GENEVA, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- Around 35,000 people have escaped from the Sinjar mountains in northwest Iraq -- where they were besieged by fighters from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) -- and have reached the Dohuk Governorate in the Kurdish region during the past 72 hours, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said Tuesday.

This is great news! There's still 20,000 to 30,000 still trapped but progress is being made.

Next, time to bomb the hell out of IS.

trouble is Swills:
the PTB who are supposed to bomb IS (alCIAduh, rebranded) are funding and training and using them
(Netanyahoo said recently we should support them I the NAZIs in the Ukraine working with the IDF I suppose)
the oil in that part of Iraq is earmarked for someone else and the light dusting is just a "border mark /pissing highest up the post" type of thing

I understand these folks were labeled as Christians for PR purposes, but they are apparently not- they are, I understand:
unlike the 20 percent Christian babies in Palestine which are....Christian...
were is their oppressor bombing I wonder?

Great News.

I posted the CNN report about it the other day, but this article contains much more information, which is good.

Here's hoping the Kurds can get back in there and finish the job. A helicopter actually crashed on the way to the mountain an hour or so ago...they say it was a result of technical failures.

Overall though, Iraq owes a lot to the Kurds.

Godspeed to them.

This seems all eerily planned to suck in the worlds sympathies......get their minds off gaza a while maybe.......the heat might be too much for Netanyahoo....Hamas is their invention....
