The Turkish government has finally allowed Kurds from Iraq to send troops into surrounded Kobani, and hopefully, end the prospect of mass murder and shots of heads being chopped off. Turkish President Recep Erdogan has finally bowed to international pressure and allowed those from his hated enemies to send armed troops who will fight against ISIS. There is something ironic that after the famed invasion of George Bush in 2003, the only Iraqis who want to fight for democracy are the Kurds. This is one group of Muslims who hate ISIS and will not flee from armed encounters with the fanatics of hate. Hopefully, with additional troops, bombings of ISIS forces, and more weapons of war, a Muslim army will fight, and defeat ISIS. The question remains as to why is this group of Muslims ready to fight against ISIS, while other Muslim Iraq soldiers ripped off their uniforms and fled for their lives when ISIS appeared?
The answer is simple. Kurds have a government which is supported by the population. Kurds believe in their right to have such a government and will fight for it. Most Iraqis only have the government that was installed by former President Bush, a government of kleptomaniacs whose only thought was money and power. The government of Nuri al-Maliki spent its time making life miserable for Sunnis and turned them toward the only alternative of ISIS. Get a government in Baghdad that seeks honesty and respect for all Iraqis, and ISIS will shortly disappear.
