Turkey’s parliament voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to extend by one year its authorization of military operations against Kurdish separatists in northern Iraq, keeping the door open to future strikes in the region.Well!!!
The approval, by a vote of 497 to 18, had been largely expected, and came amid a flurry of attacks in the country’s largely Kurdish southeast. Seventeen Turkish soldiers were killed in an attack on a border post late last week, and Turkey responded with several days of air strikes in Iraqi territory. A fresh attack on Wednesday killed five police officers and wounded 19 others outside the southeastern city of Diyarbakir.

That should keep iRaq from sending any more iRanian Flying Saucers to attack our White Christian America!!!
All Hail Great Leader!!! For Great Leader is Great!!!
