The Turks are in:

After months of high-level pressuring of foreign friends to send in troops to help with the stabilization and rebuilding of Iraq, the United States has got its first big break. Turkey, which said no to joining in the war, Tuesday voted to approve sending what could be as many as 10,000 troops to help with the peace.

The vote is seen as a bid to repair relations with the US and to play a role in the shaping of a future Iraq. It cheers the US, which is keen to bring in large numbers of Muslim troops to join coalition forces.
