      The PMU smashing NATO’s Greater Israel project.

    They are welcomed like brothers unlike the Kurds with distrust and wariness , can see why they were told not to take part. The Barzani Kurds are just as criminal as ISIS is , kill people because they think it’s their right. The Feyli Kurds will end up fighting the Sunni Kurds again if the Barzani mob has their way with the referendum.

      I don’t think it will be allowed by US. Kurds has neutral rights to get independence, but why to fight for a land, which won’t be theirs it’s understandable. anyway Iraqi militians has been told to rush i think before the referendum with that speed, they can fight ISIS before the referendum.:)

        Many Kurds are against it as they see this as an US and Israeli attempt to have the Kurds defeated. This is a losing proposition even the US knows it and why they want the Kurds to be defeated as they intend to withdraw. US is a fair weather friend wants it’s bad they are gone and any equipment on loan goes with them, they might need it to fight their own war soon.

        The Kurds are in an area that was part of Armenia and Assyria so what right do they have , now be honest. The answer is obvious one which is none since they try to take what isn’t theirs land people etc. this will end badly. The Kurds are not a fighting force good at banditry but in a fight they will be wiped out.NATO made sure you guys needed them to help and you are nothing but reserves in comparison to the Iraqi Army and PMU Hash’d Militias. Iraq will have Kurdish forces disarmed after this is over and they will be given a choice of staying or leaving.

        This will happen Peshmerga can’t survive on it’s own as they will be isolated , but what do you expect Barzani is Jewish and hope you might fight but , like I said you are no match for these forces. They already tried to attack in Sinjar and failed with some losses and no wounded for the Hash’d.
