Turks plan long-term stay in Northern Iraq

They are calling it IraqWar II.

According to Turkish military figures cited in Le Monde, the Turks plan to completely control Iraq's northern frontier, thus creating a buffer zone. Turkish forces next plan an assault on Mt. Qandil. There are even suggestions that the Turks plan on "recapturing" Mosul and Kirkuk.
