Terrorist gang kills 15 soldiers as Turkey mulls new measures

Turkish officials Monday pondered fresh measures to tackle the separatist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)
gang after recent terrorist attacks killed 15 soldiers, stepping up pressure for tougher government action.
Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Çicek said after a cabinet meeting that Ankara was weighing “all possible measures” against the PKK, including a cross-border operation into neighboring northern Iraq, where the terrorists have long taken refuge despite repeated Turkish warnings.
So, once again the officially designated (by the USA, UK, EU and others), Kurdish terrorist organisation operating (apparently with impunity) out of Iraq, has murdered (13) more young Turkish troops.
So, what to do?
What to do indeed. Especially when those self same terrorists are - just like Turkey - America's 'friends'. And yes, you read that right - America is this bunch of bloody terrorists' friend -- not foe.
Which begs several serious questions.
Does the United States honestly think that the Turkish people should simply STFU and suffer in silence, some more?
That they should swallow some more of the shit they've been (serially), served in the form of broken promise after broken promise by their (alleged) best buddy - good ole Christian and supposedly God fearing, America?
That they should bite a bit harder on the bloody bullet? Refrain from rocking the BushCo boat? Get over it? Move on? Carry on cowering? Continue to kow-tow? Settle for the the same old, same old, succumb, submit, surrender, suck up and shut up US dictum - or else?
With friends like this US maladministration's crooked cabal crew's (close to capsizing), 'ship of
We wonder. Does America really believe that Turkey's (powerful and popular), group of grandee generals are genuinely uber-gullible? Gormless? Goofs? Goons? Gonzos?
That all Turkish politicians (to a man), are complete prize plonkers? Prats? Morons? Idiots? Imbeciles? Dimwits? Dunces? And so on?
That the regular Turk in the street is as stupid as so many of it's own bewildered & befuddled, Bible-belt, good-book-thumping buffoons, backward back-woods-men and stupefyingly silly, assorted hicks and hill-billies?
And/or that the proud, tried & tested (time after time), Turkish nation's people's patience is limitless?
If so, it certainly seems to us that in this instance the US is super-sadly mistaken.
For now though, we'd won't say any more re; our personal opinions on this score, since we're sure we've already cussed, cursed and sworn sufficiently -- recently at any rate.
So read for yourself one of today's relevant reports from Turkey's mainstream (online) media.
Then perhaps you'd like to tell us how you see it.
And maybe what, in your own opinion, should happen next.
