    ISIS massacres 90 Yazidis in Northern Iraq

    Aug 15, 2014 Fox News

    News from Northern Iraq today that 90 Yazidis were massacred today. Men were slaughtered and women were made slaves. This just a day after President Obama claimed the mission was ended and was successful. Really, "Mission Accomplished" well Obama lied and people died This is very sad. These people did nothing to ISIS. Just tragic.

    Heya Sarge. The good news is.....the Kurds got out over 45k. That would be the Kurds inside Syria. Who knew the Terrorists have to be engaged on the ground to clear a path.


    Although.....now that BO has proven to be Boy Blunder again. This wont go over to well those Christians from Other countries. Myself....I hope those Latins start to take notice.

    And the US is providing arms to the Kurds that have the PKK (a recognised terror group) fighting along side of them, see any problems with that? Here we go again.

    Heya Monte. Well the Kurds say they need heavier arms to counter the Terrorists that are a threat to all around them. You don't have any trouble with the French saying they will arm them immediately now, do ya?

    They were first spotted in the Iraqi Kurdish city of Erbil on August 8, just as US President Barack Obama announced he had authorised airstrikes in northern Iraq against ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria) targets.

    In their distinctive khaki-grey uniforms, their ranks including battle-hardened female fighters – a rarity in most parts of the Middle East – they took up positions in and around Erbil, including the Sami Abdulrahman Park, a sprawling green expanse in the heart of the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.

    As the ISIS onslaught inched dangerously close to Erbil, the fighters from the PKK (Kurdistan Worker’s Party) -- a Marxist group that waged a 30-year armed struggle against the Turkish state -- had arrived to help their Iraqi brethren in their fight against the Islamist terrorists.

    Thanks for the link.

    In any case, the violent phase of the PKK conflict has ended, so it's unlikely that this will cause regional instability. Allowing the PKK to indirectly pick up weapons and fight alongside Peshmerga is preferable to allowing ISIS to run rampant.

    The whole reason IS is the problem that they are now, is that they were strengthened in part by arms being sent into Syria by the US. So lets just further the problem along.
