Kurds charge Iranian Guards in Iraqi military buildup against them

“We have intelligence that the Iranian army and Revolutionary Guards are among the Iraqi army and Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Military Units) militia attacking us,” said Shwan Shamerani, commander of the Peshmerga second brigade in Kirkuk Saturday. He spoke in the course of a major buildup of Peshmerga and Iraqi units in and around the Kirkuk oil center for the last few days, and a reported Iraqi government ultimatum to the Peshmerga to surrender its positions in the city or face an attack. Kurdish commanders accuse the Iraqi army of cooperating with “foreign forces.”

    It’s all about the oil. I say let’s whack the Iranian surrogates and make them wish they stayed in their box.
    This will add a note of seriousness we take about their nuclear program.
