"None will perform combat missions"

Must be there to keep the Kurds in check. Convince them they are better living under Iraq/ Iran/ Turkish rule.

Wonder how long before the Kurds tell everyone else to pound sand and break away completely. Timing is ripe for this course of action and would add yet another dimension to this. Turkey and Iran will have yet more to worry about, as this fight moves from the shadows to main stream.

Wonder how Dear Leader will handle this?

Keeping the Kurds in check..... I've got a couple of old C//2/20 buds over there doing oilfield security. The Kurds have no worries, the Peshmerga has everything under control. I've got a feeling they may not welcome the "help."

Right you are Beef. The Kurds told us in 2004 that the only thing keeping them from cleaning out Mosul were coalition forces.
