    One of the few international issues of the last 40 years about which Joe Biden was not wrong.

    There are many of us who remember Henry Kissinger’s betrayal of the Kurds while implementing his amoral policy of appeasement of the Shah of Iran. We will never know just how many Kurds were slaughtered because of Henry Kissinger who has never been really held to account for the Kurdish blood on his hands.

    The State Department is undoubtedly concerned about this provocative development.

    “Baghdad Fumes as Kurds Ship Oil”

    A little too ironic a headline, don’t you think?

    [No, the preceding sentence was not in any way meant to complain about the headline or urge greater discretion in the future.]

    If the Kurds ever get the funding, as this oil would give them, they will carve a nation out Kurdish populated areas of not only Iraq, but Iran, Turkey, and Syria. Many military analysts equate the Kurds with the Gurkha, for the quality of the combat soldiers their cultures produce.
