Turked

I know that this story doesn't arise to the level of some kind of Pumpkinhead hypothetical, but Turkey has invaded northern Iraq. And now, they are refusing to give a timeline on withdrawal (sound familiar):

Ankara (dpa) - Turkey's military operation in northern Iraq against Kurdish separatists could finish in as short a time as one day or take up to year, Turkish Chief of General Staff Yasar Buyukyanit said on Thursday.
The Turks have obviously attended the George Bush school of diplomacy. And what's really rich is that the U.S. is trying to pressure the Turks to leave.
