Turkey bombs Iraq

Turkey's elections seem to be propelling the nation onto a collision course with the US over Iraqi Kurdistan.
Turkey has massed troops on the Iraqi border, and threatened to move into northern Iraq unless Iraq and the United States crack down on the PKK, listed by Washington as a terrorist organization.

Iraq complained Wednesday that Turkish artillery and warplanes bombarded areas of northern Iraq, and called on Turkey to stop military operations and enter dialogue. |Turkish prime minister warns of Iraq incursion after elections - International Herald Tribune|
Maybe the Bush administration will be able to pull off the militarist's hat trick and be at war in Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey all at once.

UPDATE: Add Pakistan to the list of places Dubya is considering invading.

Back in March I blogged about the prospect of a Turkish invasion of Iraq.
