Turkey is getting ready to invade Iraq in order to attack Kurdish freedom fighters. This is an astounding development in that Turkey is a U.S. ally and a member of NATO, and Iraq has been under U.S. military occupation for more than four years.
The Bush regime, like the Iraqi government, has expressed opposition to an incursion by Turkish forces. We'll see how persuasive Bush is. The popular myth of our age is that, by virtue of being the world's only superpower, the United States is uniquely able to keep peace, especially in regions under its control. But if Turkey attacks the Kurds — the same people Bush likes to say he freed from Saddam's dictatorship — we'll see that, far from being a force for peace and stability, the United States is acting in a way that leads to more conflict.
