Turkish Troops Enter Northern Iraq
Source: Al Jazeera

Turkey has sent hundreds of troops into northern Iraq to chase fighters from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in an operation likely to increase tensions within the region.

The soldiers killed four fighters escaping after a failed attack on a Turkish unit near the border, Turkey's military said.


The army did not say when their troops would withdraw, saying the soldiers were remaining in northern Iraq, supported by Turkish warplanes.

The Kurdistan regional goverment in northern Iraq has condemned similar cross-border attacks in the past, saying they violate Iraq's sovereignty.

2. Agreed!
This screed is completely out of character for me,but here goes.
I think it is time to pull ALL of our troops out of the ME,Korea,and any other country that is having either civil unrest or conflict.The US is not or will never be again the "peacekeeper" of the world!
The way I feel now,close all military action,get out,and let them have at it!
If I pissed some people off,TO DAMN BAD. I served my time in HELL!
