#1 This is pretty dicey, but if we can leave nothern Iraq with lasting stability, we will have done a good thing.

#2 I'd guess that most of those incorporated are serving as translators and only carry weapons for self defense. Anybody know?

#3 Turkish special operations forces are not exactly translators. Shortly described they are anti-terror/guerrilla units, operating with similar guerrilla tactics. Their objective is mainly tracing guerrilla groups in mountainous areas and signalling their GPS coordinates to helicopter squads who bomb the guerrillas to Walhalla.

#4 Turkish has nothing in common with Arabic (If my memory is good Turkish is member of the Turko-Mongol group, Arabic is semitic) or with Kurdish (Arian group). Of course Turkey can provide translators
from her Kurdish minority... provides she thinks they are loyal.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
