Further proof that the US only supports democracy when it suits their needs. Turkey’s parliament voted down the notion that US be allowed to use their country as a war base. Many of the people who voted against the idea said they did so because of the way their constituents feel about the war. It was democracy in action. The Turkey military, minister and US government are working towards insisting on a re-vote. No doubt, after twisting the arms of those who voted their conscience.
