US Vice President Joe Biden and Iraqi Kurdistan leader Masood Barzani during a telephone conversation agreed to continue the attack on the positions of the IG, reports RIA News White House post.




"Biden congratulated the Kurdish militia on a successful operation against the IG in the area of ​​the city of Sinjar, which cut an important terrorist transport channel," the release said.

"They stressed that this pressure (on the IG) will continue in the following weeks and months," the White House said.

The Pentagon said earlier that “the Iraqi Kurdish militia (Peshmerga), with the support of a coalition led by the United States, launched from the air on a strategically important highway between the Islamic State’s terrorist group Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in northern Iraq.”

      As in the 2nd World War! When they saw that Russia was rushing, they began to help, to smear! And then they will turn into their victory!
      : "The valiant American army defeated the evil IGO! Thanks to Russia and other coalition countries for their support and help in this bloody warrior!"

          IG - the card is broken. The United States urgently needs a new ally in Syria to consolidate its presence at least. And as a maximum, keep Erdogan’s eggs and try number 2 to overthrow Assad. For this they need the Kurds. I don’t know what the states promised them, but Assad urgently needs to agree with the Kurds on the borders of their future autonomy.

        I think that instead of thanks to Russia, they are leading new sanctions against Russia and this will be their gratitude.

          And if now we look at Turkey’s actions regarding the Kurds through the prism of the 51 article of the UN Charter. Is there any reason to free Constantinople? And lay pipes to Europe through its territory

            it didn’t work out in the 19th century when there were 10 times less Turks. and now there are only 2 times less of them, and the male combat-ready population is likely to have parity.

    “Biden congratulated the Kurdish militia on the successful operation against the IS in the area of ​​Sinjar, which cut off the important transport channel of terrorists”

    How the tone of the Americans has changed. And now they are beginning to lick some places and the Kurds, if only to naive the confusion, cover your tracks.

      Americans all year and a half of the military campaign
      support from the air Iraqi Kurds and
      helped them recapture ALL of their cities captured by IS,
      and in January they helped repel the IS attack (and smash it to smithereens) near the city of Kobani.

      Therefore, Iraqi Kurds willingly help the Americans.

      Erdogan in the subject, because Iraqi Kurds Masouda Barzani - allies of Turkey.
      and Biden pretends to be the same "expert" as most of the local strategists, publicly pretending to be barzanists, that the Yezidis are one hell. and the fact that some are not friendly with the others, to put it mildly, remains with the ether.

    Today, the Kurds control the oil-bearing areas. And the fact that under ISIS so far, the Kurds will soon take it. This ghoul pulled himself up to lead. Can substitute at any time.

      Actually, he talked about the PKK, and in particular those who hold the north of Syria.

      no You are deeply mistaken! They take Borzani on a short leash, then they will take him into a strict collar. His problems are not acidic - he took the power and his family does not want to share it, although he has already run out of elections according to the “democratic” procedures in the territory controlled by him. He clearly understood that he would lose and even began to press hard on local opponents.

    He said that he ALWAYS supported Russia in the fight against the igil. I just didn’t tell anyone about it ...
    Directly some great chancellor.
    -And the chancellor knows?
    - You see, he has not decided yet whether he knows or not. Now, if the operation ends in failure, he will say that he did not know about this adventure. And if it is successful, then everything was under control even at the preparation stage ...

    And here is an incomprehensible (or rather even very understandable) US policy. We seem to sympathize with the Iraqi Kurds and even help with weapons (although the IS is often dropped), we don’t notice the Syrian ones, and we consider the Kurds in Turkish territory to be terrorists. Even in this, the deceitfulness of US policy is clearly visible.

    Yeah; and Erdogan considers the PKK a terrorist organization. And at the same time, is a NATO and an ally of the United States. And how are Iraqi Kurds different from Turkish or Syrian?

    Yes, yes, we know the history of the Second World War: here they also want to bite off their piece from Syria, trying to plant their puppets in the occupied territories. Well, let's see.

    Sinjar was once surrendered to the Ishilovites with the consent of Masoud Barzani. moreover, igil, dpk, turks and states constantly coordinate their actions, this was also observed when taking the mosul.
    Kurds and Yezidis, to put it mildly, do not get along, Barzani recalls the Yezidis and calls them Kurds only when it is beneficial, and these statements are addressed to the world community, which has no leisure to understand any ethno-religious subtleties. in the same way, Iran “accepted” the Alawites into Shiites for political reasons, because it seems like you want to be the leader of the Shiite world, and then you’ve gotten counted on two, even Azerbaijan sent them nafig.

    The Kurds are fighting, and Biden "agreed." This is the division of labor in the Jewish world order.
