New Iraqi Kurdish militia goes after revenge for Peshmerga defeat

The “White Flags” is a new Iraqi Kurdish militia which has begun striking Iraqi government and military targets in the eastern Iraq province of Tuz Khumatu and Saladin province in the north. Both were ruled by the Kurdish regional government up until October, when the Iraqi army and pro-Iranian Shiite militias defeated the Peshmerga army and captured them. The White Flags militia is circulating leaflets in the two provinces with the message: “We are a group that was formed to seek vengeance for the Kurds. We will not allow the security forces to be present in your district.”

      Well, they’re not going to. Once Kim Jong Erdogan finds competent military leaders to replace the thousands of officers he’s sacked (or arrested) over the course of his tyranny, he’ll be anxious to exterminate them all.

    The travesty and betrayal the Kurds have been subjected to is inconceivable. When it suited Western powers to benefit from these gallant people, who in good faith and trust, gave their all to fight against terrorists, they were embraced.
    But now suddenly, they’re being shamefully betrayed by most everyone.
    About Turkey, what a pity the good opposition in Turkey failed to overthrow Erdogan.
    Good people and countries should stand up for what is right and not betray friends and allies.
    The Kurds must get their country and live in recognition and security, just like Israel and all civilized countries and people should and must.
