Turkey club

As many had predicted, Turkey is now threatening to join the fray in Iraq and turn the otherwise moderately under control, semi-autonomous Kurdish region of Iraq into a roiling cauldron of war and death.
The head of Turkey's powerful military General Staff called for a military operation in northern Iraq to quash Turkish Kurdish rebels hiding there.

"From the military point of view, a (military) operation in northern Iraq must be made," General Yasar Buyukanit told a rare news conference, adding that a political decision from the government was first required to authorise such a step.
Well, if the Turkish government is anything like the US government has been in the five years, that shouldn't be too much of a problem.
