BAGHDAD, IRAQ (1:15 P.M.) – The Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, stated on Tuesday afternoon that Ankara will launch a ground operation in Iraq if they perceive a threat to their national security.

The Turkish Foreign Minister’s comments come on the 9th day of the Iraqi Army’s offensive to expel the Islamic State from Mosul; this assault does not include the Turkish Armed Forces.

The governments in Ankara and Baghdad have been involved in a war of words these past few weeks as a result of the Turkish President’s refusal to remove his forces from northern Iraq.

Maybe a safe corridor to Turkey should be considered for Daesh and let Erdogan have fun with those from he bought blood-oil. All others Turkey border shall be blockaded before doing so…
More seriously : it’s high time to open the files all intel agencies got about Turkey, KSA and Qatar… The shit they are doing must stop.
A little idea of what the Turkish loonie has in mind :
