A few weeks ago, the Turkish Air Force held war games with China without first informing the Pentagon (or NATO).  The Chinese fighters flew to Turkey, after stopping in Pakistan and Iran. Now, according to Milliyet, Turkish Armed Forces commandos and the Chinese Army have begun a week of joint training in the Commando School & Training Center in Turkey.  No word yet on whether Turkey again forgot to inform the Americans.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration seems dead set on delivering stealth technology to Turkey without even a review as to potential loss to China, Iran, or other adversaries. Something for the new Senate, perhaps?
