    In response to the Kurdish attack on Turkey, Turk military forces entered Iraq.

    I guess in a sense this is NATO supported.

    Turkey and Iran have also cooperated in attacks on the PKK and the Kurds, Syria would throw their hat in the ring too but they are busy with their own uprising. Once the US Troops leave Iraq completely expect Baghdad to give Turkey the green light to polish off the Kurds once and for all.

    I think that this will not happen until there is a Middle Eastern Wide War and and
    I see that it still comes.

    Yes, the ramp up is upon us in the ME. It's been going on in earnest for three years and massive weapons transfers are coming from Eastern Europe --> Somalia --> ...

    Yup I read earlier that Israel intercepted a weapons shipment from Iran to Hezbollah, right now all sides are stock piling their weapons, training, getting ready for the big war thats coming.

    ^ We have satellites. Very good ones. :)

    And our top sides are not up our back sides. We see the danger and are ready. I'm hoping for a breakout of peace personally.

    I'm also praying for it.

    Me too, I have been to the VA hospital here and seen the damage done to our young people in the Military, men who are 19, 20 years old missing arms and legs, or with burn marks all over their body, or dealing with PTSD so bad they are struggling to learn again how to live in a civilian world they hardly know anymore. Its very sad stuff.
