Oh Crap!

Turkish PM clears way for Iraq assault

The Turkish prime minister gave the go-ahead today for a possible military operation into northern Iraq after a spate of deadly attacks on soldiers and civilians by separatist Kurdish guerrillas.

A Turkish incursion is fiercely opposed by Washington since it would immensely complicate the US campaign in Iraq and upset the only stable part of Iraq: the Kurdish-controlled north.

Mr Erdogan is known to think little of the invasion option, making the pragmatic calculation that it would probably fail.
Gee, I wonder where he got that idea from? Invading Iraq worked out so well for us.

Seriously though, this is bad. Even for Iraq, this is bad. This will take delicate diplomacy to keep it from spiraling out of control...

Oh crap.
