Kurdish Batallion

Kurdish Batallion

J. loved the Kurds. Most of them are former Peshmerga - Kurdish militia who fought against Saddam & his regime. They've been "scrapping" for years. They're incredibly courageous fighters (even the women fought in the militia). J. worries that the next administration will pull out of Iraq without getting the job done, and these guys will be left to fend for themselves against the many factions in Iraq once again.
