    Well, I guess that sews it up. They have nukes now, so they're rumbling around seeing if they can start something so they can start wiping US Allies off the face of the map. I guess Petraeus replacement General John Allen will have his hands full immediately after having been passed the baton.

    These "Opposition Groups" are terrorists.
    It's same organization as PKK.
    And the mountain (Kandil) in Iraq from where they operate also reaches into Iran.
    There is no civilian population there.


    Right is Iran, left Iraq and to the North lies Turkey:

    Well the Iranians have always repressed the Kurds, even when Iran was a US Ally. In fact the Shah of Iran personally asked the US to stop supporting the Kurds when he was in power, so they could crush them. The Kurds have a long history in the region of being attacked from all sides.

    Cool. Not a big fan of the Kurds. All the countries you listed are victims of their terrorism.

    I have to disagree with you there bro, the Kurds are one of the few friends America has in the region. Even though we have turned our backs on the Kurds and fucked them hard when Bush Senior told the people in Iraq to raise up, and than let Saddam slaughter them, the Kurds generally do like Americans and look to us as a big brother of sorts. Kurdistan is the only place in Iraq where an American can go without security, there have been no American Troops killed in Kurdistan. Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran don't like the Kurds because of cultural differences and have been repressing them for decades.
