Turkey threatens action "against Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq unless US-led forces intervene to stop them from crossing the border." While on the surface Turkey is offering to aid the fight against terrorism and the PKK (who we call terrorists), this could lead to problems in Iraq that will spill over into Turkey. The good news is that the Kurds wouldn't be involved in the Iraqi civil war anymore - they'd be fighting the Turks and breaking away to form their own country and annexing parts of Turkey.
What would W do then? Two of our friends (?) at each other's throat. Who would W back?
A mess getting messier every day.
