    The oringinal strategy was a 2 pronged attack from North & South. The northern front would invade the Sunni heartland, round up the Sunni Fedayeen guerillas and surround Baghdad. Instead, the initial invasion was from the South. By the time the US took Baghdad, the Fedayeen disappeared with thousands of tons of Baathist munitions. 4,000 Americans were killed in the Sunni insurgency. The US military considered Turkish our best friend until this. Add to that, Turkish incursion into Iraq during the height of the war, alienating our allies in Iraq and Turkey lost a good friend in the US military. Now, arms sales in Turkey are at the mercy of the Greek and Armenian lobbies. You may think Turkey doesn't need the EU or the US. However, the Turkish military is well aware how quickly the balance of power in the Aegean can shift and the diplomatic balance of power can shift against the occupation of Northern Cyprus.
