Questions to Which the Answer is “No”

Oliver Kamm has a series on these. This one sort of compares:

After all, Israel opened fire on a ship from a NATO member, Turkey.  Should NATO treat this as an attack on every member nation?

“Israel opened fire on a ship”? … No, Israelis opened fire on the decks of a ship registered in Turkey.

(Other undetermined facts: Israelis may or may not have opened fire on Turkish nationals. Those Turkish nationals may or may not have first opened fire on Israelis. Some passengers of the boat may or may not have been killed by other passengers on the boat.)


[UPDATE, 6/2: The ship was actually still registered in Comoros … Comoros is not a member of NATO.]
