The Peshmerga are the only capable fighters in the entire country. I wish them well in holding all their territory. The Iraqi Army on the other hand is a fucking joke. No matter who the opposition is, their first instinct when the going gets tough is to tear off their uniforms and flee. They aren't worth a cunt full of cow slobber.

The Kurds must really not have much loyalty to the standing Iraqi government. What I don't understand is why the Kurdish troops don't attack ISIS while they are weak.

Guy in the refugee camp sounds like FSA to the max.

He looks like he is of fighting age & shape, go make your own breaks or pick up a gun and take back what's yours.

To what end?

If your desired end state is international recognition as a sovereign nation, what would be your strategy?

They don't have any loyalty to the Iraqi government and would just as soon be rid of them... which probably explains why they are leaving ISIS alone, it's just not their fight. Their territory might be within Iraqi lines on the map but it is considered an "autonomous region" and they are independent in all but name.
