Turkish press rages at Kurds and US

Turkish press rages at Kurds and US“The Turkish press is furious about the entry of Kurdish troops into the cities of Kirkuk in northern Iraq [...] The mass-selling newspaper Hurriyet also complains that US forces should have stopped the Kurds from entering Kirkuk.”

US Forces? Are they saying it would be nice if there was a US infantry division in Northern Iraq to quell this disturbance, rather than the spotty forces we’ve been able to airlift there? Gosh, why didn’t we put a division up there in the north? Why, they could have come right out of Turkey…

....oops. I forgot. So did the Turkish media, apparently.
