Now we're fighting "Kurdish rebels" in Northern Iraq. The Kurds, who supposedly are our buddies, have a small faction that hangs out in Iraq near the Turkish border and have their sights on rebellion against Turkey, which also has installed a force in northern Iraq to restrain the rebels. The US, which wants to ingratiate itself to Turkey so that Turkey will send troops to Iraq to help fight the Iraqi resistance in the south, has joined Turkey in fighting the Kurds in the north. Got it?
Does this have anything to do with Bush's war on terr'r?
