    Kurds may be the largest national/ethnic group with out a state. Whether it takes up all or just part of the Kurdish majority region in the middle east, do you think there should be an independent Kurdish state?

    This will be a good topic for @Brook! to weigh in on as I really don't know enough about it to vote with confidence. I know Kurdish people deal with a lot of atrocities by their governments over there unfortunately.

    JV. Problem is Kurdish people are suffering in the hands of Dictators like Saddam, Humeyni Erdogan for years. Time for freedom for all Kurds. Israel seems to be our only friend in the region. US Presidents keep fucking us in the ass then throw us in the hands of likes of Saddam and Erdogan.

    What's your opinion on the Kurds in the Syrian Civil War? They have been cooperating pretty closely and openly with Assads government since about 2015.

    Also I agree that Israel is the only country consistenly helping the Kurds and I think it is due to Kurds being enemies with nearly all of Israels enemies, as well as a human sympathy between two refugee peoples.

    'You can't be a real country without a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons, but in the very least you need a beer.' Frank Zappa

    So @Brook! do the Kurds have a beer?

    Hi barfolomew. In fact Kurds position against Assad has never changed. Assad hated Kurds while he was friends with Erdogan until 2015. He then became enemy to Erdogan and decided to cooperate with Kurds. Assad's father has killed thousands of Kurds throughout his regime. He was a butcher. Kurds will never forget this but Turkey is the common enemy for Assad and Kurds.
    Nope. We don't have an airline either. Lol. But we love wine. Wine can be called our national drink.
    Lol. I hate you joe

    Ava Zer, Nosh, Roj are 3 Kurdish branded beers but they are brewed in other countries. One says brewed in Romania, another Vienna and the 3rd I couldn't find that out.

    I spent a year in and around Mosul in 2003-2004. The Iraq theater was very different at that time that it has been since. I was fortunate to be in a position to meet, work with, and even befriend a lot of different people all over the northern third of the Iraq. Some of the finest people and some of the bravest people I've ever worked with were Iraqi Kurds.
    The U.S. pulling back their support of the Kurds has been my biggest disappointment in 2020, the year of constant huge disappointments.


    *Pull-back started in Fall, 2019. All this bad shit is just running together. I'm leaving it as i wrote it.

    Kurds have been getting stabbed in the back for centuries

    Bush should have annexed the top of Iraq and given it to the Kurds, and Turkey should have carved out the adjoining piece

    It's pathetic
