Turkish military ready to cross into Iraq, general says

Turkey's top general said Thursday his army - which has been massing troops on the border with Iraq - was prepared to attack separatist Kurdish guerrillas in a cross-border offensive and accused Turkey's allies of supporting the rebels.


Gen. Yasar Buyukanit said the military was ready and awaiting government orders for an incursion, putting pressure on the government to support an offensive that risks straining ties with the United States and sparking tensions with Iraqi Kurds. (AP)
