    Now that we have a Turk member, I'm curious. I understand the history of the present situation in Northern Iraq but am unfamiliar with the PKK. Who are they and does Iran fight them also?

    I can see why you are confused as to why the US won't let Turkey fight the PKK terror group but where were you when we needed you? Did you not know that this was going to happen?

    in the past Iran backed PKK as Syria did to harm Turkey... Nowdays where Iran+Syria are pressed into the corner, they seek Turkeys help... For this they are fighting against PKK which they self backed in the Past... to win Turkeys support against USA

    The Kurdish area of the world is NOT threatening the US. Why would the US make more enemies than we already have? It's Iran and Syria who are letting weapons and arabs into Iraq to kill Iraqis AND Americans. I'd rather blow the hell out of Syria AND Iran than mess with the Kurds.

    Sorry.. but of american point of view you are right...

    But when we only look at this war on terror from amercan view, this war is twice-tongued...

    PKK is in Northern-Iraq... The Kurds are backing PKK, saying Turkey not coming in North-Iraq to fight PKK...


    So tell me: we are all on fight on terror... why cant those Northern-Iraq kurds not take distance to terrorists?

    Fact....PKK is a Islamist terrorist group supported by the Communist party...ie:China and Russia..
    Turkey,Iran and Syria are playing both sides of the fence in this issue...much as they did over the Afghan/Russia war...and much as the US also did when we originally supported Saddam over Iran...much as did Carter when he refused to support the Shaw of Iran and then caused major problems in this area....So what do we do now...support another group such as PKK and start the whole mess all over again? Or do we just blow the hell out of them all and eliminate the problem...because diplomacy is not and has not worked for anyone in the past...so I pass the ball to all you players of words...what shall it be....go on as usual or incorporate glass factories in the Middle East...cause I for one am really tired of all this political BS!!!!! :2guns:
