#1 I think it is a good start, if the US expects cooperation of other nations to fight the Al Qaeda terrorists she cannot ignore the PKK terrorists. Utterances made by some such as the PKK didn't harm Americans so we should leave them is nonsense, because we can say the same Al Qaeda did not attack us either. If there is a serious war on terror, there should be no difference and all the terrorist have to be eradicated.

#2 If there WERE any delays in coming to this agreement (I don't see Turkey NOT talking about this earlier), then it was because we WERE talking with OUR Kurds. Shows that we're getting a clue about the culture, since we want to make sure that we reward the good Kurds and kill the bad Kurds, and don't want them adhering to some stupid motto like "The Kurds, right or wrong!", or "If he's a Kurd, then I support him, no matter what the idiot does." A bad attitude to take, no matter if its Kurds, Muslims, or Americans doing the talking.

If you're good, we'll work with you. If you're bad, you're history. A good philosophy in principle, but I admit the US sometimes stinks on executing it.

#3 Murat,

If the PKK type of militants are neutralized in Iraq and Turkey, what do you expect the result would be economically and polically, for are and for Khurds in particular?
