Looks like Turkey has come to threaten Iraq’s freedom and security.
The United States cautioned Turkey on Tuesday against making an incursion into northern Iraq after Kurdish rebels launched attacks from there and urged both countries to work together to resolve the conflict.
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan gave the go-ahead on Tuesday for all necessary measures to be taken against Kurdish rebels, including a possible incursion into northern Iraq, after they carried out a series of attacks.
But the U.S. State Department warned against such a move.
“If they have a problem, they need to work together to resolve it and I am not sure that unilateral incursions are the way to go, the way to resolve the issue,” said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack.
Amen. Turkey must not act unilaterally against our ally the Iraqis. If they try to do so, we shouldn’t rule out military options, up to and including taking out the Turkish government.
Let’s not forget, these are the same scumbags who wouldn’t let us use their country as a staging ground when we began Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. Why should we worry ourselves with what happens to them now? What favors has Turkey ever done for us? No, taking them out may work out best for us all in the long run. America will lose a burgeoning adversary, Turkey will become free and Christian, and Iraq’s security will substantially improve. Taking out Turkey, Iran, and Syria at the same time will simplify the Middle East tremendously.
We never should’ve let the Turkish state emerge after World War I. That was France’s mistake. As usual, America is there to clean up France’s mess.
