        Thats what’s funny (but not ha clinton dix funny) per the article, ‘greeted as liberators’ is part of the official plan. (The reliance on the local population ‘rising up’ when the pressure hits a tipping point)

        And theres nothing out there that anyone knows what to do with de facto Kurd sovereignty (except screw over the Kurds, yet again, at the behest of the Arabs and the Turks)Report
