the turks are insistent on going into northern iraq, despite a us official describing it as a “big mistake“. i told you they’d be trouble. first the supposed allies fucked us over by not letting us stage or even have fly-over rights. now, they are going to let us fly over (unless they change their mind again), but are going to cause a lot of havoc with our friends the kurds. they say it’s for “humanitarian and refugee” reasons. is that turkish for “kill kurds”? this could get really hairy because of those bastards. if we sell the kurds out, i may join the protestors.
