The biggest question this raises is what does it mean for Iraqi Kurdistan?
The province of Nineveh with its capital Mosul has a massive Kurdish population.
The Kirkuk region is very Kurdish also, and I have no doubts the Kurds will destroy ISIS, they have a lot of oil wealth to spend on weapons and
However the bigger question is with Iraq falling into chaos, and the Iraqi Kurdistan region relatively peaceful and affluent then the potentiality
exists that the Kurds may retake Mosul and Kirkuk, and then annex part of the region to their state and declare Independence, many locals would
welcome this as they are ethnic Kurds or despise the Baghdad government.
We are watching the breakup of Iraq, the Kurds may be the ultimate victors, reclaiming lost land and finally gaining their hard won independance.
Very interesting times.
