Looks like Turkey is trying to get itself destroyed even sooner than we’d thought:
Turkish Cobra attack helicopters blasted suspected Kurdish rebel targets Tuesday near the southeastern border with Iraq in a second day of fighting in the area. The prime minister said an escalation of military action was unavoidable.
Three soldiers and six rebels have been killed in fighting, according to local news reports.
As the military pressure continued, the government called a Cabinet meeting for Wednesday to discuss possible economic measures against groups supporting the Kurdish rebels, private CNN-Turk and NTV television reported.
Turkey is reportedly considering a string of economic actions against the self-governing Kurdish administration in Iraq’s north, where rebels are based. The region is heavily reliant on Turkish electricity and food imports, as well as Turkish investment in construction.
The Kurds will probably destroy the arrogant Turkish military. But if they don’t, and if Ankara decides to take on our Iraqi allies, we’ll just have to finish the job. America can’t be expected to endure these aggressive encroachments indefinitely. Not from Syria, not from Iran, not from their special northern buddy the Turk.
These nations are diametrically opposed to freedom in the Middle East. Luckily, we have some friends that are willing to risk their lives and their homes for liberty. The Kurds, the Iraqis, the Israelis, the Armenians, the Greeks, the Afghans, and the Georgians will all be with us when we decide to liberate the Middle East from these disgusting, tyrannical, Islamist regimes. Other nations will surely join in too: the Russians might, for example, as well as our noble British compatriots.
Turkey should’ve been eliminated in 1923, but Ataturk lucked out and killed off the Greeks. He then burned Smyrna to the ground in the greatest atrocity since the Armenian genocide. Why was this nation permitted to endure? Because the French, in their lust for Syrian suzerainty, were willing to strike a separate peace with Mustafa Kemal. Ditto Stalin, ditto Mussolini. With friends like Turkey had, who needs enemies?
And now that nation has the nerve to attack our true friend, the Kurds. How can we be expected to put up with this incursion on the freedom of our friends and allies? I say, strike now, and eliminate the Turkish menace now and forever. It’s better for us, better for our allies, and better for the Turkish people.
