Washington’s Despicable Hypocrisy Towards the Kurds

 

At Asia Times today, I explain why the entire world (excepting Israel) has lined up against the Kurds:

Except for the State of Israel and the Kingdom of Jordan, there isn’t one state in Western Asia that is viable inside its present borders at a 20-year horizon. All the powers with interests in the region want to kick the problem down the road, and that is why the whole world (excepting Israel) wants to abort an independence referendum to be held by Iraq’s eight million Kurds on Sept. 25.

I just want to add that our foreign policy elite is a pack of hypocritical, yellow-bellied, two-faced, fork-tongued, lying polecats who wouldn’t acknowledge the truth if it were tattooed on their ophidian foreheads.

    So sad, but not entirely unexpected.

    Sock it to ’em, Spengler! In the 50 years since Vietnam, the State Department is still squandering our treasure and the lives of our military on corrupt losers in the name of a phantom stability. Like the Israelis, the Kurds are the real deal. Here are some of their wonder women doing a precision folk dance. If there is a hijab in the hall, I have yet to spot one.

    These morons forget that it was we who declared our independence from the British Empire.

      This is not the first time the Americans (understand State Department) betrayed the Kurds.

  • Sums it up nicely: “hypocritical, yellow-bellied, two-faced, fork-tongued, lying polecats who wouldn’t acknowledge the truth if it were tattooed on their ophidian foreheads.”
