Attacking by F16 would not bring a real solution. The PKK as I think were prepared for that and were expecting them. Probably the attacks would destroy some of their shelters and kill some of them. But the real solution comes from a real dialogue and true talks. The true solution comes from the truel attempts to tried to solve it politically and not by F16. The participation of the media is also necessay to prpare the individuals for that.

Does the Turkish airforce obtain intelligence of the PKK bases and act accordingly or is it just intelligence from various sources and Turkey acts on that. I would recommend that the Turkish army to increase the number of snippers in these mountains and eliminate the terorist one by one. This would be more of a economical way of eliminating terorists. As it is know many foreign countries are assisting the PKK for their advantage in order to weaken Turkey. The war should be taken to the count
