A former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney is briefing lawmakers on Pentagon plans for secret military intervention in Turkey, Robert Novak reported Monday.
The Bush administration is considering covert military activity by U.S. Special Forces to help Turkish troops quash Kurdish guerilla fighters, who are believed to be using northern Iraq as safe-haven, according to the syndicated columnist.

I thought the US armed the Kurds and refused Turkey to enter Iraq to attack the Kurds. And now they're supposed to help Turkey against the Kurds!? Are they with them or are they against them?

Does GW even bother to pay attention to reality? It seems that once he decides to do something, regardless of how stupid it might be, he does it. He is of course "The Decider".
What sense would it make to go into Turkey when we are already up to our neck in Iraq, Afghanistan, and soon to be Iran, Pakistan and most recently Turkey.
I personally think that he is trying to entrench us in every possible conflict before he departs one of the most truely corrupt presidencies to date. Just to leave our new Commander in Chief to clean us his 8 year mess
It looks like he is setting us up for a much bigger, all encompassing conflict in the Middle East which can only lead to one thing...The Draft.
Will someone please submit the articles of impeachment before he and his buddy turn this great country into a 3rd World Nation?

The 350-strong commando unit was deployed in the Sere Seve region of northern Iraq and is now in control of several strategic points ~
~ the commando unit's move across the border came following intense shelling of the border area by Turkish forces. The report said the move appeared to be a first step in a cross-border operation into Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq by Turkish forces.
Last week, analysts and officials said plans to launch a joint Turkish-US operation against the PKK camps in northern Iraq had collapsed after they were leaked to the press by certain senators that have reservations about such a move.
