"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Rumors are swirling in Turkey. The Chief of Staff has had to deny a rumor that 5,000 Turkish tropps are in Norther Iraq and gurding an airport in the region under Patriotic Union of Kurdistan control.
Scan down for some wors by the Turcomen lader, Aydin Beyatli, in Northern Iraq. He is warning thet the 2.5 million of them in the country need to be a part of the post-Saddam negotiations or there may notbe peace. And he claims the US has already offered an invite to rhe next INC meeting. Echoing the INC he says that the Irai army (apart from the 400,000 Republican Guards) should not be the US target, implying that they are ready to bolt (on the other hand, let's not forget the hundreds of thousands of Russians who did not want to fight for Stalin but had the choice of getting shot by Germans or Bolsheviks).
"This operation should be the last U.S. operation" Beylati said.
