Iraqi Kurds accuse Iran-backed militias of genocide in Tuz Khumatu
The Kurdish PUK statement Wednesday accused the Iranian-backed Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi militia of burning and pillaging Tuz Khumatu after attacking and capturing the Kirkuk oil hub on Oct. 16. Since then, over 160,000 people from Kirkuk and its surrounding areas have been displaced to the provinces of Irbil and Sulaymani in the Kurdistan Region. The UN confirmed that tens of thousands of civilians had been displaced, and many killed.

Why do some people in the West think that Iran and its shiite proxies are not as barbaric as ISIS? They are the same. Whenever any side has an opportunity, they murder the civilians of the other side. We saw this in Lebanon (Christian Arabs vs. Muslim Arabs), in Syria (Suni vs. Shia) , and Iraq (Suni vs. Shia). And, of course, the Arabs bordering Israel (Hamas in Gaza and Hizbala in Lebanon) constantly firing rockets at innocent civilians in Israel. The people of the West have to wake up and realize we’re dealing with people with a different set of values than us. They have no value for human life. Not for ours, and not for theirs.
Catholic and Orthodox Arabs, to be specific, not Christian.
Pictures, or it didn’t happen.

As winter approaches, their major concern is how to stay warm. They need good shelter and health services.

“Iraq has shown zero signs of de-escalating their military aggression against the people of Kurdistan Region.”
The Kurds need to get to gather and build up a strong army to defend themselves….Otherwise they will always be persecuted…
They need to get their act together first and not get drawn into a fight that they will lose. Their chance will come when Israel acts and the Arabs are all running around in a panic.
Who’s going to work out a stable truce for that region? Is it possible? Probably to a degree only when the oil runs out or becomes irrelevant due to other energy sources. Meanwhile the big boys play out their wars at the expense of civilian men women and innocent children. Greed and pride are well at play in places where suffering & death rule.
