: PUK leader Jalal Talabani told Turkish reporters that if Saddam Hussein falls there will be no independent Kurdistan. Heres one of several interesting Talabani quotes: "The American Army will liberate us from the Iraqi dictatorship, and there will no longer be any question (for us) to secede." Talabani was in Ankara for a series of talks with the Turkish government. KDP leader Necirvan Barzani was also in Ankara for the same meetings as was a representative from Iraqs Turkmen (ie, Turk) minority community.
