Go. Read. Take your time. Concentrate especially on this closing excerpt:
The northern Kurdish regions of Iraq have consistently been more peaceful than the rest of Iraq, so this "handover" was purely symbolic and nothing else but, hey, let's not let the facts get in the way of some mindless cheerleading.
Besides, it's not clear how long things are going to stay quite that peaceful:
Turkish troops mass at Iraq border for possible strike
From south and north, Iraq's Kurdish region felt pressure from two sides, as saboteurs bombed a vital bridge link to Baghdad, and Turkish troops across the border massed for a possible strike.
And if things go downhill in a hurry, I'll do my best to keep you properly informed since, God knows, you won't hear any of the bad news from Kate or her yapping minions, will you?
Why, yes ... now that you mention it, I am a fucking genius:
Several thousand Turkish troops crossed into northern Iraq early Wednesday to chase Kurdish guerrillas who attack Turkey from bases there, two Turkish security officials said. Turkey's foreign minister denied its troops had entered Iraq.
Your move, Kate.
