Subject: War on terrorism is a lie.
Pars    10/19/2005 6:28:06 PM
After the 2nd Gulf War, Talabani faction in North Iraq; supported and equiped PKK terrorist organisation. Now Talabani being the president of Iraq is in a much better position to support them. USA as today is indirectly supporting a terorist organisation that attacks one of his allies (Turkey). As it seems, war on terorism is a war only against the terorists who attacks USA.

Hmmm... The last i heard (on this website) the U.S. was cracking down on the PKK, due to their foolish turkish border excursion. That didn't help the kurds any and only ticked off the U.S. administration and drew their attention toward them (PKK).

The US indirectly supporting a terorist organization? That I'll buy, but Turkey an ally? Let's not get fanciful.

I think the Turkish PKK problem is a complex situation for morality. Do you support one side or the other when BOTH ARE IN THE WRONG. The Turkish have brutally suppressed the Kurds, then again everyone brutally suppresses the Kurds. On the other hand the Kurds have the PKK who are terrorists. But then again the Turks were little better than terrorists in their treatment of Kurds. Let's not even go into their Genocidal History. So who do you support? Hitler or Stalin? Or do you do as we have been doing. Which is support neither of them and just take care of our own problems. If PKK make mistakes and draw our attention in Iraq they will not like how we treat them. But seeing as how the Turks couldn't catch 2000 PKK with 40,000 troops, well I think chasing the PKK is a wasteful extravagance when it is obvious the PKK does not speak for the majority of the Kurds. Not our problem. Turkey made its own bed, and we are not gonna sleep in it.
