I think they’re mostly killing Kurds.
Let’s hope they end up like two fools in a gun fight with .22s, each mortally wounded with multiple rounds and still able to keep shooting at the other until they kill each other. If we prove any aid it should only be to the weaker side so it can keep on killing the other.
