Yeah, that’s our ally Iraq. It’s not a secret, both sides–the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and the Kurds targeted by the Iranians–confirm heavy fighting. Although there’s quite a difference between the claims: the Guards have declared victory and say they’ve taken over Kurdish “camps.” The PJAK spokesperson says the score so far is 53 Iranian dead and 2 Kurds.
I once said that it’s a fixed principle of American foreign policy to betray the Kurds at least once every ten years or so. Well?
Meanwhile, the secretary of state is busy giving moralistic lessons to the Turks (!) on religious toleration. Is her next stop in Armenia? Or will it be Kurdistan?
