Kurdish Troops May Help Secure Baghdad


Following the killing of 110 Iraqis in the first three days of last week, there emerged from both Sunni and Shia leaders in Baghdad a proposal which would have been inconceivable not long ago – deploying Kurdish troops in Baghdad to maintain order and keep the peace between Sunni and Shia Arab factions.

I doubt I’m the only one who wouldn’t mind seeing some Iraqis help keep the Iraqis in order. This is a sensitive move, but if it happens and it works, it will be HUGE.


  1. Believe it when I see it. I wouldn’t be surprised that if this idea came to fuition, they’d just end up being targets for every dissatisfied moron with an AK, or some IED experience, like anyone else trying to keep the piece there.
