Beginning Of Siege? Egypt, UAE, Jordan, Turkey, Iran And Lebanon Suspended Flights To Iraqi Kurdistan

On September 27, Egypt, UAE, Jordan, Turkey, Iran and Lebanon main airways announced that they will suspend all of their flights to Erbil Airport in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.

The step came after the Iraqi Civil Aviation Committee requested all countries and airway to suspend their flights to any airport in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.

Flights from the six countries to the Kurdistan Region are expected to fully stop within 2-4 days. The decision will for sure have a major impact on the economy of the Kurdistan Region especially that most flights to Erbil are from these six countries.

It’s also expected that many other countries will suspend their flights in the coming days, if the Kurdistan Region crisis is not solved. The Iraqi Federal Government could try to impose a No-Fly zone over the Kurdistan Region, and order the Iraqi Air Force to forbid any flight from landing in Erbil Airport if the crisis goes on.

Earlier, the Kurdish Region Government (KRG) rejected the order from the Iraqi Federal Government to hand over all international airports to it. The KRG even described the Iraqi Federal Government order as “illegal”.

Civilians can still travel from and to the Kurdistan Region as all roads to the region are still open. Moreover, Iran and Turkey border crossings with the Kurdistan Region are still open for civilians.

However, it is believed that Iraq Federal Government, Turkey and Iran might step up their measures against the KRG, and fully close the borders with it if the KRG pushes its Kurdistan Region independence project. Such development will mean that the Kurdistan Region will be under a siege from all sides.

On September 27, Chief of Staff for the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Major general Mohammad Bagheri told reporters after a meeting with his Iraqi counterpart General Othman al-Ghanmi in the Iraqi capital Baghdad that Iran will never recognize an independent Kurdish state in Iraq.

Maj. Gen. Bagheri also said that “Iran is ready to support the control of the Iraqi government on the joint border between the two countries”.

Maj. Gen. Bagheri statements from Baghdad confirms that the Iraqi Federal Government and other regional powers like Iran and Turkey are more than willing to work together to kill the Kurdistan Region independence project.

    The things Barzani does to stay in power…

    It’s an ill loop: He follows the orders of his masters from Tel Aviv to stay in power, and needs to stay in power to execute the orders of his masters.
    Meanwhile, he destroys the dreams and hopes of his people, and hurts the very wide autonomy they used to enjoy.
    They’ll know the value of what they have now, when they loose it, not when while having it.

    • Barba_Papa

      One needs to only look at Zimbabwe what happens when a leader is utterly willing to ruin his own country to stay in power.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Also the leaders of the US, EU,UK ,Saudi Arabia et al, in the last few decades.

      • Pete

        I’m not sure it’s the same at the moment, but i don’t know the situation in Zimbabwe. It seemed to me democratic, no real ethnic fight at all. In normal case even Turkey it’s happening.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          5.25 million Kurds live in Iraq and have been ethnically cleansing the region since 1991-2003 and still to this day and threaten death to the original inhabitants, the Kurds are relatively new to the area in the past few hundred years.

          Yes, I know they have been cleansing longer than you have been alive. The Population is estimated about 22.5+ million in total with 2.3+ million in Europe numbers have jumped for decades from original claims 20 years ago almost doubled in size as this has been a slow US psy-op.

          What is really telling is chief head Jew in America Chuck Schumer is supporting this nonsense, typically holds an Israeli passport.

          • Kawa Asinger

            22.5+ million? Where did you get that from? Your back side. Ethnic cleansing? Funny 😂! How come Iraq refused to take its own IDPs; instead, the KRG took them in. A total of 1.8 million IDPs and refugees. The Kurds are relatively new? Don’t bring your fabricated history here. The Kurds have been there for Millenia coward. There is an estimated 22.5 million Kurds in Turkey, 12 million in Iran, 9.3 million in Iraq, an about 3 million in Syria. You can look at any source and the population count is far greater than 22.5 million shit head. The only losers that are new in this region are the mongoloid Turks. And a people who have expressed their democratic right to self-determination, is not illegal. KRG has called on Baghdad for dialogue and a peaceful solution to the crisis, but Baghdad is trying to use this referendum as an excuse to centralise Iraq, and take it back to pre-2003. And KRG doesn’t have to abide by Baghdad’s demand if it isn’t approved by Kurdistan Parliament. The sharing of Power was agreed upon, but Baghdad failed to share power and make Iraq federal; rather, it made it sectarian and the mirror of Iran.

