Why Kurdish warlords bombed the Yazidis?…update
In an interview on Iraqi Alsharqiya TV, Yazidis leader Anwar Maaouya accused the Iraqi government on plotting the attack on the Yazidis saying: There evidence of Iraqi governemnt involvement to attack Yazidis.
Were the Kurdish warlords (Barazani and Talabani) behind the bombing of the Yazidia’s villages in Sinjar?
Seems weird suggestion, but let’s follow the events:
On 2-August-’07, Haaretz reported
The new pipeline would take oil from the Kirkuk area, where some 40 percent of Iraqi oil is produced, and transport it via Mosul, and then across Jordan to Israel.
Which is an old issue since 2003 but thing wasn’t yet under the control (in other words: Kurdish militias weren’t ready)
Just few days before Haaretz published their report, on 30–07-’07 news came from Kurdistan that:
The Iraqi government asked to send thousands of Kurds militias [Peshmargas] spread in the areas of Kirkuk and Mosul to protect oil pipelines, Kurdish authority has provided the required number.
After two weeks from the above report and on 13-August-’07:
After bombing the Yezidi, all they needed to do is add Al-Qaeda name to it, and revive the old plan of sending Kurdish Militias to Mosul to “protect the Yezidi” and you get it; the oil pipelines are virtually secured until the Jordanian borders.
Somebody answer this:
