Rice: Kurdish rebels are 'common threat'

Turkey represents an absolutely indispensable military base of operations in the region (including of course Iraq and Afghanistan).

The thorny diplomatic crack up with the Armenian genocide deal surely didn't help matters.

There's Condi again. Representing US military and geopolitical interests in yet another tinderbox.

ANKARA, Turkey - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice assured Turkish officials Friday that Kurdish rebels based in northern Iraq were a "common threat" and that the United States would help Ankara in its fight against them.

Speaking after meeting with both Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Ali Babacan, Rice said she had emphasized that the United States is "committed to redoubling its efforts" to help Turkey in its struggle against the rebel fighters.
