On Turkey, Terrorists and Iran

Dang, they make this too easy:

IT IS NOT merely statesmanlike restraint or responsiveness to U.S., European and Arab every sane person’s appeals that have so far prevented Turkey the United States from launching a military invasion of northern Iraq. Iran. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan President George W. Bush and his military commanders are also acutely aware that such an operation would play into the hands of the Kurdish Workers Party, or PKK, Iranian Republican Guard the insurgent group that is dug into the rugged, mountainous terrain along the Turkish-Iraqi border. Twelve Turkish soldiers were killed and eight others captured in a PKK ambush inside Turkey on Sunday; if there were an invasion, Ankara’s losses would be much higher, while the chances that PKK Iranian Republican Guard bases inside Iraq Iran could be wiped out are small. Meanwhile, Turkey’s America’s gains in integrating its ethnic Kurd Iranian population [in the world community]– a large part of which voted for Mr. Erdogan’s party in recent elections — could be nullified.

It really is too easy. One wonders why war proponents don’t want Turkey to go after terrorists who killed Turkish soldiers, but are so quick to want to invade and destroy Iran. Hypocrites!

Kurdish Terrorists Kill Turkish Soldiers

So Turkey wants to invade Iraq to kill or capture those who killed its soldiers. Sounds like a fairly reasonable demand, seeing that Kurdish terrorists are killing Turks. I mean, don’t we find any excuse possible to want to attack Iran?

But no, the Bush administration is urging Turkey to restrain its activities:

The United States continued efforts today to steer Turkey away from a military incursion into northern Iraq, after a cross-border raid by Kurdish rebels on Sunday killed 17 Turkish soldiers and raised the prospect of an escalating conflict.

The State Department is great at highlighting our own hypocrisy and I’ll let Mr. McCormack do the talking:

As tension increased in Turkey and scattered groups of protesters gathered to demand retaliation, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the U.S. had opened what he called a “full-court press” to keep the situation from deteriorating.

“We want to see an outcome where you have the Turks and the Iraqis working together, and we will do what we can to resolve the issue without a Turkish cross-border incursion,” McCormack said.

Huh, let’s change those words just slightly and see if it makes any sense:

“We want to see an outcome where you have the Turks Americans and the Iraqis Iranians working together, and we will do what we can to resolve the issue without a Turkish American cross-border incursion [into Iran],” McCormack said.

Makes good sense to me. Doesn’t it to you?

This is really damn sad and so shameful for Americans to do this to their own. Have we really fallen this low?

Bush Supports Turkey Against the Kurds

So let me get this straight, the most stable region of Iraq is the Kurdish north, and our most stalwart “allies”—if we can even call them that—in Iraq. But their desire for independence has gotten the Turks to put 250,000 troops at the border with Iraq. So what can Bush do? Well, instead of finding some diplomatic resolution, he helps and supports the Turks in their suppression and destruction of Kurds in Iraq.

What an idiot!
