Hypocrites
Now let’s see: Turkey, our NATO ally, sends troops to capture PKK [Kurdish] guerrillas in Iraq that are protected by the Iraqi government. Those guerrillas regularly cross into Turkey and kill people. [US war secretary Robert] Gates says Turkey has to stop.

The U.S., Turkey’s NATO ally, invaded Iraq five years ago, and is still there. Iraq was never a threat to the United States. U.S. troops have occupied Iraq, overthrown its government, and wrought general mayhem ever since. However, American troops and the puppet Iraqi government have done nothing to hamper the PKK guerrillas hiding out in U.S.-occupied territory.

And the U.S. is telling Turkey to get out of Iraq?
