"Sooner or Later, Turkey Will Enter Iraq"

Here's something to worry about:
NICOSIA, Cyprus -- Intensified attacks by Kurdish separatists are putting increased pressure on the Turkish government to strike at rebel bases in Iraq.

Washington has warned Turkey to refrain from any cross-border action, but diplomats say Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has replied that Kurdish violence "has gone beyond the limits of tolerance."

The public and the influential Turkish military have been demanding a more effective action against the rebel Kurdistan Workers Party, known by its acronym, PKK. Some diplomats say that sooner or later, Turkey will enter Iraq in hot pursuit, whether Washington likes it or not.
Would anyone like to speculate as to what will happen after that? One thing's for sure - it won't be pretty. Still, it is difficult to say Turkey doesn't have the same right as Israel without exposing your double-standards for the whole world to see.
