Turkey will launch military action against Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq despite frantic appeals for restraint from America and Nato, its Prime Minister has told The Times.
Speaking hours before the PKK, the Kurdish Workers’ Party, killed at least 17 more Turkish soldiers yesterday, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey had urged the US and Iraqi governments repeatedly to expel the separatists but they had done nothing. Turkey’s patience was running out and the country had every right to defend itself, he said. “Whatever is necessary will be done,” he declared in an interview. “We don’t have to get permission from anybody.”
True but as I said earlier, they are liable to start something which ends with the dismemberment of Iraq, and the creation of a new Kurdistan with the USA as it's strongest ally.
Mr Erdogan, who begins a two-day visit to Britain today, also offered a bleak assessment of relations between the US and Turkey, a country of huge strategic importance to Washington. He said that a “serious wave of antiAmericanism” was sweeping Turkey, called America’s war in Iraq a failure, and served warning that if the US Congress approved a Bill accusing the Ottoman Turks of genocide against Armenians during the First World War, the US “might lose a very important friend”.
Turkey, as the VALLEY OF THE WOLVES clearly indicated has LONG not been a real friend to the AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE, BECAUSE it has clearly LONG harbored the anti American feelings inspired by the ascendant forms of Islam today, so please don't piss on my back and tell me it's raining, Erdogan.
George if you have brains left, signal by beginning the evacuation of Incirlik TODAY. If you don't have such plans, FIRE THE PLANNERS FOR THE MIDDLE EAST, and make the plans TODAY.
What is now going on is HUNTINGTON. The genocide resolution is merely an outgrowth. The PKK is an historical event that was ORDAINED by the Kurds placement for a millennium. This is not a 'blip'
