"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

Is Turkey backing off?

The chief of the Turkish Army says Ankara will send troops into northern Iraq but only if Turkish troops already there are unable to handle a possible influx of refugees or threats to stability.

General Hilmi Ozkok, the chief of staff of the Turkish armed forces, said today in the southeastern Turkish city of Diyarbakir that any Turkish deployment will be "coordinated" with the United States. "However, given that our strategic American partner is still fighting in the region, we would coordinate our actions with the United States, and all necessary steps would be taken to prevent misunderstandings," Ozkok said.

Let's hope so.
