Turkey Invades Iraq

While MSM is engaged with all things Imus, Rense continues to be an excellent source of informative and pertinent news. Today they posted a highly important factoid that Turkey just crossed their border with Iraq and is engaging Kurdish forces. For weeks now Turkey has been seething about america's biggest ally in the region, the Kurds, and have threatened all out war. They're clearing mines and interdicting supply routes in what may be a significant invasion what with it's 200,000 troops massed on the border.

"The Turkish army crossed 20 kilometers into Iraq in an effort to destroy camps located to the east of Zaho. Elsewhere in northern Iraq security forces went 30 to 40 kilometers in, up to the rural areas of the Haftanin, Sinaht and Pirbela provinces."

This is pretty damn important stuff, considering that the US is pouring it's lifeblood and treasure into Dune, so I decided to graze the MSM swamp to see how it's being covered.

Not a peep about it on CNN, top result in a 'Turkey' site search netted me Merriam's Turkey Hunting, NE Washington.

ABC site search - Student in Hedge Fund Scam Gets 3 1/2 Years, may get deported to Turkey.

At BBC not a word about a cross border incursion but you can get Not a feathered friend:
"An East Riding resident has complained that her garden is being ruined by a turkey."

MSNBC - now we're getting somewhere - Turkey warns Iraq's Kurds over threat - yet it's three days old. Imus!

At CBS, something about an aborted possible Turkish jetliner hijack.

I saw this yesterday and was astonished to hear nothing on MSM. Nothing. Maybe * is letting Turkey do the jihad thing against the "terrorists" in the north. Maybe Turkey has decided that the US is in no position to do anything anyway so what the heck. It is something that seems of great importance to me but I guess that to the msm it is just nothing.

This actually has been building towards all out war for months. Turkey and the Kurds have been farting in each others' direction and making threats about when the snow melts so the passes open up for movement. Turkey does not want to see an increasingly independent and oil wealthy Kurdistan. The Kurds are the most friendly faction in Iraq and of course Turkey is a NATO partner. The US is helpless and wants complete silence about this embarassing development.
