Isn't Turkey also occupying Cyprus against a UN resolution?

From Reuters

Turkish troops move into Iraq

SILOPI, Turkey (Reuters) - A Turkish commando force of around 1,500 men has crossed into northern Iraq, a precursor to eventual larger deployment, a Turkish military official has told Reuters.

The United States has told Turkey it would not welcome a large unilateral Turkish incursion into northern Iraq, where Kurdish authorities are suspicious of Turkish motives.

Turkey says it needs troops in Iraq to control refugees and forestall any attempt to create a Kurdish state.

Kurdish groups have said they will resist any Turkish invasion.

Turkey has kept a small garrison in northern Iraq for many years, to fight Turkish Kurdish rebels based there.

The Kurds must be very confused, Allied forces are getting them to fight the Iraq army and at the same time the Turks are invading from the north..

Turkey wants the oil fields that the semi-independant Kurds have control over. I think a independant Kurdish nation is not a bad idea.

I hate this kind of politics.

I seriously was laughing at loud when I read this.

I agree, though, that is a horrible and sobering development.

Can't help it, Dredsox remark was just flat out funny, as well as good timing. Get your humor where you can. It's going to be in short supply.

I was afraid of getting flamed for that one.

Interesting bit from MSNBC this morning:

In the north, a smaller force of Special Operations troops worked to create a northern front and also stave off a looming confrontation between two U.S. allies: the Turks and the Kurds.
