Coffee and Kurds

Posted on

Monday. A very unremarkable day. But that is not a bad thing. Really.

Coffee, a big chocolate chip cookie, news feeds and social sites. The stuff of mornings.

I am starting to wonder if the Kurds are kin to the Jews, they get betrayed so much by their ‘friends’. But we abandon them with hardly a thought or backward glance. They were useful when we fought in Iran, and useful when we fought in Syria.

I do admire them and wish the US still retained that same idealism and dedication that they have. But I fear that love of country and nationalism has become passè with the new generation. We never learn from history.

A couple of birthdays on facebook. Quick happy wishes to them. A comment on the blog. One new blog and a comment, and my morning chores on the ‘net are done.

The days roll by, more body parts start complaining. Snooks feeds her livestock and family. The sun continues to rise as the morning unfolds.

Good morning!

    I had to look this up: “Kurds are an Iranian ethnic group native to Western Asia. Geographically, this mostly mountainous area, known as Kurdistan includes southeastern Turkey, northwestern Iran, northern Iraq, and northern Syria.”

    Twitter is aflutter with a decision that Trump made and Sen. Graham is going to have a talk with him. Can someone explain in my kind of language (simple) what is going on?

    Good morning from rainy Florida!

      Essentially people who think we should be active in Middle East politics, and people who hate Trump are going to try and make hay with abandoning the Kurds.
      The Kurds in Turkey are an opposition and a conquered people. With the Iraq war, Kurds in Iraq have found their political voice again. The Kurds live in an area that encompasses Iraq, Iran and Turkey.
      The Democrats see it as something to damage Trump with. Normally they are not sympathetic to them.

    I haven’t seen the news in days so have no idea what is going on. I used to keep up with all this, but it doesn’t really seem all that important anymore. Hope you have a nice week Sir. ❤

        I am astounded too, but have come to expect it . There is no such thing as truth or morals to these people. And it seems no one is ever held accountable and that, to me, is the worst thing 😦
