"Kurdish leaders have inserted more than 10,000 of their militia members into Iraqi army divisions in northern Iraq to lay the groundwork to swarm south, seize the oil-rich city of Kirkuk and possibly half of Mosul, Iraq's third-largest city, and secure the borders of an independent Kurdistan."
The Iraqi army denied the story (and wanted to know the names of all the reporter's sources!). The Turks have already threatened to fight over this, fearing, correctly, that the creation of Kurdistan in Iraq will inevitably lead to its joining with Turkish Kurdistan and the break-up of Turkey (a rather serious outcome!). The Americans are apparently helpless to influence the Kurds, as the Kurds are pals with Sharon and Sharon tells the Americans what to do. In any event, the destruction of Iraq is the main thrust of the Yinon-inspired Isrealamerican plan for Iraq, and the first phase is to break off Kurdistan, leading to the planned civil war between Sunnis and Shi'ites (who have already been prepped by the American occupation, the actions of agents provocateurs, and the election results guaranteed by the American-installed election system). What could the Americans possibly be offering Turkey to keep Turkey out of the picture? Having Turkey enter a war over Kurdistan would be an excellent way for American planners to keep Turkey out of the EU.
