  1. The Arab League is late in telling Turkey to leave as Turkey already had begun to withdraw its forces from Iraq.

  2. Turkish troops have been training Kurdish soldiers in Iraq for 3 years. Why hasn’t Iraq Government objected to activities of Turkish troops in Iraq for 3 years? and Why did Iraq Government start to object to presence of Turkish troops after shooting down of Russian warplane?
