Saudis

The Kurds

Fierce Kurdish tribesmen held Alexander’s cavalry for a while.

But they have been an irritation to the borders

around Turkey and Iraq, or so it seems.

The Kurds have been the indispensable shield against the Isis.

But why has the Americans abandoned the Kurds

to the Turks who are vowed to obliterate them?

Well it is not exactly an abandonment–

it is a trade-off.

The Americans traded the Turks off

for the Saudis,

or some Saudi that we know.

Sad to say!

(most probably the Kurds will now negotiate with Assad)
