Kurds ask the world for military hardware

The political leader of Iraq's Kurds, Massoud Barzani, has appealed for international military aid to help defeat Islamist militants.The plea came as the US launched a fourth round of air strikes targeting Islamic State (IS) fighters near Irbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan. IS, formerly known as Isis, has seized swathes of territory in northern Iraq.Kurdish forces said they had regained control of two towns in Nineveh province after heavy fighting.

Oh, what a complicated web we have weaved. How would Turkey respond to weaponry being given to the Kurds ? How would the Kurds survive without such weaponry ?

Its no surprise that Washington has yet to decide how to respond to the request, which has been in their inbox for months.
