Standing ovation to our second NATO member invader!

Al Tarrar

While Bush is regurgitating out on Saddam’s past time rhetoric, and busily emulating the deceased dictator’s strategies by allying himself with western tribes (insurgents) against Shiite armed forces (current primary resistance), the north has been blessed yet with another NATO invader to tackle ‘terror’ – who says war on terror is a monopoly?!, of which the regional government of Kurdistan is appeared to not being able to resolve. In fact, I have no recollection of any other time when the regional power of Kurdistan has resolved any issue especially when it comes to foreign invaders – Iran (Halabja outcome), USA and Turkey. And even when the going gets tough between the warring parties within the Kurdistan region, their leaders usually have the audacity to supplicate support from tyrannies like Saddam himself as they did in 1994 thru1996 just so they could keep their clans’ wealth intact.

And where does this union stand from the Turkish invasion? And why the Beshmarga (the Kurdish militias) are sitting on their butts begging for help from the central government while months back they were showing off their phallic spears as they fought the ‘insurgents’ in the streets of Baghdad? Can they not defend (politically or militarily) their own cherished federal territories against an invasion with out the help of a bigger power? Mr. Talabani suggested that the PKK to leave Iraq! Where to?

Let’s cut the chase. The regional powers of Kurdistan - include the communists, are perfunctory and simply incompetent, futile and in continuous quenching process for their thirst to greed tribal wealth and inherited powers.

The current Turkish dilemma has proven that our current invaders (Bush & co.) have long ago passed into becoming simply a threatening and destabilizing regional force that serves no one interests but itself (Saddam’s alter ego), the Kurds leaders have no use but to fight proxy wars and make the Kurdish people pay the dues, and the central government has no business in sovereignty non-whatsoever but sure they are turning into low-life feudalists.

If the Turks ever venture deeper into the north, would they be able to help free the hundreds of Kurdish political prisoners in Erbil and Sulaimaniya? What a novel thought!
