So, the U.S. wants Turkey to do as they say and not as they do? 13:34, 18 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

I believe the point was that it is rather...hypocritical for Bush to, well, basically demand that Turkey do nothing to Iraq in terms of a military "incursion", when he saw it fit to actually invade the country 4 years ago, for the reason that "Iraq has WMDs and will use them against us" (well, as good as), which there was and is no proof for, apparently. -- 21:16, 18 October 2007 (UTC).Reply

Responding to the motion, U.S. President George W. Bush urged Turkey not to carry out an attack, edit

saying "[we are] making it clear to Turkey it is not in their interest to send more troops in... there is a better way to deal with the issue."
