"CIZRE, Turkey - Supported by air power, Turkish troops crossed into northern Iraq on Friday in their first major ground incursion against Kurdish rebel bases in nearly a decade. But Turkey sought to avoid confrontation with U.S.-backed Iraq, saying the guerrillas were its only target.
The offensive, which started late Thursday after aircraft and artillery blasted suspected rebel targets, marked a dramatic escalation in Turkey's fight with the PKK rebel group even though Turkish officials described the operation as limited.
A military officer of the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq said on condition of anonymity that several hundred Turkish soldiers had crossed the border. The coalition has satellites as well as drones and other surveillance aircraft at its disposal.
Sky-Turk television said about 2,000 Turkish soldiers were in Iraq, operating against rebel camps about two miles in from the border. NTV television said a total of 10,000 soldiers were inside Iraq in an operation that had extended six miles past the frontier. The activity was reportedly occurring about 60 miles east of Cizre, a major town near the border with Iraq.
It was not possible to independently confirm the size or scope of the attack on the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, which is considered a terrorist group by the United States and European Union. CNN-Turk television, citing Turkish security officials, said the operation could last two weeks."
Turkey has also more than 100.000 soldiers set in the inside part of the border with Iraq, and currently, the Army is just fighting the monkey pkk terrorists. I'm praying Tengri so as to fight the local jewish-kurdish "peshmerge" guerillas. If such a thing happens, we'd be easily able to occupy Northern Iraq and prevent these sub-human kurds from:
1) assimilating, killing, deporting our Turkmen bloodbrothers to get the control of KIRKUK, which is historically Turk and full of Oil...
2) founding kurdistan...
Yankees couldn't say anything if we hit each other. It's about a historical opportunity to have finished with the Iraqi problem for us.
Last news about loses in both sides:
Turkey: we've lost 5 soldiers. They've flown towards the Sky, towards the Tengri Mountains...
kurds: we've killed 44 monkeys.
