An Eye for an eye makes the whole world blind

A motion has been passed by the Turkey’s parliament to authorise the Turkish army to officially enter Iraq.
This threatens a major escalation of the conflict in the region. It creates the risk of a sharpened civil war in Northern Iraq. An attack – invasion will bring misery and death to hundred of thousands of people.
Using the excuse of a recent landmine attack in which 13 Turkish soldiers died, the Turkish army has already started massive military operations in South East Turkey and there are reports that civilian villages in Northern Iraq have been hit.
However, the past 18 months have seen a succession of provocations by Turkey’s “deep state” to prepare the ground for such an attack. Many civilians, mostly Kurds, and many children have died in these incidents, which are blamed on the PKK. In one famous case, members of the security forces were caught red-handed planting bombs.
The recent election to the Turkish parliament of 20 independent Kurdish MPs offered hope of a peaceful political solution to the Kurdish problem in Turkey. An attack on Iraq will sink this hope and mean death and destruction for the Kurdish people of Turkey as well.
A Turkish incursion will be a further step down the road to chaos and destruction created by Bush and Blair’s invasion of Iraq.
We call on the anti-war movement all over the world to stand out against this very dangerous escalation of the war in Iraq.
No to a Turkish invasion of Iraq! All troops out of Iraq!
