Turkey supplying rations to pro-Gaddafi forces
http://blogs.aljazeera.net/liveblog/libya-jun-23-2011-1...

Libyan rebels have been fighting Gaddafi's forces for weeks in the Nafusa mountain range in western Libya. They are slowly making gains, though, and as Gaddafi's forces flee, they leave behind much of their equipment.

Among the supplies at three different bases, Al Jazeera discovered military rations which - according to their labels - were manufactured in Turkey. Bread packets some of inside the rations were produced in March, according to their labels - meaning they were shipped to Libya after the fighting began.

Turkey, of course, is a member of NATO, which has been carrying out a bombing campaign against Gaddafi's forces for months.

1. Is not Turkey a member of NATO? The same NATO
that is fighting this current battle?

2. Reminds me of the Iraqi ammo depot that was left unguarded by the US, and then looted.

Can't have a war if the other side can't fight. :nuke:
