Re: Turkey begins operations in northern Iraq to hunt down PKK militants: Preside...

I thought Iraq military had already removed a large portion of Kurdish militants from oil rich parts of Northern Iraq. I don't know how much patience Iraq will have with Turkey's military crossing their borders. Erdogan is giving off this imperialist vibe that he will use anything to justify expansion. Iraq just come off a hard fought battle with ISIS, and are in the process of trying to solidify the government. If Iraq objects to Trukey crossing their border, it wouldn't be long before Erdogan accuses the Iraq government of indirectly aiding PKK activity and terror planning in N Iraq to be carried out in Turkey. This would further justify Erdogan ambitions. I get that since Assad has his hands full and is basically human rights violator at this point, it made no sense for Turkey to return any land taken from driving out kurdish militants, but still, it has to raise some red flags for Iraq (even though Iraq is backed by US) that Erdogan might be tempted to do the same in N Iraq if the military is allowed to conduct operations there. It seems like any attack on PKK terrorists in N. Iraq is really no different than going to war against N Iraq(Kurdistan). If Kurdistan is harboring the PKK, than how can Erdogan make any distinctions between the entire area of Kurdistan, and the PKK?
