Except anyone who was paying attention, that is. I remember talking about the Iraq War to a class I was teaching, saying that what really concerned me was what happened with the Kurds & Turks. Well, it looks like the almost inevitable Kurdish-Turkish conflict is beginning. Now remember, the Kurds are our closest allies in Iraq. And Turkey is a NATO ally that we are bound to defend. So what do you think happens if our client and ally start fighting?

  • Do you think Turkey withdrawing its ambassador is related to the conflict with the Kurds? I've always found it odd how ambassadors are like human chess pieces which get moved around by countries as a way of sending a message or lodging a protest.

  • I think the Turkish ambassador leaving has more to do with the House committee voting to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide. But it certainly could be a warning to the U.S. We can't function very easily in Iraq without Turkish support.

    This whole thing is getting out of hand.
