News the HP Doesn't Cover: Turkish Hypocrisy

They still may cover this news but I thought it was worth sharing anyway:
"(Reuters) - Turkey accused a group with links to Syrian intelligence of carrying out car bombings that killed 46 people in a Turkish border town, and said on Sunday it was time for the world to act against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.The two car bombs, which ripped through crowded shopping streets in Reyhanli on Saturday, increased fears that Syria's civil war is dragging in neighboring states, despite renewed diplomatic moves to end it.Damascus denied involvement, but Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said those behind the attacks were from an "old Marxist terrorist organization" with ties to Assad's administration."It is time for the international community to act together against this regime," he told a news conference during a visit to Berlin.Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said in a speech broadcast later on Turkish television: "We will not lose our calm heads, we will not depart common sense, and we will not fall into the trap they're trying to push us into."But he added: "Whoever targets Turkey will sooner or later pay the price.""
You know, Israel has never expected other nations to fight their battles for them. Maybe we should send those Syrian "resistance fighters" a flotilla and then get all offended when Turkey stops it.
