Dear Kurdish People,
Five years ago, I sent a letter to Prime Minister Erdogan, and the entire hierarchy of the Turkish military, explaining how Turkey should not attack the Kurds of northern Iraq, and instead, should make a strong peace with you.

Therefore, I posited that a strong independent Kurdish Northern Iraq was in Turkeys supreme self-interest.
As you are only too well aware, Iran has now swallowed up Iraq in at least its Shiite Southern aspects. But nothing has changed except the Iranian monster is now at your doorstep without an American Army to protect you.
You have also been delivered the miraculous blessing of Eastern Syria from the blood of the Sunni martyrs in Western Syria. This blessing is in no small part due to Turkish wisdom and sacrifice.
