Recently leaders of Baghdad declared victory over Islamic State...labeling it an Iraqi victory when the Kurds did all the heavy lifting. But for the Kurds...there would not be any so-called victory.
The Kurds did their share because they wished to carve out there own nation-state...a nation that has been a quasi-nation even though divided and merged after World War One. But...the Kurds had best not trust any promise made by the American military...and...keep whatever land they have grabbed...never delivering any control to the Baghdad team. Not ever!
