  •  The humanitarian situation on Sinjar mountain (0+ / 0-)

    was resolved - about 10 days ago.

    The world is bad enough as it is, you have no right to make it any worse.
    Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.

      Really couldn't believe that.

    •  That's my point (0+ / 0-)

      The article linked in the update says the troops could be there less than a week.

        And, the Sinjar area is now pretty much under the control of the PKK, who went there about 11 or 12 days ago from their bases in northeastern Iraq because the Peshmerga had fled.

        Or is the US military going to get in the middle of a possible PKK Peshmerga fight for control of the area?

        Now that would be stupid.

        But stupid seems to be the goal sometimes.
