There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.

Ive realized that most people ... tend not to be direct when they feel something is shoddy because they want to be liked, "which is actually a vain trait".

Look at their history in the last century. An absolute disgrace and the inspiration for some guy in Munich.

Turkey continues to occupy the nation of Cyprus in violation of the U.S. Military Sales Act, seven U.N. Resolutions and has received the condemnation from nearly every civilized country in the world.

The Turkish persecution of the Kurds, and Christians, which continues to this day, is an absolute disgrace and blight on Mankind.

In 1973 Turkey allowed Soviet overflights to Syria during the Yom Kippur War, and allowed Soviet military shipments through the Straits to Egypt.

During Operation Desert Shield, Turkey sat on the sidelines. During Desert Storm, they allowed limited supply flights from their territory and a few recon flights.

During WWII, Turkey supplied Nazi Germany with chromium until early 1943, while the rest of Europe burned. Albert Speer said that without the chromium supplies, the war would be over in six months. It turns out that he missed the estimate by about eight months.

The Pope was shot by a Turk in 1981. The would-be assasin had strong ties to a Turkish nationalist group in cahoots with the legitimate Turkish government at the time.

I reckon the fact both countries have SAR missions ongoing would say they are not ready to go to war, much as our media would love to provoke some kinetic action in Syria. Sternly worded memos and finger wagging is not having the desired effect.

You got your Iraq wars confused. The Turks let the air campaign be flown from several of their bases during Desert Storm 1991 and the follow-on OP Provide Comfort to the Kurds.

Check out the record of Turkey during Desert Shield and tell me exactly what they allowed.

I said that they allowed some limited cargo flights during Desert Storm but nothing of great consequence. We did not fly combat missions out of Turkey at any time during Storm except recon on a very limited basis. If I am wrong I would like to see the proof.

Anytime I hear about Turkey's participation in Provide Comfort, its LOL. While the US provided some frozen turkeys and some comfort, the Turks were on the other side of the border, conducting raids into Iraq to slaughter as many Kurds as possible under the pretext of fighting terrorists.
