Turkey 'bombs PKK Iraq targets'

With the resent news about how much the war in Iraq is costing the United States I find the following report very interesting.

From the BBC
Turkey 'bombs PKK Iraq targets'

Turkish military helicopters have bombed suspected Kurdish rebel positions in northern Iraq, Iraqi officials have said.

Several empty villages and an abandoned police post were hit without causing casualties, the officials said.

The strikes came as Ankara said four Turkish soldiers were killed in a clash with Kurdish rebels in Sirnak province.

Turkey has threatened large-scale attacks into Iraq to prevent Kurdish rebels launching attacks into Turkey.

Restraint urged

Kurdish rebels have killed at least 40 Turkish soldiers and civilians in the past month.

Dozens of rebels have also been killed over the same period, Turkey's military says, during which the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has stepped up its attacks.

Here is the link to the rest of the report:

If this conflict increases what does this mean for the U.S.

What would this mean for the stability of Iraq?
