Aljazeera is aghast: how could anyone not cheer NATO bombing?

"Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has complained about Al Jazeera coverage over Turkey's Libya policy during a meeting with the emir of Qatar, a Turkish news report published on Sunday said. 
“We are disturbed by Al Jazeera reporting about Turkey. We cannot understand why there is this hostility against Turkey,” Erdoğan said during a Friday meeting with Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, according to the Sabah daily.   Al Jazeera, owned by the state of Qatar through the Qatar Media Corporation and headquartered in Doha, Qatar, has been critical of Turkey's policies in Libya, questioning its failure to offer help to Libyan opposition groups fighting Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Erdoğan reportedly told al-Thani that the Al Jazeera reporting could have effects on safety of Turkish investors and workers in Libya." (thanks Sultan)
