    Bush Allies with Kurd Marxist Terror Group

    US tells PKK: Hit Iran and stay in Kandil

    The New Anatolian

    American officials have agreed to turn a blind eye to the PKK presence in the northern Iraqi Kurdish Kandil Mountains provided the Kurdish militants stir up trouble inside neighboring Iran. This is behind the American reluctance to move to "finish off" the PKK in Iraq.

    The Bush administration has been courting the PKK and the Iranian opposition groups based in Iraq and encouraging them to launch terrorist attacks and create disturbances in Iran.

    President George W. Bush addressed to the nation on 10 January in which he claimed: "Iran is providing material support for attacks on American troops." He identified Iran and Syria as America's main enemies in Iraq though the four-year-old guerrilla war against US-led forces is being conducted by the strongly anti-Iranian Sunni-Arab community.

    Turkey has been pushing the U.S. and the Baghdad government to act against the PKK in Iraq. Turkey recently presented a protest note to the Baghdad administration demanding immediate action against the PKK in northern Iraq.

    Kurdistan Regional Government chief Nechirvan Barzani told The New Anatolian recently that the Americans have never even raised the question of launching military operations against the PKK in the Kandil Mountains with his administration.

    American officials and intelligence officers are reportedly in contact with the PKK in the Iraqi Kurdish region.

    Intelligence sources in Erbil say the PEJAK, an offshoot of the PKK in Kandil, has been involved violent incidents in Iran which has disturbed Iranian officials.

    Iran has also complained about the presence of Iranian opposition guerrillas armed, trained and sheltered by the Americans in Iraq. Iranians have pushed their powerful Iraqi Shiite friends in the government to raise their objections and put an end to the activities of these guerrillas with no results.
