"This is Not Our War"

"This is Not Our War"

The latest (good) news from Ankara:

"This is not our war," the general said, reading from a prepared text at a local military base here. "This is not our mission."

"His announcement eases fears of a war-within-a-war on the northern front, though General Ozkok did say that he reserved the right to send additional forces into Iraq if the situation there spins out of control."

Needless to say, the situation in the north remains highly fluid but, at least today, developments there are quite helpful to Washington.
