    Turkey moves troops to the border with Iran and Iraq.
    Many convoys of armored vehicles and soldiers are directed towards the Iraqi border to the town of Derecik. 12 KM from Iraqi boarder and 7 KM from Iran boarder.
    Mobilization.

    For the first time since 1998, the commando brigades of Bolu, Kayseri and Hakkari are joined together. Howitzers, Helicopters are also sent.
    For the first time since almost invasion of Syria in 1998, commandos of Bolu, Kayseri and Hakkari have come together. May God help them all.

    1st, 2nd, 3rd commando brigades are not common soldiers.
    They are special forces.

    Also used in Cyprus "Attila operation" 1974 and almost used against Syria in 1998.
    Hakkari, Bolu and especially Kayseri comando brigates are real legends in Turkish army.

    The spearhead when talk-time seems to be over.

    Good-night.

    Again ... this means WHAT? Is somebody supposed to be worried about this?

    Y'know, y'all thought Saddam's army was something else too, and maybe by Middle Eastern standards it was.

    We destroyed it twice in less than two weeks each time. So WHAT's your point?

    I agree with Gunny. I dont see the significance of moving troops to borders. Maybe Turkey is concerned about terrorists flocking to their country? Maybe they are concerned about illegal immigration? I dont see it. By the way, we put troops in UK and Germany and South Korea and elsewhere every year and it doesnt mean anything in terms of strategic positioning.

    Canavar is a an ultranationalist Turk. He thinks the Turkish commandoes are something special and to be feared.

    Turkey is rattling its saber. I'm just not sure at WHO.

    Yeah, exactly. Terrorism? Mexican immigrants? Gays?

    Pregnant women who know their childbirth pain will be worse than the pain from walking/running on a broken leg.

    Actually, moving those troops to the border is a good strategic move. Give those whackos in Iran something to think about for sure. It would seem to me that the Turks would be somewhat concerned if Iran got nukes.

    I think when Turkey moves 3 commando brigades of about 37.000 special forces to the boarder it is not a routine act.

    The 2nd Turkish Army consisting of 150.000 soldiers together with the headquaters of the second Tactical Air Force Command in Diyarbakir which has the responsibility of three airbases in this boarder region is also there.
