Kurdish Peshmerga Death Squads Attack Kurdish Parliament as Dictator Barzani Resigns

(After the sham referendum and Iraqi forces retaking the oil fields of Kirkuk, the dictator Barzani was stripped of power by the Kurdish parliament last week. He and his vice president and staff had been ruling illegally since 2015. Looks like the rest of the government of “Iraqi Kurdistan” have decided to oust him before the Iraqis move in and wipe the Kurds out completely. Israel and the U.S. are their only backers in this conflict and neither will take up arms to support them in this conflict.

Greater Kurdistan is falling apart.)

In a way, I kinda feel sorry for the scumbags.

  2. I hope the Peshmerga angry over Massoud stepping down at least stall for a while confrontations with the Iraqi Central Government.
