Screwed by the U.S. and now armed by Russia
- The U.S. has always claimed to be on the side of the Kurds, but Obama starved them of modern weapons in their fight against ISIS.
- But better, the Kurds have been bombed over and over with U.S. jets and U.S. weapons flown by NATO member Turkey.
- Now we see Russia moving in and arming the Kurds. Naturally the U.S. is "concerned", but why? I thought we supported the Kurds fighting ISIS? Our foreign policy is a steaming pile of lies and crap if anyone ever cared to look at it.
