    Nay, however much I sympathise with the Kurds we will only **** things up for them more by intervening militarily. We also really could do without being actively engaged in military conflict against a fellow member of NATO.
    Please explain why you support the principles of encouraging a coup to happen against a NATO ally to overthrow the government, and why the principles of economic sanctions against a NATO ally is a good idea: they are two things you debated in favour of last year.

    Without context I have no idea why I said those things - however, my view on the first has changed and I would not support that now, and regarding the second economic sanctions are not military action: I am specifically concerned here about the prospect of other Nato countries coming to Turkey's aid.

    Military action against a NATO ally breaks all the articles of a member of NATO.
    Turkey are more of an ally to us then the Kurds
