The Turks overwhelming hesistation and seeming reluctance into going to Northern Iraq after they had their noses bloodied yesterday seems to me like a testament to their inherent weaknesses as a nation willing to defend itself. Is Turkey overrated? Has any Arrser served or been in close proximity with members of the Turkey military? If so, are they any good? Are they up to the task or are they an overbloated, posturing bunch of idiots like Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard turned out to be upto and shortly after Baghdad fell?
