new war in Iraq

Turkey started attacks on North Iraq where separatist Kurdish groups exist, Do you think that Turkey has an legitimate right to intervene the state?

As we all know under the UN Charter Article 51 all member states of UNO have inherent right for self-defense! With time, prescriptions of UN draft have become an international customary law and only by referring to it Turkey gains a legitimacy to enter into IRAQ.

Well Turkey has the right to defend itself from invaders and terrorist groups,which the Kurdish groups have been labelled. But in doing os,it risks being entrenched in a long drawn out war that is sure to involve not just these groups,but Al-Qaeda Maybe it's what it wants. It's really difficult to predict what the outcome would be like because if the Kurdish rebels join hands with al-qaeda ,would there be any end to the cycle of violence in Iraq??

I think that it is nothing to do with Al qaeda and other groups. Kurdish terrorists are trained by Israel and US. US is supporting with troops and other logisitic help. There are many supporters in Europe origin of Kurds. Turkey is entrance is certain, I wonder what will be the relation between US and Turkey which are close alliance, in the future?
