Kurds and Ansar Al-Aslam

Another false premise endemic to whiny Iraqi blog-sites:
1. The Invasion of Iraq was unjustified because no WMDs were found.
2. Ansar Al-Aslam, is a Kurdish-supported , Al Qaeda-supported, anti-American Islamo-facist group.

Number 2. is...True. As far as that goes. Ansar Al-Aslam was based in Kurdish territory and was supported by some Kurds. It also received support from Iran and Saddam and Al Qaeda (but of course that is no proof of a link between Saddam and international terrorists. Ho ho!).

However, Kurds were fighting to drive out Ansar Al-Aslam for two years before the US entered Iraq and have only recently driven them from Kurdish territory with the help of US forces. And now Kurds who were driven from that area by Ansar Al-Aslam are returning home. Here is a beautiful photo essay of the Kurdish area in question thanks to Fayrouz.

(Fayrouz does not have comments enabled on her blog, Live From Dallas,so even though she is an odd-duck among the Jarrars and Riverbend, she is on the subject list for CryMeARiverbend II.
