Turkey bombs suspected Kurdish rebel targets in Iraq

this war of oppression between the Turkish and the Kurdish has been going since the 80's

PPK is a terrorist organisation and as we have all heard one man's terroristis another's freedom fighter.
I'm sure its just what the US needs a war going on around their own war. everyone will shoot and blow up everyone.
