The Enemy of Our Proxy Friend Becomes Our Enemy

Snarled thinking, but necessary for the cowboy diplomacy of the Bush Administration. Today Condi Rice, speaking on behalf of the United States, declared the Turkish PKK 'our enemies too.'

Irrational? Stupid? Of course, but so it the Bush 'diplomacy.' There Ms Rice is shaking hands with the Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, so that his enemy becomes our enemy. The PKK [Kurdistan Workers' Party ] is working to unite the Kurdish people throughout the area, but, because Turkey doesn't want their Kurds to merge with the Iraqi Kurds, the PKK is now our enemy.
