    ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's powerful military chief said Wednesday that the army backed the deployment of U.S. troops in the country for a war in neighboring Iraq.

    Gen. Hilmi Ozkok stressed, however, that the military respected parliament's rejection on Saturday of a motion to allow deployment of the U.S. troops.

    But he said that letting the United States open a northern front against Iraq would lead to a shorter war, minimize casualties and U.S. support would help Turkey with any economic fallout.

    Ozkok's statement was likely to put more pressure on legislators to overturn their rejection of the bill.
