Iraq Turkey Kurdish border tensions and US hypocrisy.
Posted by QB on June 3, 2007
The situation between Turkey Iraq and US is becoming interesting. Nouri Al Maliki puppet Iraqi Prime Minister warned Turkey not to cross its Kurdish borders and advice them to solve the problem with diplomatic negotiations peacefully. Robert Gates said the following in news conference in Singapore.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Sunday cautioned Turkey against sending troops into northern Iraq, as it has threatened, to hunt down Kurdish rebels it accuses of carrying out terrorist raids inside Turkey.
“We hope there would not be a unilateral military action across the border into Iraq,” Gates told a news conference after meetings here with Asian government officials. Turkey and Iraq were not represented.
Robert Gates caution can be translated simply like this that only US and Israel has the right to defend itself from terrorist with invading sovereign nations with excessive power killing hundreds of thousands civilians and the rest of the world can’t take unilateral action against terrorists. According to Bush own words Iraqi puppet government and US are terrorists as they are protecting and harboring terrorists and Turkey has all right to protect its citizens and country by going inside Iraq Kurdish region to destroy their cells.
Turkish Civilian government is looking weak which is so reluctant to take immediate action after General statement that “as soldiers Turkish military is ready to go into Iraq Kurdish region” and the civilian government has to face public next month in election. This civilian government is not very popular with the secular population might lose their power if they don’t take any action against Kurd terrorists organization PKK.
Nouri Al Maliki puppet Iraqi Prime Minister and the US occupation military too will be helpless to stop any Turkish invasion. US can’t move its troops into Kurdish region because it will create a huge vacuum which will benefit Iraqi Resistance. The situation is interesting as Turkey has the advantage over US and Nouri Al Maliki and I am sure Turkish government know this as well.
The present Turkish government has to go offensive against Kurds terrorists to keep them in power and to please their Military which is very critical of present Prime Minister. Turkish government started with air strikes in Iraq Kurdish region.
