Turkish Foreign Minister Wants US Action Against Kurdish Rebels

We're a little busy right now. Call back later.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan said Friday that Turkey wants the United States to stop talking and start taking action to help end cross-border attacks by Kurdish guerrillas in Iraq.

Is it me or do Muslims have a militant group for every fucking country. Is there a country out there that Muslims don't want to act aggressively towards?

"We need to work on actually making things happen," Babacan said at a news conference with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in Ankara. "This is where the words end and action needs to start."

Look, a country telling the US it needs to stop with the diplomacy and start with the action. That's what got us in trouble in the first place.

Rice stopped in the Turkish capital for emergency meetings with senior Turkish officials, including Babacan, Prime Minister Recip Tayyip Erdogan and President Abdullah Gul, ahead of an Iraq conference with regional foreign ministers Saturday in Istanbul.

"I was in the neighborhood..."

Rice and Babacan described their meeting as cordial and indicated that discussions would continue when Erdogan meets with President Bush in Washington on Monday. But Turkey made clear that it is losing patience with what it sees as insufficient efforts by the United States and Iraq to eliminate attacks by the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Oh get in fucking line. Everyone's losing patience with our administration and you're just going to have to wait your turn.
