in Iraq, high-visibility support for an immigration reform plan passionately opposed by many rank-and-file conservatives and frosty relations with leading religious conservatives.

In addition to Nelson and Weaver, Mark Salter has left the campaign:

Republicans close to the campaign say that Mark Salter, McCain’s long-time chief of staff and co-author of his five books, is also leaving the campaign.

The sources said that the three did not split from McCain amicably.

If the name Salter strikes a bell with you, he’s the McCain aide that went after the New School graduate who spoke out against McCain during the graduation ceremony. Maybe now CNN will stop putting him on as some sort of Iraq expert every other day.

A Democratic Congressman called for Alberto Gonzalez’s resignation and said he wants an independent prosecutor to investigate reports that the attorney general misled Congress in denying knowledge of civil rights abuses by the FBI.

“Attorney General Gonzales has shown an apparent reckless disregard for the rule of law and a fundamental lack of respect for the oversight responsibilities of Congress,” said Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. “The man entrusted with enforcing our nation’s laws must also abide by them – and Mr. Gonzales has apparently failed in that duty.”

Tuesday’s Washington Post reports that Gonzales was given at least a half-dozen reports detailing FBI abuses of power in the three months before testifying to Congress where he sought to renew the Patriot Act. In front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on April 27, 2005, he claimed he knew of no wrongdoing or abuse of power, and that the Patriot Act was free of problems, despite the reports of numerous violations of the law and FBI protocol.

The report detailed acts of unauthorized surveillance, improper searches, and other procedural and legal breaches of civil rights and privacy laws. Gonzales was also briefed on the abuse of an anti-terror tool known as the national security letter as early as 2005, well before the Justice Department’s inspector general made these violations public.

Gonzales also was apparently dishonest when answering questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this year about the national security letters, that panel’s chairman said Tuesday. In written responses to questions from Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Gonzales said he did not know of the FBI’s misuse of the letters until he saw a draft copy of the inspector general’s report, which was released publicly in March of this year.

Bush loses GOP support for war

Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., latest to call for movement toward troop withdrawal

By MATT MYGATT and ANNE FLAHERTY, Associated Press
First published: Friday, July 6, 2007

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sen. Pete Domenici on Thursday withdrew his support of President Bush’s Iraq war policy and embraced a proposal to bring home most troops by March.
The longtime New Mexico senator is the latest of several Republican stalwarts who have abandoned Bush on Iraq in the past 10 days.

Last week, Sens. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., and George Voinovich, R-Ohio, said the U.S. should significantly reduce its military presence in Iraq while bolstering diplomatic efforts. Sen. John Warner, R-Va., this month is expected to propose a new approach.

Gonzales Lied To Congress About Patriot Act Abuses

by- Suzie-Q @ 6:10 AM MST

Today’s Washington Post reports that Attorney general Alberto Gonzales was given a report detailing FBI abuses of power six days before testifying to Congress where he sought to renew the Patriot Act. In front of the Senate Intelligence Committee he claimed he knew of no wrongdoing or abuse of power, and that the Patriot Act was free of problems, despite the reports of numerous violations of the law and FBI protocol.

The report detailed acts of unauthorized surveillance, improper searches, and other procedural and legal breaches of civil rights and privacy laws. Gonzales was also briefed on the abuse of an anti-terror tool known as the national security letter as early as 2005, well before the Justice Department’s inspector general made these violations public.

Nonetheless, when the stinging IG report was issued, Gonzales reacted with surprise, saying, “I was upset when I learned this, as was Director Mueller. To say that I am concerned about what has been revealed in this report would be an enormous understatement.”
