than the United States. Besides, after what happened to the Hmong, South Vietnamese, Cambodians,  Saddam Hussein himself, and I don’t know how many others, it is clear folly for anyone to trust the American Empire to keep its word to protect them.

I would never have made any longterm commitment to the Kurds in the first place, and am opposed to any military involvement to protect them now. I always ask two questions: One, would I fight for this cause?, and Two, would I ask my stepsons to fight for this cause? If the answer to either one is No, then I’m opposed to American military intervention.
