    And in the Article there is no indication that Maliki opposes Turkish troops. He was with Jafaari in Ankara 1 to 2 Months ago and assured Turkey that PKK has no right of existence in Iraq.

    The only one who opposes Turkish troops in the article is Talabani, who as a Kurd, indeed is against any Turkish action on Terrorist camps.

    This might actually benefit the new iraqi government. Seeing outer threats often helps unite the people against one common concern.
