I appear on Russian TV Washington DC with Ed Schultz on September 25th.  The Iraqi Kurds are voting unofficially for independence from Iraq.  They want it. They've always wanted it. And yet, the Iraqi central government, if you can call it such, is opposed. So are the Turks, the Iranians, the Russians and the United States. Rarely have so many with different agendas stood in opposition.

And yet, the Kurds are right. They deserve independence. They've earned it. They were screwed by the European powers after WWI with the Treaty of Versailles and have frequently been decimated by the countries in which they have found themselves.

This will be an interesting conversation.
