KRG forces were not able to pose any significant resistance to the army and its allies. The army launched an operation in the area lat on October 15. The city of Kirkuk was liberated on October 16.

Pro-Kurdish sources are blaming the US for a lack of the support.

      why? what is wrong with freedom for 30 million people?

      • Tudor Miron

        Matty, your version of freedom… why don’t you keep it for yourself?

        • matt

          Because this is an open platform, herr miron

        Freedom? They have not been slaves. They are free to begin with.
        Oh you mean the freedom to detonate more car bombs in Iran right?
        Yea about that. The world rejects the Kurdish demand to terrorize non-Kurd’s like when they ethnically cleansed millions of Armenians during the Kurdish created genocide against Armenians.
        Yea, we must never allow that again!

        • matt

          According to the kurds i know, they were not free at all! One from syria and one from iran, both ran away.
          How many kurds do you know?

          • Real Anti-Racist Action

            Ran away? Millions of Kurd’s live in Iran with powerful voices and business and youtube channels.
            They are not slaves.
            You are a Zionist-supremacist propagator spreading a disinformation campaign of hateful lies.
            That is why you have zero evidence.
            Tell your friend who ran away to make a youtube video showing his face and telling his story lol.

            Sure, whatever you say

        • matt

          You are a hypocrite, only mentioning the wrong doing of the kurds, but ignore the wrong doing towards the kurds

          • Real Anti-Racist Action

            Oh please tell me how Christians have done wrong to kurd’s?
            Please give me the name, date time and place where Christians genocided millions of Kurd’s?

          • matt

            who said christians? But christians killed many others……

          • Real Anti-Racist Action

            I said that Kurd’s genocided Christians during the Armenian-genocide which was committed by Kurd’s.
            I am asking when Armenians genocided millions of Kurd’s?
            Why do Kurd’s car bomb Iranians citizens?
            Why are Kurd’s so racist?
            Why do Kurd’s invade indigenous Germanic tribal peoples?
            Why are Kurd’s so racist?
            Why were Kurd’s part of Stalin’s terror machine against citizens of Iran?

          • matt

            Wow, you found another evil group of people! You know what? kurds and jews have the same genes!!!

            Stop talking shit

          • peace lover

            The christians france and united kingdom conqured that part of the world in the early 19th centry and devided the kurds to into the 4 countires around it only to be supressed and not have equal rights. Stop talking out of your ass.

            Karkuk belongs to kurdistan.

    • peace lover

      I can tell right away you a turkish bastard just by how dogs bark. We will liberate Kirkuk soon and inshallah the rojava in the near future.

  • MH370

    SDF better take note. Learn

  • nwoecb

    Iraqi government and armed forces need to move to Erbil to physically arrest Barzani and his Zionist accomplices for high treason against the state.

    SDF take note! You will face high treason charges as well!

  • opereta

    US wants to stay in Iraq so it can’t help Barzani. If it does, it risks being Expelled from Iraq as a Double Dealing Bandit !!

    • nwoecb

      Indeed, Iraqi government should make that very clear to USA that they have the option to close the biggest embassy in the world.

  • Solomon Krupacek

    bitter day for kurdish traitors

    • nwoecb

      A lot of them certainly are.

    • matt

      traitor? explain

  • Tal Wolf

    There will be a free Kurdistan. And there will be a defeat to the Iranian and Shia monsters and murderers.

    • Tal Wolf

      Im hope that my goverment will help the Kurds in anyway, including weapons, soldiers and air force against the Shiites.

      • SKY

        Because you the Zionist the world is not safe place and mid- east is all fucked up.Fuck you all

        • Tal Wolf

          You mean the Jews, we all to be blame, in every problem in the world, like Hitler said. Say it loud and clear: YOU HATE THE JEWS! AND YOU WANT TO DESTROY US LIKE YOU TRIED FOR 2000 YEARS! But I have news for you: You will NOT succeed. We are here to stay. Because of that Israel supports the Kurds and I personlly hope not just with words but with weapons and with training and with action of the IDF against Iran the terrorist and its puppets.
          God bless Israel and Kurdistan!

          • Solomon Krupacek

            you, personally belong in lager. you are nationalist, conqueror, hater of others.

