Kurdish fighters have been engaging Islamic State group extremists in the region for some time to fight back attempts to seize and control territory and establish a terrorist nation.
The Kurds are typically more tolerant of Christianity and there are even reported Kurdish Christians. The Kurds have generally allowed Christians to co-exist alongside Muslims, which has become even more important in a time when certain Muslim populations are attempting to exterminate Christians from the area.
After U.S. forces pulled back, Kurds have been left exposed as organized Muslim terrorists began invading Kurdish territories in August 2014.
The Kurds have taken back a lot of territory lost by the Iraqi army to the Islamic State group. Some report the figure to be around 8,000 square miles of territory.
U.S. forces typically engage the enemy from a distance. Soldiers serving in the first Gulf War report rolling up to positions after U.S. tanks were spotted by enemies, finding hostiles surrendering due to the ability of U.S. tanks and helicopters to destroy an enemy from far distances, sometimes miles away.
Kurdish fighters lack the technology and military equipment to fight Muslim extremists the way the U.S. would, producing scenes like this as a reality that even some American troops wouldn’t have to face.
It would take considerably less time for U.S. forces to claim as much victory as the Kurds because of our technological advantages, if nothing else — but you can’t fault them for bravery.
