Kurd Pro Quo


If this BBC report is correct, what has long looked like an almost inevitable side-effect of U.S. operations in Iraq will soon come to pass. U.S. troops will engage Kurdish rebels on behalf of Turkey. Turkey, it follows, would then be more likely to commit its troops for peace-keeping duties elsewhere in Iraq.

Doesn't seem like much of a deal for the U.S., but who said remaking a region was easy?