          • Daniel Castro

            The real issue is not regional, it is geopolitics, kurd have allied themselves with USA and Israel, these two are not only enemies of the secular arab countries and persians, they are enemies of the civilized world, so kurds are allied with the enemies of the world, they became the enemies of the world by association, so everyone will be against you sorry.

            Do you think we like to be on the same side with the turks?! You ask for this, the war will be brutal, this is not URSS in afhganistan, turks won’t try to build schools, they won’t try to negotiate, they won’t try to minimize civilian casualties, it will be an onslaught, but, again, you’re the ones asking for this.

          • Kawa Asinger

            Persian secular states? Where in your ass? Last time I checked religion was THE state law of Iran. Also known as the ISLAMIC REPUBLIS OF IRAN! Iraq is also an Islamic republic as it is part of its state law! The Christian in Baghdad called for protection from harassment and killings. 😂😂 so much for secular states. All these secular states displaced their Jewish population forcefully, and they became refugees in Israel. Israel welcomed them. The displaced Arabs were not even welcomed by their own Arab brethren. So, you don’t know shot about history. We asked for this? What a fucking fascist prick! We held a non-binding referendum to express the people’s will, and we get reaction with threats of genocide and total annihilation. Guilt by association, is what dictators use to kill their opponents. KRG has not been a threat to any of the regional countries. And KRG is the most secure and liberal region in the ME. The Iranians have also bought weapons from the Israelis, allegedly by “accident”. And Kurds will not become anti-Semitic and attack Jews, because of their call to a homeland in the land that they were forcefully displaced from. You have no proof of what you say, and you only speak based on emotions. So you can take a hike mate! 😊

          • jhon malakiat

            the biggest jews population (afrer israel) lived i Iran. how can you say persian hate jews.

            there is nothing wrong to become jews.

            iran and arab especially iraq or syria hate zionis that occupied palestine. and kurd allied themselves with this zionis.

            with your decision to become allied with zionist, so dont moaning if all arab will make declaration war with you.

            kurd not choose to become independent country. instead, kurd choose to become zionist slave. dont try foolish us with your shit word, dude..

          • Manny

            Yea, right, the Kurds do nothing wrong and bad, that is why they are trying to put hands on the Syrian oil fields. What is the population in at least 80 percent of the stolen territory? Not minority, the Kurds are not existent there at all. In the beginning i was supporting the Kurds cause, but after that they have become greedy and everybody hates greedy two faced people ;)

          • jhon malakiat

            its fucking clear, kurd is rats in syria land.

            fuck off kurd!!!

          • Daniel Castro

            Can you read, I wrote “secular arab countries AND PERSIANS”, i never wrote they were secular idiot.

            kurds-fre iraq!

          • dutchnational

            Completely correct.

            But what can one expect from sectarian dictatorships like all countries around the KRG?

          • Kawa Asinger

            We say peace, they say war. We say dialogue, they say war. We say compromise, they say war. We say friendship, they say war. And we are the bad guys. 😂

          • jhon malakiat

            since kurd choose to become zionist slave, you choose war with all arab. period.

          • jhon malakiat

            if any country that killed so many moeslim then its usa zionist.

            if any big war in middle east or moslem country, in around the world, 99pct there is usa zionist finger print.

            there is more than 20 million refuge around the world, and more than 90pct is from moslem country. and its because, usa zionist kurd patron.

            kurd choose to become usa zionist slave. we declacre war with you..

          • dutchnational

            We as in we?

            Not Turkey, Syria, Iraq ad iran. They threaten war. Barzani (not my friend) proposes talks. Answer of all the others : not interested.

            If they will not talk, then KRG will take its own decisions without considering the input others could have made but were not interested in making.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            This is typical dutchnational did you get crazy one morning and use Turkish words and reference the legend of Kurdish blacksmith named Kawa Asinger. Why don’t you go create another account.

          • Igor Dano

            Those bitches should perrish, all of them, regardles your math acrobatic.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            What is strange for the past 15 years watching the number of Kurds triple in size from their actual numbers. The only one pulling numbers out of the air is you and this based on reliable data that hasn’t been manipulated in the past 20 years.

