        I don’t understand in any way.
        Canada for NATO or against?
        It seems that it’s there, then it’s clear why it’s crap against Russia, it helps the Ukrainians.
        But the Kurds are against the Turks ...
        At least they would decide who they are. And then hang out, Mr. as in an ice hole ...

    They are not so interested in the Kurds as the fear of losing oil contracts. Fighters with terror from Canada.
    The shortest joke.

      What oil contracts do Canadians have in northern Iraq?
      Interest in the Kurds, and more precisely in the supply of weapons to them, instilled in the "senior neighbor", to the delight of the Turks. They really have serious interest and contracts in northern Iraq.
      How, against whom and where, will these weapons and trained fighters be used in the future?
      The idea of ​​creating a “great Kurdistan” has not disappeared.

          ExxonMobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, Italian ENI in a consortium with American Occidental Petroleum and South Korean Kogas, China National offshore Oil Corp and others. These are the main players in the Iraqi oil market. Canadians there didn’t smell!

        You don’t know the question, what to comment on ??? Nothing. What do Turkish instructors of these Iraqi Kurds train themselves ?? The Turkish military base is in Iraqi Kurdistan. The Turks themselves periodically gave them weapons. And they have very decent attitude. All facilities are built by Turkish companies , all purchased goods in Iraqi Kurdistan are from Turkey and they themselves quietly sell their oil through Turkey.

          Nothing. The Kurds have 5 main parties and a dozen sympathizers, and all have their own "police".
          So which of them do they train, a connoisseur of "Middle Eastern politics"? Understand at your leisure!
          Weapons are the most popular goods in this region. Learn materiel, theorist! hi

          "....... Turkey already had troops in northern Iraq, and no one objected to this. I mean various bases about 30 kilometers from the Turkish border in the province of Dahuk. 2 people are stationed there on an ongoing basis and battle tanks. In addition, the Turkish army regularly raids into Iraqi Kurdistan in pursuit of the PKK. The reinforcements that protested in Baghdad include only 000 people, albeit with armored vehicles around which there is always a fuss. Baghdad is deeply outraged by the fact that the Bashik camp where the reinforcements were sent (instructors of the Turkish special forces were already there) provides direct support to the former governor of Mosul Atil al-Nujafi, who was removed from office by the Iraqi authorities.In addition, although Iraq applied for international assistance in the fight against IS, he did not intend to than asking Turkey, which came “on its own initiative.” Everything happens with the more or less tacit consent of the regional government of Kurdistan, headed by M Asud Barzani.
          - Does Turkey have oil or territorial interests in northern Iraq?

          - Yes and no. In Iraqi Kurdistan, and especially in the Erbil region, there really are oil wells. But I think that the Turks have long abandoned the idea of ​​occupying the region and crushing the production of hydrocarbons for themselves. They prefer to give it up to the Kurds and are content to ensure the delivery of oil to Iskenderun Bay, taking a considerable percentage from this.
          - The main and priority task of Turkey is the solution of the Kurdish problem. Since the time of the first war in the Persian Gulf, Ankara has been forced to put up with the existence of autonomous Kurdish territory in northern Iraq. She is afraid that something similar may occur in northern Syria. Now, by the way, everything goes to this.
          There is no unity among the Kurds themselves. In Iraq alone, in addition to the Democratic Party of Kurdistan, Masoud Barzani, there is the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan Jalal Talabani. Iraqi President Fuad Masum refers to the second installment. PUK maintains excellent relations with Tehran, while the KDP is more oriented towards Ankara (and Syrian Kurdistan), although the original ideology is somewhat obscured by the pressure of pronounced nationalism.
          They have allies in Iran and Syria. The workers' party of Kurdistan, which for the most part is considered by the international community as a terrorist movement, follows its own path and causes dissatisfaction with the KDP and PUK. She intervenes in Syria and Iraq with the tacit consent of the West (but not Turkey). And its rear bases are located near the Kandil mountains in northern Iraq, close to the Iranian and Turkish borders. This means that they are in turn fired by the Turks and Iranians.

          Today, the main hope of the PKK (and its allied Syrian Democratic Union) is to form a single territorial entity along the Syrian-Turkish border. "......

    Yes, almost all of this equipment will emerge in Syria (assistants). Since October, the entire coalition, plus the rest, cannot take Mosul. And how much has Igilovtsev left from Masul to Syria. Masul, as a bridgehead for Syria.
