Default war situation-current

Us goverment didnt take the expected desicion from turkish parliament at the first meeting.second meeting will be done in a week or ten days
-but during this time us goverment rented some factories,
warehouses,farm and other places from individuals.

America has more then 100 bases in turkey for the moment.LOL
its the first time i see ,hear a goverment rents a place from a individual to store guns,tanks and other war-equipment.....

i think this can only happen in turkey?!? goverment aganist war but people renting their places to us-army .doesnt this sound interesting?

I guessing it's more like "here is a chit load of US cash, don't ask questions and don't hang around"

Thanks timucin. Very interesting information. It sure is interesting to try and follow all of the backroom deals going on as the war buildup continues. I think every country involved with the negotiations is angling for something in return for their support of the USA. Most of them say they are against the war but I think they are just stalling in order to see how much cash they can get out of us. I had to laugh this Monday when the Turkish stock market reacted so negatively on the news that they might not get the $15 Billion aid package if the troops were not allowed to base there. Good luck and keep your head down when the war starts.