          • Tal Wolf

            Solomon Krupacek, maybe I am. But I have many historic reasons to be. This is for another debate.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            This is for another debate.

            Sure. My granfather saved jews. My teacher was jew. i borrowed from him lot off books. i have to emplers jews in my firm. i respect their sabbat. i like jewsh culture. but i dont like israel.

            this was big mistake also from your side. i think, until end of this century you will leave that soil. for lot of reasons.

          • Tal Wolf

            Yes, you like the Jews very weak, and very small in numbers. Must have been billions of Jews by now if you hadn’ t killed us and make us by force become muslims and Christians. But now there are only 15 millions Jews left in the world. Small amount as you like. But those 15 milliins are not weak anymore. They have Israel, they dont give the other cheek anymore. They will fight till the end with their atomic bombs. So let us see if you take us till the end of this century. If so, we will take ALL of you with us. Lets us give God decide we will stay/win
            We are all nothing before God, you and I.
            Good luck with this.Really.

          • sam_koll

            Our Messiah has told both you and us. two thirds of you will be cut off, and one third saved when half of Jerusalem is taken. Go and read Zachariah 14
            Go and learn from Daniel who told you clearly ” seventy weeks are determined on your people and your holy city…” You chose to Ignore what God told you very clearly …and you are still today following the customs of men not the commandments of God. I hope you make it into the remnant that is to be saved; that is all I wish to say

          • Alex

            Hmm weren’t that the US jews that have financed the rise of nazi germany and helped them to take over most of europe.

      • Mortal

        And I hope your government also pays for the brain transplant you so desperately need.

        • Tal Wolf

          Really? Also Israel was attacked by 5 Arab countries in 1948 when it was established and Israel won big time. And so do the Kurds can. They must stand strong and firm against the aggrresion of Terrorist Iran and its puppets with the help of Israel and U.S.A.
          And you need a transplant of a dick so you become a man and won’t run anymore from ISIS like you did, until the aircrafts of U.S.A. came to attack ISIS.

          • Mortal

            I think the flow of events is already discrediting you. Sit back and enjoy the show. The next move is on US/Nutanyahoo/Barzani. And it had better be a calculated one.

    • Rafik Chauhan

  • Bru

    Waaoh fanstastic news of freedom, first liberating from ISIS terrorists, now from the rule of PKK related terrorists. Congratulations to all Arabs for this great liberation!

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Haha so the Kurd’s do not just talk like Ashkenazi-Jews but they also fight like them to lol.
    Always needing Americans to fight their wars for them the bigots.
    The world will not be missing the Kurdish terrorist not one bit.
    And all your drug gangs in the streets of Germany can also rot, all you do is thieve and blow people up.
    Talk tough then run before the battle ever truly begins.

    • peace lover

      Stop talking shit and spreading hate. We are the poeple. Fuck use backward thinking farse arab and turks. Use.sll are full of hate. Never wanted anything good for the kurds. We cant even live in peace in the lands that belong to us.

      • peace lover

        We are racist? Look in kurdistan iraq we accommodate over a million refugees. If we were so racist I will be take Arabs and Turks in as refuge asshole?! Stop talking shit. Kurds had nothing to do with armenias genocide that was the turks get your facts right or dont clean your own hands on the kurds.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    United Snake of America (USA) are exploitas and traitors you foolish Kurds were warm not to break unity with your fellow country man.It is beter to stay united not including devided United States of America.Never uses the war in Iraq and Syria as opportunity to backstab your fellow country men Arabs.Americans will sucks you like a oranges as their did to Gadafi request him to abandone nuclear weapons and killed him.Support Sadam and killed him.Supported Jona Savimbi and killed him.Create Taliban,ISIS and Alqaida and betrayed them for their own benefit.

  • SnowCatzor

    Whilst I generally support the Kurds push for independence, they’ve been getting greedy lately by holding areas that don’t belong to them i.e. that aren’t heavily Kurdish. I fear they’re doing the same in Syria at the moment in Raqqa and northern Deir Ez Zor province.

    The Kurds should stay in the north and stop pushing southward. When the war with ISIL is over they will have a much better chance of attracting international support if they don’t look like land-grabbers.

    • Tchoutoye

      The land-grabbing they did after the Armenian genocide. Now they look more like a door mat for Anglo-Zionists to clean their boots on.
