Good for the goose

Professor Juan Cole is reporting that the Prime Minister of Turkey is warning that Turkey will invade Iraq if they want to -- and who is the USA to say they mustn't?

From Reuters:

"We have a 350 km border with Iraq. We have historic relations ... the United States is 10,000 km away from Iraq, and yet is it not intervening in Iraq's internal affairs?" he said.

Isn't that a fine how-do-you-do? Turkey, America's ally, threatening to invade Iraq, America's occupied territory, because the US won't take action against Kurdish terrorists. I can't wait for President Junior to explain to the world why the USA is allowed preemptive self-defence but Turkey isn't.