            The only ones proving they are sectarian are large segment of Kurds and like Mullah Krekar have a hatred for Arabs and Christians except Jews. Barzani and the Talabani like you have a long hatred for Arabs and have always never been shy in killing them as they do see them as lesser beings not unlike their Brothers in ISIS.

            Why do you disparage known secular countries and accuse them of what you are truly like in attitude and historical preferences of your tribe.These are all democracies unlike the KRG which is just a facade of a President as an Emir. The KRG has never in 26+ years plus has ever been a compliant member in Iraq, as they seem more bent on stealing and making illegal contracts on Iraqi land.

        • Barba_Papa

          In Zimbabwe, as part of the deal reached to end the 1970’s war of independence, the white minority was allowed to keep its land holdings, which were extensive, in exchange for giving up power. Over time president Robert Mugabe, in a bid to prop up his failing popularity turned a blind eye, and encouraged, the takeover of white owned land by black war veterans. As a result the whites left the country and the economy went downhill like a fighter jet hit by a SAM missile. For the national economy was utterly dependent on agricultural exports from those white owned farms. Which the vets, having no large scale farming experience, could not manage. Utterly ruthless Mugabe let his veterans lose on anyone willing to speak out against him, beat up the opposition and basically drove the economy into the ground. Inflation levels not seen since the days of Weimar republic. You can probably google for fun pics of Zimbawean dollar bills worth trillions of worthless dollars. People had to pay with stacks of these. Millions of Zimbabweans fled the country to South Africa to escape poverty and famine from what used to be one of the richest African countries. All because its president refused to give up power.

          • What happened to Rhodesia pains my heart. It was the breadbasket of Africa, it used to be able to produce enough food to feed 90% of the entire continent, now Zimbabwe relies on foreign food aid from the UN and the likes. That’s what you get when you kick out and brutalize people who knew how to farm.

            Sad thing is that Rhodesia wasn’t even as bad as SA in terms of race relations, true there was white minority rule, but blacks enjoyed many more freedoms than their counterparts in SA. The African Rifles fought valiantly side by side with their white fellow Rhodies. It’s a shame the country was betrayed both by Britain and SA, also the international community, with their misplaced ideas about fairness and “equality”.

      • Igor Dano

        If u live in the EU, you do not need to go to Afrika for an example.
        Just go out of your house, on the street. And here you are.

  • Serious

    What about Saudi Arabia ?

    • Admiral_Moorer_believed

      It won’t matter if there is a No Fly zone over the Kurdish areas. . .

      • Kawa Asinger

        We’ll see. No fly zone my ass. The moment decides to starve and Kill Kurds, the west will not sit and let it happen. Hell even Russia disagrees with Shitraq. Lavrov clearly said that the kurds have the right to freedom, their aspirations to self-determination Ian legitimate. Pfft. We’ll see.

        • Dear Kawa, here in the West, we couldn’t give two shits about backstabbing animals like your tribe, by all means, ally yourself with the devil, keep on going down this path of lunacy, but I promise you there will be no intervention from the West. We might spend half hour on some news channel looking at the charred bodies of your brethren after the Turks smoke you out, maybe some us will change their facebook profile with the kurdish flag in solidarity and light a candle.

          But we won’t move a finger to save you. Backtrack right now or face the consequences, knowing how Turks and Arabs operate, I believe those consequences won’t be nice

  • Ronald

    SAA will need to close the Syrian – Iraqi border as well .

    • Pete

      I don’t think it will ever happen, i think the opposite will happen. I have some feelings that US is preparing to harden the position of Iraq at this point. It will be a very nasty game, as they cannot confront directly.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        us has no legitimity be in iraq. if the iraqi government says adios muchachos, yanks must go ;)

        • Kawa Asinger

          Ok buddy, and if the Yanks say we are gonna fuck you up. Then sayonara bitches. 😂

          • Solomon Krupacek

            cant tell. there is an international law. so flagrant can not be america :D they would lose lot of in all world.

          • Pete

            In this case the US can excuse for saving human rights The problem it’s evident for everybody, and without US help ISIS would still exist and would be powerful not just in Iraq, in Syria also. Turks had to involve also in some region. (I remember that in Al Bab it was very hard with SAA and Turks to fight ISIS) I don’t think that there is difference between armies. In some area SAA can fight ISIS very quickly, some areas like Homes not. Al-Bab was a surprise resistance, but Raqqa told it will be emptied by ISIS. (i don’t think so)

          • LR captain

            He meant after ISIS is gone.

