Sir: Turkish ministers boast of the destruction of 2,664 Kurdish villages and the making homeless of two million Kurds by the Turkish army ("Turkish jets buzz Syria", 5 October), and the Western powers do absolutely nothing to right this wrong, while at the same time threatening death and destruction on Mr Milosevic for his actions in Kosovo, which are on a very much smaller scale.

The Kurds are demanding the same for themselves as do the Kosovans, but because Turkey is an ally of the West it is allowed to get away with savage repressions without any threat of action by the Western powers. What hypocrisy!
