From the faculty at Salahaddin University in Kurdistan: "We as academic staff for the region's biggest Universities attended by different nations including Kurds, Turkman, Assyrians, Chaldeans and Arabs condemn this terrible threat towards our achievements and legitimate rights and express our complete refusal to any Turkish military intervention into the region's territory and affairs."

Regarding the Turks, it seems that diplomatic clumsiness by Cheney contributed to the situation. This reinforces Marshall's point about the administration's diplomatic incompetence, IMO.

Now that we've publicly tried to sell them out, I wonder how friendly the Kurds will be.
