I do not know about some Iranian participation,

We knew about the actions that Iraq intended to take, it did not come as a surprise. There are a number of things that must be done within the framework of the constitution and which have not yet been implemented,

    The Americans, something completely lower than the plinth, went down. Due to short-term interests, it is impossible to betray those with whom I have collaborated for years. This is not politics.

    some kind of porridge: “Kurds have the right to complain” and right there: “there are a number of things that need to be done within the framework of the constitution” (about the reaction of Baghdad). and the Yankees live like hedgehogs in the fog.

    I saw the Fox News channel the other day. News means. It’s written in capital letters. TWO BIG VICTURES IN THE MIDDLE EAST. This is they about the capture of Racca and Kirkuk. And the fact that their Kurds won in Raqqa over their (but that’s not certain) terrorists, and their Iraqis won in Kirkuk (we assume that Iran didn’t participate anyway - yeah, well) over their Kurds outside the brackets of course. She is such an advocacy.
