More Kurds killed in Turkey airstrikes

The Turkish military launched airstrikes on Kurdish rebel positions in southeastern Turkey on Friday evening, killing 19 people, the military said.

The strikes followed a rebel attack on a military outpost in Hakkari province in which two Turkish soldiers were killed, according to the military’s Web site. Turkey has been staging military attacks against rebels with the PKK, or Kurdistan Workers’ Party, in Turkey and in northern Iraq. The PKK is a leftist insurgent group that formed in 1984 to fight for an independent Kurdish homeland in southeast Turkey.

These people ask nothing more than what Kosovo people asked and the Americans were so ready to recognize. If Kosovo people have a right for independence then Kurds have the history and the millions of people to support them as well.
