Turkey's parliament approved by a large majority on Wednesday a government request to allow troops to cross into northern Iraq to crush Kurdish rebels based there.
It's over. The second that Turkey actually crosses the border any hope of a good resolution in the Mid-East ends. The only area in Iraq that is currently not a shooting gallery is the Kurdish north. That will change with a Turkish incursion. The majority of US supplies currently come through Turkey, and with that move simply getting the food, fuel and bullets in turns into a train wreck. It also does something that has been on a back burner since 2003, it expands Iraq into a regional war.
Welcome to Hell.
i disagree bad though it undoubtedly is i think it would shape into something like a temporary and limited incursion like the recent one of Israel into Lebanon however the habit of cross border incursions chasing terrorists is a dangerously growing phenomenon
it isn't Hell but it's certainly on the road map there
we ignore violations of sovereignty at our peril -- the invasion of Iraq makes having the US (and the British) argue this case v difficult
