  •  True, but the attack also says to the US (0+ / 0-)

    that Turkey doesn't believe that America's efforts to hold Iraq together with Duct Tape are working too well.  That's really my point.  The surge was meant to give the Iraqi Politicians time to fix their shit so that the country doesn't come appart...  Well Turkey seems to not believe that the country is holding together.. and since, as you say, they don't want to see an autonomous Kurdistan (becase it could incite more Kurdish seperist violence inside Turkey) - they are using the RKK incursions as an excuse to make a statement to Iraq and the US as well as the Kurds in Turkey.

    Flowers Bloom for my Ex - though Honeybees are pretty cool too.
