Turkey to send troops to Iraq
Turkey has said it will send troops into northern Iraq, despite opposition from the US.
The BBC correspondent in Turkey says there are reports that Turkish troops will cross the border within a few hours.
Turkey already has several thousand troops a small distance into Iraq, but Iraqi Kurds oppose their presence, saying they threaten Iraq's territorial integrity.
Turkey wants to prevent the Kurds from forming a separate state.
US Secretary of State Colin Powell had said: "At the moment we do not see any need for any Turkish incursions into northern Iraq."
Amazing. Will the U.S. go to war with Turkey? I have been watching the BBC and there is talk about Turkey 'annexing' Northern Iraq. Takes nerve for Turkey to do this in the face of the American Military. Unbelievable development. You do have to feel sorry for the Kurds.
I guess this answers the question I asked a few days ago. Who is going to crush the Kurds of Iraq?
