    The Iraqis just can’t catch a break, they’ve been at war or oppressed for generations. Obama kicked them into the gutter as unworthy to share his sidewalk, and now they are the designated battlefield for the Jihadists, a war that is likely to last for years. It’s unsurprising the Kurds are carving off what they want, when the rest of Iraq is so dysfunctional.

    All through the Bush years the Iraqi Kurds minded their own business and got on with building what for the most part only exists in the imagination of deluded neo-conservatives and progressives – a moderate Muslim polity. Almost no one noticed back then, but this time the Israelis have had the chutzpah to point out this strange phenomena to our Secretary of State. How droll.

      This genie won’t go back into the bottle when they are done with military service.
