"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you can bet it was planned that way."
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt.

In keeping with the theme of the last couple of posts here at Rastî, you may want to take a look at DozaMe's recent post about joint Turkish-Iranian military operations in South Kurdistan.

DozaMe outlines the plan and its aims, and both are consistent with the recent conduct of operations by the two oppressor regimes.

DozaMe quotes PKK sources and, at the moment, I'm willing to bet the information was obtained through PKK's intelligence network, the same network that acquired information on the train that was carrying Iranian arms through Turkey to Syria. That was the intelligence that HPG used to derail the train at the end of May.

More on that derailing here, here, here, and here.

But don't hold your breath waiting to see news of joint Turkish-Iranian military violations of Iraqi territorial sovereignty in the Western (particularly American) media. Don't hold your breath waiting for them to report about Iranian katyusha rockets being used against Kurdish civilians in South Kurdistan/Iraq. Don't hold your breath waiting for them to report the new State of Emergency in Turkish-occupied Kurdistan. They're too busy trying to propagandize a justification for a war with Iran to notice an Iranian army incursion 5 kilometers deep into Iraqi territory.

Besides, it wouldn't look too good that America's best ally in the region, and NATO's second largest army, is a long-time bed partner with a member of the Axis of Evil.
