The Limits of Cairo

Good grief, President Obama's outreach to the Moslem world can't even keep a formal NATO ally that is currently receiving alliance air defense protection from wandering out of camp:

NATO member Turkey signed up on Friday to became a "dialogue partner" of a security bloc dominated by China and Russia, and declared that its destiny is in Asia.

"This is really a historic day for us," Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in Kazakhstan's commercial capital Almaty after signing a memorandum of understanding with Shanghai Cooperation Organisation Secretary General Dmitry Mezentsev.

"Now, with this choice, Turkey is declaring that our destiny is the same as the destiny of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) countries."

Maybe the Israelis can intervene to repair our relations with Turkey. Surely there is something we can apologize for to Turkey.

I don't think that "hegemony" word means what they think it means.
