Turkey and the recent PKK fighting?
Quote:
Mr Erdogan said his government would not "give in to the spiral of violence" unleashed by the rebels.

"Our fight will continue until the terrorist organisation has been annihilated," he said.

Turkey seems to be flexing its muscles recently with cross border raids on the PKK inside Iraq. Is this in response to PKK attacks or an effort to appease the military?