          • Pete

            I meant at this point if US leave it can be genocide against Kurds. US would make mistakes, when all the surroundings would even fight against Kurds. The only reason why they are making only sanctions, because US is there.

          • LR captain

            Iran hates kurds
            Turkey hates kurds
            Iraq will loose major part of tax revenue.
            Iraq support by PMU witch is supported by Iran
            Turkey, Iran, syria, Iraq and Russia distrust the kurds.

            US is out matched. Russia and China would force the US to stay out if it. They seem pretty at getting a situation under control.

          • dutchnational

            IS started shrinking after the failed attack on Kobane, half a year before Russia intervened.

          • Kawa Asinger

            These people praise dictators. They are in love with all that is bad. They state Kurds associate with US and Israel. Well here’s a history lesson. The Kurds stayed loyal to their Arab, and Turkish brethren. During colonial rule Sheikh Mahmoud Barzinji fought against the British, and in return the Kurds were gassed. And killed. Sheikh Mahmoud was exiled, and served time in a jail in India. While the Kurds were fighting against Colonialism, the Arabs, Turks and Persians sold out. Notable of the Arab sellouts was Shareef Hussein of Hijaz (Mecca and Medina). Shareef Hussein’s sons ruled Iraq and Jordan. In Iraq one of his sons were removed, but they still rule in Jordan till this day. Whilst, Kemal Mustafa Atashit, betrayed the Kurds and sided with the Colonial powers to divide the Kurds. Iran likewise. Russia was also allied to the British and French in Attacking and destroying the Ottomans (the empire of rape). Yet these Arabs, Turks and Persians hypocritically accuse the Kurds of what they have committed all this time.

          • Kawa Asinger

            You mean the PMU whom got their asses kicked by the Peshmerge Commandos in Tuz Khurmatu. Or the Turkgay, that bought cheap oil from ISIS. Or Iran that hangs little for enmity against god? Get fucked mate. You either defend human rights or you don’t. You either are against genocide or you aren’t. You either are a fascist or you’re not. Russia was carrying out hundreds of sorties a day, and the Syrian army was moving like slugs. The Kurds with air support blitzkrieg across the north. The Kurds called for a federal Syria with all rights of minorities protected. Russia also gave a blueprint for a better Syria. But Assad and the fascist Ba’ath regime rejected it.

          • LR captain

            solomon you seem to be getting smarter every day.

            cause you are the only one who realizes that if US loose its peace keeper image and people find out about their warmongering polices no one will support them in the UN.
            ,
            No one supports US war so US cuts UN funding, then, Russia ,china and Iran increase their funding to the UN. (when trump told the UN to stop condemning Israels occupation of Palestine of else the US would cut a lot of funding from the UN Russia and china said they were prepared to increase their donations to the UN.

            Even through you know what I am taking taking about. I still have to state it for the simple minded. If everyone see the US for what USA really no one will support it. There is NOTHING other than nuking everyone, that they can do about it.

            Trump also told Netanyahu to take it easy with the settlements. But hey, that went over your head.

    “Kurdistan Region independence project” not very well thought trough. Barzani being dazzled with the prospect of the future glory of his new fiefdom just couldn’t foresee it coming. Some people say hatred is blind. He must have hoped that Bashar would go and the direct road to Tel Aviv would be opened. But now he has found himself surrounded with the hostile neighbors whose hostility he has provoked.

  • Akar

    The kurds is not going to up their independence no matter what. It will only make them harder and stronger when all the arab countries is against it. Their people is getting more and more angry when they see how the Arab countries unite against them which will only make them fight harder. Wait and see for yourself.

      • Kawa Asinger

        I know man, the Turkish Gypsies. They committed genocide against the Armenian, greeks, and now Kurds. They came from Mongolian stepped and stole Anatolia. What a bunch of gypsies. The Kurdish people have a history of Millenia in that region. But what can you do when your neighbours are psychotic genocidal freaks of nature.

        • BL

          “Kurds” are an Iranian tribe, their entire “history” is intertwined with Iranian history, they have had no long lasting major independent political entity of their own. Kurdish nationalism is an entirely new concept devised out of thin air by Colonialist powers for the purpose of divide and conquer. All the historical nonsense associated to the Kurds like the Medes are baseless fabrications with zero proof. In fact all the actual facts disprove such theories.

