A few weeks ago, the Kurds took land to act as buffer zones against the ISIS radicals. That was a good decision.
Now the Kurds have taken several oil fields in the Kirkut area.
I am glad at least one group of people in the (soon to be) former Iraq has the brains and balls to act in a self sufficient manner without being completely corrupt, self centered narcissist bastards. From the stories I have heard from our Special Op soldiers is that the Kurds (as a group) are honest fighters and very willing to keep any assjacks out of their area of control. Be those people, Sunni, Shiite, Al Queda or John Kerry.
Now please help me to understand our stance on actively inhibiting this.
We have a mostly pro US group (despite our previous treachery) who really only wants to keep their ancestral homes and way of life from falling under the control of the “Caliphate of Islam” or whatever ISIS is calling its land. Why are we not falling all over ourselves to assist this proven group of fighters.
Oh wait, see Isreal (and any other group who is pro US and mostly self sufficient)
Now, we won’t even buy Kurdish oil or SELL the Kurds ammunition so they can defend themselves against ISIS.
Hell, we should be
DONATING BEGGING THEM TO TAKE boat loads of ammo as well as offering incentive pay to Spec Op guys with existing relationships with the Kurds, to go back in theater.
