But the Kurdish forces — the Pesh Merga — are willing to fight. The Arab forces, mainly Shi’a, fled andÂ not only fled, but left large amounts of advanced American weaponry, to ISIS. Furthermore, the Americans are rightly interested in rescuing, late and inadequate and therefore shameful as the effort has been, those most immediately threatened by the Sunni Arabs of ISIS, that is the Yazidis and Christians, and helping them get to relative safety in Kurdistan. But the Shi’a Arabs of Baghdad resent this. They are quick to sense favoritism, a favoritism that isn’t there, as yet, but should be. The Americans, the West, have a stake in a secure and independent Kurdistan, and no stake at all in preventing an ISIS onslaught on the Shj’a Arabs of Baghdad, who have plenty of weapons, a huge advantage in numbers, seasoned militias (some of thatÂ seasoning was acquired fighting the Americans who had freed them from Saddam Hussein), including that of Moqtada Al-Sadr. And, as the article notes, the Iranian air force is already operating over Iraq. Let them protect the Shi’a Arabs, and cause even deeper hatred of them among the world’s Sunnis.–Here.

The Genocide of the Yazidis
Since Obama declared the siege of Mt. Sinjar to be over, hundreds of men have been massacred, and women and children have been abducted to service the needs of IS.Â If this is success, I shudder to ask what is failure?Â (Allan West)
World attention hasÂ rivetedÂ on as many asÂ 40,000Â Yazidis (Yezidis), half of whom may beÂ children, trapped on Mount Sinjar, northwestern Iraq, without water or food, after beingÂ targetedÂ by the latest jihad rampages of theÂ “Islamic State” (ISIL) butchers. The Yazidis are an indigenous, ancient, pre-Islamic non-Muslim religious minority whose syncretic beliefs derive, in part, from Zoroastrianism.
Reports indicate that as perÂ
PresidentÂ Obama’sÂ addressÂ last (Thursday, 8/7/14) evening, today (Friday 8/8/14), the U.S. has begun bothÂ humanitarian air-dropsÂ to those refugees stranded onÂ Mount Sinjar, andÂ bombing runsÂ against ISIL positions outside Erbil, Kurdistan.
Sadly, ISIL’s current bloody attacks on the Yazidis reflect a continuum of religiously-inspired, chronic Islamic oppression of this minority group,interspersed with paroxysms of violence no less brutal than what is now taking place.