          “Turks” who live in Turkey are indigenous Indo-European Anatolian Whites whose language got Turkified after the real ethnic Turks and Mongols immigrated to this region and founded local dyansties. The original founders of these dynasties no longer exist as a separate identifiable Turkic race and have gotten intermixed with the local population overtime.

          • Kawa Asinger

            Keep hiding the fact that you are a mongoloid. Kurds have had a long history in the region. And where all these sources to support your bullshit. I bet you will not find anything credible, or true. The Kurds are from the Medians. The Kurds are not an Iranian tribe dumb fuck. Their language have a common root. Persian, and Kurdish are indo-European languages of the proto-indo-European root, which is thought to come from the modern Ukraine and Russian areas. So what the fuck are you on about prick!

          • BL

            You’re the one making the claim Kurds are Median, you’re the one who has to prove it genius not me. There was no “Kurdish” language during the Median era, the language spoken in Media was “Median” which is an extinct ancient Iranian language that is now extinct. Kurds ARE Iranian, which is why they celebrate the ancient Iranian holiday of Nowrooz, are clearly Iranian by race, and used to practice the Iranian religion of Zoroastrianism before Islam (Some still do today). Their entire history is one with Iran.

            From wikipedia:

            “Though some Kurdish intellectuals claim that their people are descended from the Medes, there is no evidence to permit such a connection across the considerable gap in time between the political dominance of the Medes and the first attestation of the Kurds” – van Bruinessen

            Contemporary linguistic evidence has challenged the previously suggested view that the Kurds are descendants of the Medes.[62][63] Gernot Windfuhr (professor of Iranian Studies) identified the Kurdish languages as Parthian, albeit with a Median substratum.[64] David Neil MacKenzie, an authority on the Kurdish language, said Kurdish was relatively [more] closer to Persian and questioned the “traditional” view holding that Kurdish, because of its differences from Persian, should be regarded a “NW-Iranian” language .[65] Garnik Asatrian stated that “The Central Iranian dialects, and primarily those of the Kashan area in the first place, as well as the Azari dialects (otherwise called Southern Tati) are probably the only Iranian dialects, which can pretend to be the direct offshoots of Median … In general, the relationship between Kurdish and Median are not closer than the affinities between the latter and other North Western dialects — Baluchi, Talishi, South Caspian, Zaza, Gurani, etc.”[66]

        • Solomon Krupacek

          kurds were the exekutors. tha same fate also for kurds. karma is supreme :))

          • Kawa Asinger

            Your proof? There is none. The Kurds were not in power to kill Armenians. And if they were they wouldn’t do it. It was the Hamadiye and the ottomans. You can’t blame the action of a small group on all people from the same ethnicity. Here is my source prick.

            http://ekurd.net/the-role-of-the-kurds-in-the-armenian-genocide-were-they-perpetrators-or-an-instrument-2015-04-22

            Kurds don’t deny the genocide, the Turks do. Big fucking difference. The Kurds have expressed their disdain for any Kurdish individual that took part in any attack on the Armenians. The Turks have no sympathy and deny everything. That is why the Armenians are anti-Turks and not Kurds. I know Armenian people.

            Pfff. Karma? An intent to commit genocide is not Karma buddy, it is a crime against humanity. But fascists like yourself get aroused at the sight of dead innocent children, women and elderly. You fight a free people, because you are afraid that people will wake and see that you are nothing but a lying 🤥 piece of shit.

      • Mountains

        This is more of a provocation against the us then against kurds. Interesting to see how the US will react to all of this. They will have to restore their order. I don’t see them responding kindly to this veiled aggression and provocations against them

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Wake up Porky , there is no problem with the Iraqi Army as they have to deal with them constantly, but word is they will pull out if a civil war starts and return when the Iraqi Govt. has the situation under control. Since the US can’t play diplomacy here they are automatically disqualified so now it’s left to the Russians. There are none of the allies experiencing any veiled threats and you can’t create that with your bogus hysteria.

  • Pete

    I think US needs to think twice, what he will do, if Kurdish people will be left alone, than after this 14 years of horror will be mirrored everywhere where Kurds lives. The fight would intensify. The reaction will make the opposite, after the vote it would be more tragic, and it would not like fighting ISIS. If Russia would be involved in a genocide, it will be kicked out from the UN, i think, as there are so many ways to accept the will to prevent human rights abuse, what the UN is for, and i think that would happen. To be honest there is no way to go back to Bagdad and say i’m happy to be killed, i don’t think that Kurds at this point does care about the oil, and the sanctions would cause withdrawal. I think it will be blown up to a bigger conflict soon, where Kurds coming from Syria to help, and that will forge the nation. If this game won’t happen, the risk would be much more less that Kurds would unite at some point. It’s an unbelievable arrogance from everybody in that Penninsula, but it’s not a small nation, it can be measured by Saudi Arabia population.

