    Bafel Talabani blamed the losses on the decision of the Kurdish leadership to go ahead with a referendum on independence, calling it a “colossal mistake” saying a US proposal to postpone the referendum by two years should have been accepted and would have avoided the current situation, in which Iraqi federal forces have taken back control of areas controlled by Kurds since 2014

    Regardless of the referendum, it was a pre-planned attack to regain the areas controlled by the Kurdish forces during its fight with ISIS. This makes me ponder, would any Arab tell the Kurds “come I will assist you in invading the Arab lands!!”
    It is a disgrace and shameful to betray your fellow citizens. History has repeated itself.

    The Kurds must follow the path of the Jews to organize and unite against not just one enemy, but three enemies.
