    Turkey now has a pretext to attack the kurds in Syria and Iraq

    The main problem many have with terror groups like PKK and PJAK is that they mostly ambush and attack conscripts, low level civil servants or plain civilians.

    Seriously, what great crime a conscript committed to warrant his death on your way for “freedom”?

      The truth these groups is they have always been attacking the weaker civilians, govt workers and other Kurds and training exercises, these are the actions of terrorists and cowards. They think they can win by the same actions which has earned their hatred towards them. Just doesn’t work even the US is starting to not look upon them sympathetically anymore.
