U.S. rejects Kurdistanís call for mediation

WASHINGTON,— Heather Nauert, does not deem it “necessary ” to appoint an envoy to help resolve tensions between Iraq and previously fully autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government. Peshmerga yielded control of Kirkuk, to Quds Force-Bagdad quislings.

“So, I mean, that’s a very high level of support that we have trying to help facilitate things—for things to improve in Iraq. I don’t know that there’s that much more that we can do,”...

Monday, the Kurds issued a call to the entire international community to “intervene with the Government of Iraq to end its collective measures against the people and government of the Kurdistan Region.”

I feel so sorry for the Kurds. Betrayed by everyone, every time.

Right you are.

They were useful while they were battling ISIS.

Now they are told they can go to hell.

I had hoped that Trump at least would give some thought to giving them some real support, but I guess the Globalists surrounding him are Caliphatists too.

Heather?

Well, there’s your problem.

Kurds are going to die on the altar of PC.

Sometime around November, 2001, State Department spokesman
Boucher answered a reporter's question saying that a
US attack on Al Queda was different from an Israeli
response to an attack by Hamas.  Essentially, he
said that blowing up Americans was different from
blowing up Israelis. 

That was the beginning of my suspicions that Bush
had ties and priorities that did not match his rhetoric.

Not only have we dumped on the Kurds, but we
have been willing to let Israelis die while
suppressing their ability to defend themselves.
Obama sucked up to Turkey while crapping
all over Tel Aviv.  Republicans haven't
been the allies we claim to be, either.

Well that was monday......keep in mind there are several high level significant meetings happening throughout the area regarding Syria which has a direct impact on the Kurds... The US may just be stalling to see how these develop. U.S. has rejected Kurdistan’s Call for Special Mediation because there's already high level people involved..... U.S. had already sent Brett McGurk, to speak to both Iraqi and Kurdish officials...... Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, has also reached out to Kurdish and Iraqi leadership. I say these things need to come together in a timely fashion.....

I hope you are right.

I shan’t be holding my breath that anything good will come of it, though.

Sorry to see the US betraying one of their most valiant allies in that region.

Sad, very sad.
