'Sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey approves mandate for military action in Iraq, Syria. (Bugun).
A parliamentary mandate approving cross-border military operations in Iraq and Syria has been approved by Turkey’s interim Justice and Development Party (AK Party) cabinet and has been sent to the parliamentary speaker for an assembly vote.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs had sent the draft bill to acting Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu on Thursday. The bill was approved during Friday’s cabinet meeting and signed by Davutoğlu before being sent to Parliament Speaker İsmet Yılmaz.
A similar bill passed in October last year specifically mentioned the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
This year’s bill only mentions the outlawed Kurdish group, “The risks and threats against our national security keep growing. The PKK continues to operate in north Iraq. We have observed a growth in the terrorist organization’s activity in Syria and Iraq. Hmmmm......So NATO will help committing a Kurdish Genocide?
