I just saw this headline in my email a few moments ago:

BUSH PLEDGES TO HELP TURKEY FIGHT KURDS

President Bush pledged fresh help to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in
fighting Kurdish rebels, declaring them “an enemy of Turkey, a free Iraq and the
United States.”

Frankly I have to admit that there’s times when I’m not keeping up with what’s going on in the world but this is the first *I* have heard about the Kurds being our enemy.

As a matter of fact, I recall that when we went into Iraq to take care of Saddam, the Kurds were allies.  I think it had something to do with Saddam’s government killing them by the thousands… You may have heard about the reports of mass graves? (then again, you might not, funny how people manage to forget things like that) A bunch of them were Kurds.

Now things have turned around so much that President Bush, who a few years ago was talking about how they were among the peoples that were being oppressed by Saddam’s regime, is now calling them “an enemy of Turkey, a free Iraq and the United States.”??!?! WTF is this?!?!

Tell me there’s more to this than what it looks like on the surface!  Tell me that there’s some kind of legitimate thinking and reasons behind this, because it’s not looking so good right now.
