    Not that.....every little bit wouldn't help.

    That's how they got the Majority of the Christians out. It was the Kurds in Syria that cleared a path to let them out that way. Not back into Iraq where the press is on.
    Much bravery shown by the Kurds! They acted and did the right thing, knowing the odds were against them!

    Indeed Lady P. Plus now they are training the Yazidis.



    Kurdish militants train hundreds of Yazidis to fight Islamic State.....


    Kurdish militants have trained hundreds of Yazidi volunteers at several camps inside Syria to fight Islamic State forces in Iraq, a member of the armed Kurdish YPG and a Reuters photographer who visited a training camp said on Sunday. The photographer spend Saturday at the training camp at the Serimli military base in Qamishli, northeastern Syria on the border with Iraqi Kurdistan, where he saw 55 Yazidis being trained to fight the Islamic State.

    "On the top of the Singar mountains, in cooperation with locals and the YPG, the Yazidis have established what they call the Singar Resistance Units," he said by phone. The YPG, or the People's Defence Units, says it has no political affiliations but analysts say it has close ties to the Kurdistan Workers Party, PKK, who have waged a guerrilla war in Turkey for decades and which the U.S. lists as a terrorist organization.....snip~

    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

Policy, or incompetence.
    you'd have to define "militant Islamic Groups" it is a very wide possibility

    Smoke rises from the direction of Mosul dam

    The Mosul dam is Iraq's largest and was overrun by militants on 7 August

    BBC News - Kurdish forces 'break IS hold on Mosul dam'
    Kurdish forces in northern Iraq are in near complete control of Iraq's largest dam after ousting Islamic State (IS) militants, Kurdish officials say.

    Ground forces supported by US air strikes launched the operation to take Mosul dam on Sunday morning.

    Kurdish sources said they were still trying to clear mines and booby traps from the area round the dam, a process which could take several hours.

    good point. I had heard something about French air support -but where do they (Kurds) get the heavy weapons from?

    Okay that's true Monte. Yes the US has backed terrorists before. Even some that were not considered terrorists at the time. Yes the US is not Perfect Angels. Yes the US has started **** to deal with those that have cost us or affected us. But it is okay for those out there to hurt the US and its people Right? I mean in your eyes.....and from what you have stated around here in each area of US Foreign Policy. The US can never do anything Right? Just screw up according to you, and we should Always avoid confrontation with all others on the Planet. Even if affects us a Country. Even if others kill our people Right?

    Its okay for Others to declare War on the US....Right? Okay for them to kidnap and kill our people.....Right? Destroy our businesses, in whatever way they can, Right? We should never do anything but run away and stick our heads into the sand with our asses up in the air.....Right? I mean That's how your point comes across Monte. That's the US should never even come out of their House. Just hide and do nothing at all times. What do you think the whole Planet is going to hold hands and sing Kumbai-ya in the Future or something? Were you looking for Paradise and or slice of Heaven here where mankind exists?

    You constantly bash the US over their policy yet say nothing of any others Policy whatsoever.....do you think everyone else should be scrutinized as well? What about Russian Policy? Chinese Policy? What about Arab policies? Should they be allowed to do whatever they want? Got any thing to say when they start **** Monte? Other than awww man they shouldn't be doing that.

    Mornin AT. Thanks for the Pics on the Dam. They say this dam is one of the most dangerous in the world. That's with no warzone being around it. Now the Kurds say they have one side. ISIL the other. BO had to order continuous bombing of the Terrorists in order for the Kurds to manage this. My concern would be ISIL saying screw it and just blow the dam. Which will destroy most of What is left of Iraq.
