Valley of the Wolves
So this is what happens after 40 years of NATO membership. The US partnership and its nuclear umbrella are ripped to shreds in this film --one you'll never see in North America but it is showing in all cinemas in Turkey.
Breaking every box office record in the history of the country, the film is about a Turkish avenger who punishes the US military for the humiliating arrest and expulsion of a small Turkish contingent discovered near Sulaymaniyeh in spring 2003. The filmmakers spare no outrage to the audience, showing the US military engaged in defiling mosques, bombing wedding feasts and running a brisk organ trade out of Abu Ghraib prison.
If this film is any indication, the Turkey-Israeli axis is about to crumble. We shouldn't be surprised that Turkey has invited Hamas leaders to Ankara.
