Peshmerge, Symbol of a Nation and Freedom Ever
Up to the days of the brutal and savage attacks of ISIS, Peshmerge were just a national Kurdish force. Now they have become heroes and a well-known force. Their bravery and strong will of resistance are commended all over the world. They’re not just defeating a brutal and barbarous force, but they’ve become bearers of the banners of freedom. The Peshmarge have really put the name of Kurdistan and the Kurdish on the world map.
During the recent months, Peshmerge have been able to bolster the national spirit across all parts of Kurdistan, especially in the west part of the greater Kurdistan. Through his strategic decisions and his nationwide leadership, President Massoud Barzani mobilized Peshmerge to help other parts of Kurdistan to achieve a brighter future. In addition, as a democratic Kurdistani who defends the freedom of all components of Kurdistan, Barzani is leading a great international war on terror.
Last Thursday, Peshmerge managed to liberate a large swathe of land in Zumar, even reaching the Shingal Mount. This was a great shift in the balance of power, which seems to be the beginning of the ISIS’s end, because it doesn’t only damage the morale of savage terrorists, but also cuts a strategic way to Syria and undermines their authority in the ArabSunni populated areas. With the advance of Peshmerge, ISIS, which have become a threat to everyone in particular Ezidi Kurds, Shabaks and Christians for several months, will be wiped out from the Kurdish soil.
Peshmerge are the only trusted force by the international coalition. This is a guarantee for the political future of Kurdistan. So if Peshmerge were only symbol of libration of Kurdistan in the past, now they’re symbol of a new era, the era of fighting terrorism and protecting freedom across the world. The freedom with its modern meaning which guarantees every individual's right to protection and welfare as we see in the western countries.
Peshmerge are not only saving the lives of people in Kurdistan, but they’re breaking a force and pushing them back to their original destination where they were created. Peshmerge create a new identity for a new era. An identity that has a message and asks why the free people of Europe, the US, Australia, Canada and China endeavor to root out any tendency of political violence and extremism. They create an identity that how Peshmerge, with the simplest types of weaponry, defeat a brutal and barbarous force of ISIS. Now the question is will Kurdistan remain the same country prior to the fall of Mosul? What’s more important, will Peshmerge accept the reality of Kurdistan being part of the central government in Baghdad, or will Kurdistan emerge as a new independent state and entity in a new era?
The new developments promise optimism. The national identity of the Kurds should be accepted and officially recognized. The new reality is the result of the precious sacrifices of the Peshmarge under the wise leadership of President Barzani. The renowned Kurdish forces inspire hope and pride in its people and the world as well.
