There is a full-scale offensive, according to a message posted on the Security Council autonomy page on Twitter.

According to the Security Council, Iraqi security forces involved in an operation against the Kurds "Tanks, artillery, armored personnel carriers and American armored vehicles "Humvee."

Recall that the situation in the region has become aggravated after the September September 9 referendum on the independence of Kurdistan, which Baghdad does not recognize. In mid-October, clashes broke out between Iraqi troops and Kurdish Peshmerga forces. In Erbil, they offered to stop the fire and start a dialogue, expressing their readiness to freeze the results of the referendum on independence.

As noted in the Kurdish statement, the battles that have begun “have wreaked havoc on both sides and can lead to continuous bloodshed.” Baghdad has not yet responded to the initiative of autonomy.

    Are the friends of the fenders beating each other? Well, in principle, the Yankees were striving for this - the country will not be strong when there is a war in it. And our VKS will not help there.

    Apparently the United States is beginning to stir up a new conflict. Nursed, defended by the UN and other international organizations, the "opposition" is defeated on a par with ISIS. What to do? Only stir up new contradictions between their "allies." And the allies are not sorry - they knew that they were signing up to enter into a deal with the United States.

    Well, that’s how it will be sluggish schizophrenia. Continuing the conflict in that region is beneficial to the country-overseas, so they messed up the Kurds with a referendum, support, etc. etc. And now they will slowly throw up arms and equipment to the warring parties - if only they would continue to shoot each other, and they themselves will begin to develop oil fields.

    Now McCain will begin to gurgle. He had already threatened the Iraqis for using America’s weapons against the Kurds “incorrectly”. Only now, if up to 40% of Iraqi oil is extracted in Kirkuk province, then who will voluntarily give such a “pie” to some Kurds, behind whom American oil rigs are clearly sticking out.
