The Associated Press is reporting the the United States is now providing arms to the Kurds in their death struggle against the scourge of ISIS/ISIL. FInally.
Time and again, we've fumbled the ball when it came to the Kurdish people. This was evident, particularly, in our failure to call for a Kurdish homeland state following the 2003 Iraqi war. This single act may have solved a number of issues as well as creating a solid ally in a region where the world desperately needs stability. Hopefully, this action will build goodwill with the a people who have the iron will to stare down the horde and leave them to be carrion in the sands.
It can't be stated enough that ISIS/ISIL must not only be stopped, they must be completely destroyed beyond an ability to reconstitute or continue. Their bloodlust will not be satisfied and their is no depths to their dark imaginations as attested to by the imagery coming from the region. So far, I've not posted any of the graphic images of the their handiwork. It is hard for even seasoned Marines to view. This evidence confirms the stories of just what they've done to children. Hell, and the Lake of Fire hold a special place for the bottom-dwellers who do these things to the Lord's littlest lambs.
I'd invite your continued prayers for the faithful of the region who remain in harm's way. Pray too for the Yazidis and pray for the Kurds.
