  1. Now Turkey will want revenge and will retaliate strongly where Turkey will kill at least the same number of Kurds. I do not support the Turks but I do know that Turkey is the stronger military force and if the Kurds keep attacking Turkey then Turkey will seriously consider invading the area where the Kurdish militants are coming from to put a stop to the attacks. Also Turkey will consider not giving any support to the other Kurdish groups due to what the PKK is doing to Turkey.
