The Iraqi governing council appears to be publically against any deployment of Turkish troops in the country, with the Kurds being the angriest (for obvious resons).

Should we go ahead and do it anyway as it would be a great aid to US forces possibly eliminating the need to call up more reserves and guard troops?

This is ridiculous, considering the history of many sects of the Iraqis and the Turkies.

Could they bring any one any more worse than the Turks are considered?

Wrong country, but that's pretty surreal.
the possibility that Serbian troops, who battled Muslims in Bosnia and in Kosovo in the Balkan wars of the 1990's, could be involved in combat operations against Muslims and in antiterrorist operations against members and supporters of Al Qaeda might be seen by both Muslims and non-Muslims as undesirable.
I'll say.

Serbia and Monetnegro have to be brought back into the international community at some point. Ostracizing nations for extended periods after the conflict is over has proven to be an unwise policy.

Of course, but would we have considered asking Germans to pull security duty in Israel in 1950? I don't think so.

Actually the Germans were pumping weapons and money into Israel at that time.

Well the 'and will,' perhaps, was poorly worded and should have been left out. I just meant that not much seems unlikely anymore.

Sorry if that was unintentionally unclear/misleading,

Really? Got a link or something?

Nevertheless, supply/aid is one thing; armed troops is another. Surely you see my point here.

EDIT: Found my own. Reparations is a little different than "economic aid".
