Will the United States Sell Out the Kurds Again and Forfeit a Loyal Ally?


 By Dr. Saman Shali:

ئه م نوستراوه به زماني كوردى


August 27,2015

The history of contact between the United States and the Kurds goes way back to President Woodrow Wilson. In January 1918, for the first time the US supported the Kurds' rights within the Ottoman Empire in the 14 points by President Wilson. But because the US did not have an important role in the area, they did not give any weight to the US declaration in support of the Kurds.

The Kurds have been sold out at least three times during this century and these betrayals still burn vividly in the mind of the Kurds. In 1946 the Republic of Mahabad was sacrificed for the Shah of Iran with US blessing; in 1975 the Kurdish Revaluation was sacrificed for the Shah of Iran and Saddam Hussein with US support; and in February 1991, the US president asked the Kurds and the Shiites to rise up and rebel against the Iraqi government. In response to this request, they did so. At the time, most politicians in the U.S. said that this request did not signal a change in US policy towards the Kurds, but was rather an attempt to weaken the Iraqi government. After the uprising and the victory of the US army, the United States washed their hands of the Kurds, leaving them to face their fate alone.

Kurds and the Persian Nuke Deal چاپ ارسال به دوست

kani-xulam.jpgKurds and the Persian Nuke Deal

July 22,2015

The so-called nuclear “peace” agreement negotiated with Iran has generated lots of diplomatic niceties—but little substance.

President Barzani of little Kurdistan hoped for “peace” in the region while his Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani, a graduate of University of Tehran no less, envisioned “better economic ties” with Iran.

Diplomatic baloney aside, what do ordinary Kurds think of the deal?

What should they think?

They should certainly realize that this great “deal” missed by only one day the 26th anniversary of the ruthless assassination of a Kurdish diplomat by Iranian “peace” emissaries—only miles from the Palais Coburg, the Viennese hotel, where the “hopeful” nuclear pact was just inked.

Abdul Rahman Ghassemlou, head of Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI), thought he was negotiating a peace deal with his Persian interlocutors on July 13, 1989, in Vienna, Austria.

But his Iranian counterparts had murder on their minds.

After luring him to meet with them in an apartment of a turncoat Kurd, they viciously slaughtered him and his bodyguards along with the traitor Kurd—shot them all point-blank like sitting ducks.

This brutal fact was conveniently disregarded in the Austrian capital.

It was also missing from the triumphant comments following the newest “peace” announcement.

It was a thousand miles away from the jubilant mind of French foreign minister Laurent Fabius, flashing smiles and flamboyantly hoping that their deal would stand the test of time like the Bastille Day—the independence day of France—and usher an era of peace in the world.
