Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Obviously on Turkey's side, as Iraqi Kurdistan is not a NATO member as of this writing. Turkey will be very careful not to initiate the hostilities, as that might give the rest of NATO an 'out': a mutual defence agreement might not extend to war of aggression.
