Turkey’s border lifeline for some, road to jihad for other

People watch the border with Syria from a hill in the Turkish territory

Remember this next time some idiot leftist claims the problem in Syria is Turkey not policing its border.
"On a recent trip, one Syrian told this reporter that the ''revolution and many thousands of other people'' would be dead right now were it not for the humanitarian stance of Turkey in allowing injured Syrians - both civilians and fighters, sometimes difficult to distinguish between given the nature of the popular uprising itself and often without a passport - to receive basic emergency treatment at its public facilities.
In contrast with Syria's other neighbors home to large numbers of refugees - Lebanon and Jordan - Turkey has not been criticized by Amnesty International for restrictive border policies harming those fleeing the war."
