Turkey demonstrating restraint in dealing with attacks

Turkey demonstrated the type of restraint in its dealings with the PKK that it has demanded from Israel in dealing with the Palestinians.
From today’s Christian Science Monitor:

PKK attacks: Turkey’s leader vows to ‘annihilate’ Kurdish rebels
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey will not stop until the PKK is “annihilated” after the Kurdish rebel group killed 12 Turkish soldiers over the weekend.
[…] The AP reports that they killed one Iraqi Kurdish girl and wounded two others. After those strikes, the PKK threatened to expand its reach, saying it would “take our operations to all Turkish cities” if the governmet does not stop its attacks, reports Agence France-Presse.
“Turkey wants to take us towards war,” the group’s spokesman, Ahmed Denis, told AFP. “She is not sincere in dealing with the Kurdish issue and doesn’t want to deal with this issue peacefully.”

Just another day in the Middle East.
