  • The Kurds number over 45,000 regular fighting forces. They have done nothing. The CIA and Mossad instructed them to not fight to much, to let the Syrians and Iraqis do the fighting and dying. The Kurd’s also just launched yesterday another front against Iran trying to conquer the good Iranian people.
    Iran killed all attacking forces yesterday. As Kurd’s continue their onslaught against the Middle East in the name of “Greater-Israel” then Syrians and Iranian’s and Iraqis are going to continue suffering.

      PJAK is pretty weak and insignificant, you make it up as if it was some big uprising, while in fact it’s just a small group of fools. And more importantly they maybe represent a very small portion of the Kurdish people (a very small one). For some reason you want people to hate all Kurds and you’re very persistent about it. You repeat the same stuff over and over (as if you were paid to do it by someone in order to promote hate against the Kurds in order to more easily fit them into USA-Israel league…)

      • In reality, the Kurd’s launched thousands of fighters invading Iran just 6 years ago, and the Iranian people fought a full war for a full year against them before defeating the Kurdish-supremacist. And Kurds launched a major war against the Iranian people also under Stalin’s leadership, involving ten’s of thousands of troops back then to. It is a constant problem.

          Trotzdem ist ihr Kommentar oben rassistisch und antisemitisch. Warum nennen Sie sich also Antirassit, wenn sie dem Hass frönen?

    • When across the border there are ten of thousands fully equipped Turks ready to invade in Syria, 45.000 regular forces cant do much…..