      The boundaries of the Middle East were made by the western colonial powers not according to nationalities but according to influence sharing , piece of the cake . That all happened before the existence of Israel .
      The only reason for the Arab spring and in particular the Syrian conflict is to redesign the boundaries of the Arab world to make a permanent and official place for Israel on the map of the new Middle East . Everything else is a smoking mirrors and side shows

        The borders of Iran and Turkey were not artificially made by Colonial powers but you’re right about the rest.

        • J. Laoshe

          It was the Ottoman Empire that they devided creating in the process the modern boundaries of turkey as well .

      Russia will not be involved in a genocide. I love ❤️ Russia for one reason. They defend international law, and do not abuse them. They will not commit genocide or be a pet of it. Russia already voiced its support for the referendum.

    I sense some weakness if this is the initial course of action. Maybe they’re giving more chance to diplomacy. More probably, it is now a fact on the ground that the region will have to learn to deal with. Why can’t these people see that they are all descendants and the legacy of the early civilizations first?! I guess an independence movement is the end result for federalization or autonomy movements. Westphalian order seems to be in the process of being destroyed. Every difference is being high lighted and used as a basis for separation. What kind of world are we in, where we are divided by these differences? We’ll be thrown back to the middle ages where religion, societies, and corporations move in where countries fail. We are now in the 21st century but instead of uniting, we are actually regressing.

      Zionist divide and conquer, it’s how the Jews have ruled since the dawn of time.

      Well, they wouldn’t secede if they were treated as equals. And be exposed to the Antal genocide that killed 182,000 innocent civilian Kurds.

      • Lazy Gamer

        For every genocide, the only answer we can come up is separation?! Every race has blood on their hands. Each and every one. Now we can let that be our baggage or we can try to start anew.

    UAE/Saudi shipments of bulk hydrogen peroxide that ISIS used for explosives in Iraq and Syria were shipped through Erbil for distribution. How the hell are head-choppers suppose to manufacture explosives if they can’t get shipments delivered? Oh, wait… I see Saudi Arabia is not on the list. False alarm, head-choppers – order away!

    • Kawa Asinger

      And your sources are?

      • Solomon Krupacek

        he is the distributor.

        The Conflict Arms Report PDF from a year-and-a-half ago. The link will download the .pdf directly – there isn’t an online version that I know of.

        And no reason to get all butt-hurt about this going through the Kurdish capital. This had nothing to do with the Kurds or Barzanistan, and everything to do with the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

    good barzani kurds will learn lesson for betraying its fellow country men ans siding with Israel and US . KURDS ARE THE NEEW STAIN ON ISLAMIC WORLD . THEY ARE PRO ZIONIST NOW AND WESTERN CULTRE. BARZANI KURDS CANNOT BE TRUSTED. BARZANI IS LIKE AZERBAIJAN PRESIDENT ALEVI DICTATOR PEOPLE DOENT LIKE HIM BUT WITH THE HELP OF US AND ISRAL HE IS IN POWER

    Northern Syria has expressend their full support for the democratic rights of the KRG and will keep their borders with the KRG open.

    In case of food shortages, Northern Syria has much surplus food and they are willing to trade or swap.

    They will not suffer sectarian racists to cause hunger for their “family”.

    • Kawa Asinger

      The Syrian FM just said that Syria is ready to talk to the Kurds about an autonomous region in the north, after ISIS is defeated. Look like Syria doesn’t want to be dragged into a long war. Or Russia knows that Turkey is a treacherous piece of shit, and that they want to expand their territory into Southern Kurdistan because the Russians no Americans stopped them in Western Kurdistan.

      • dutchnational

        Read it too.

        Seems like small drops of wisdom are sinking into some minds.

        All the posturing against KRG is stupid too. Rossneft just bought a lot of oilwells of KRG and paid a very large amount to KRG. Putin will not accept that money being lost to some tiny sectarian dictator somewhere.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          until now you did not trust putin :)))))
