AMERICA: Please Pay Attention b/c Turkey and Iran are bombing Iraqi Kurdistan
Now I know we've all had a heaping lot on our plates as of late and b/c in Bush World: so many crimes/ so little time... but I have been posting about this issue for at least 2 months now b/c I knew it could potentially be BIG, BAD, and NOT what we needed in Iraq. I posted about it June 19/06, on July 20/06, on July 21/06, and on July 28th, 06. Everytime, it garnered a few comments. I knew it was pretty major b/c Juan Cole has been continually discussing it as of late. Well, the Guardian UK has a major story about this, so maybe America will finally pay attention to this: "Turkey and Iran have dispatched tanks, artillery and 1000s of troops to their frontiers w/ Iraq during the past few weeks in what appears to be a coordinated effort to disrupt the activities of Kurdish rebel bases. Scores of Kurds have fled their homes in the northern frontier region after 4 days of shelling by the Iranian army. Local officials said Turkey had also fired a number of shells into Iraqi territory." Will BushCo use this as an opportunity to launch a war against Iran? Will we defend the Kurds, who have been shit on regularly thru history? Will we fight against our supposed ally Turkey (who is now fully tied in arms w/Iran against the Kurds?) How can we even think about waging war against Turkey & Iran (for oh-so-many tactical, practical, and monetary reasons) but also b/c the the Kurds' PKK-- that's their site link-- (the Kurdish Workers' Party) is listed as a terrorist organization by the US and the EU. I thought Bush was REAL adamant about NOT harboring, supporting, or providing aid/comfort to terrorists? Guess that makes the US claims against Syria & Iran for supporting and supplying arms/ money to Hezbollah NULL and VOID, huh? And isn't it funny... but ya don't hear BushCo squawking about THIS "terrorist organization" growing under his very nose, now do ya? Oh that's right... that's b/c he can't blame this on the Dems and try to twist this into that Repuke crapola that "Dems allow terrorist orgs to flourish on their watch and make Americans unsafe." Guess what Bush, that little clusterfuck of your's in Iraq has gotten worse... and you own every bit if it. This is what happens when moronic idiots who want to get their bloodthirsty rocks off get to wage wars.... but they won't pay the price for their actions. And who will protect our troops from this colassal fuckup?
