I've always seen the Kurds as a people who were brutally decimated by the people in power in Iraq. Perhaps training them to better defend themselves
in such situations might not be a bad thing. Maybe if the oppressed are given the knowledge to defend themselves a foreign coalition would not be as
necessary. Wouldn't that keep everyone happy? No persecuted Kurds and no occupying Americans... ?
Yea, this has to do with the different factions of Islam/Muslim in Iraq. Should be interesting to see how they get along after the war, last I heard
the Kurds wanted to set up their own territory. I don;t doubt the Israelis are involved, however covertly.
What I found even more interesting was the statement made by the former Israeli Prime Minister (Barak) to our Vice President (Cheney), America has
lost in Iraq, the only issue is "choosing the size of your humiliation."
They are still Muslims, and it doesn't exactly look good for a Muslim group to state that they are receiving help from a Jewish country to defend
themselves against other Muslims. Can't fault them for denying it publicly.
