“This is the day the Kurds were always afraid of. As the Americans leave, once again we are left isolated and face to face with Baghdad.”
Once again the Kurds make the strategic mistake of forgetting that whether it is the United States, the English or the Israelis, all of these will leave the Middle East sooner or later. How the Kurds have been treated is wrong, but they should never have trusted America and Israel. I think eventually they will go through an experience similar to what happened in Georgia where the shock reaches them that they are not in the West, and they cannot rely on people who are only using them as a means to an end and not an end in itself.
