Report: Turkey won’t let U.S. attack Iran from its land: "Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul said Sunday that his country refused a request from the United States to attack Iran from its Air Force base in Incirlik, despite the U.S. offer of a nuclear reactor, according to a report in Al Biyan.

"In an interview for the United Arab Emirates newspaper, Gul noted that America’s efforts to attack Iran are “imaginary” and that Turkey’s stance is “strategic” and refuses the use of its land for any belligerent activity against neighboring countries."

Describing the US plan to attack Iran as 'imaginary' is humiliating for Bush and the neocons. This principled stand of non-cooperation with proposed aggression should be adopted by all countries including Australia.
