US continues to help Turkey against Kurds

I guess Israel is not the only country that acts as if it is clueless about its self-interest.
The United States ambassador to Turkey said earlier this week that the US supports Turkey's efforts to clamp down on Kurdish resistance fighters and is ready to "urgently" consider any new request for help from Ankara.

"We stand ready to review urgently any new requests from the Turkish military or government regarding the PKK,"

Ambassador James Jeffrey said in a written statement on Monday, referring to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has recently stepped up resistance efforts in Northern Kurdistan currently occupied by Turkey.

"The PKK is a common enemy of both Turkey and the US and we actively support the efforts of our Turkish allies to defeat this terrorist threat," Jeffrey said, stressing that "there has been no change in the level of US-Turkey intelligence sharing regarding the PKK in northern Iraq."

The United States has been supplying Turkey, a NATO ally, with intelligence on rebel movements in northern Iraq, used particularly in Turkish air raids on PKK hideouts in the region.
That's it. Just keep pretending nothing has changed in Turkey. What could go wrong?

Now imagine the US giving the PKK $400 million as we did Hamas and you begin to grasp the enormity of the farce.

It's a damn double game Carl. The U.S completely turned a blind eye to the fact, Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia were aiding the insurgency in the Iraq war. For this our boys gave their lives. For Iraq, Israel got screwed over. Face it. Furthermore, the Republican party cared less knowing it because if a big deal was made of it there would be more trouble on the war front in the oval office.

Don't think for a moment the Kurds mean crap. They too paid a heavy price for the Iraq war and the U.S didn't bat an eye. A heavy price for decades long and the world cares less.

The House of Saud dictates it. Period.

So if the world has clearly forsaken the Kurds is it difficult to imagine how easy it is to forsake Jews?!

Never mind Turkey has a hostile Islamist regime.

What could go wrong indeed

NormanF...the screws turn tighter. The air is thick with ill winds blowing. I mean this time the unease of what is yet to come is almost untenable.
