Protecting the Kurds
    #1343057 - 02/28/03 02:27 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Uh huh. That is why we are going to Iraq, for humanitarian reasons. Of course we never gave a damn for the Kurds before, but that is beside the (Bush's rhetoric) point.

Now check this out:

(AP) - Kurdish leaders said Friday they will resist if the United States lets Turks join an invasion of northern Iraq, raising fears American troops will be caught in a generations-old ethnic struggle for control of the strategic border region. Turkey plans to send thousands of troops into northern Iraq during any U.S. invasion, ostensibly to provide humanitarian aid for people displaced by the fighting.

The people we are going to save will end up fighting our "allies". This conflict will be one fine mess that may take decades or more to unravel with undreamed of repercussions.

I have been wondering about what deal the US made with Turkey regarding the Kurds. That particular detail has been left out in the recent dealings. It was that the Turks wanted to have thier troops right there as well to prevent all the Kurds from getting together. I guess all that is shot now that the turks are pulling out of the deal.......yehaw...... :grin:
