Pesh­merge Shifted the Ten­den­cies of the Area

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Gazi Has­san

The only force in the Mid­dle East, which has the least and worst weaponry, is Pesh­merge. The force has had a long his­tory of strug­gle and re­sis­tance against the well-armed Iraqi army dur­ing the era of Sad­dam Hus­sein. Pesh­merge were the only na­tional (in­ter­nal) force tak­ing part in the op­er­a­tion of top­pling Sad­dam Hus­sein’s regime, and prac­ti­cally took part with the great­est in­ter­na­tional coali­tion led by the USA in the lib­er­a­tion of Iraq.

To­day, the Pesh­marga are the force that is fight­ing ISIS with the least mil­i­tary equip­ment and war­fare needs. So far Pesh­merge have suc­ceeded in wag­ing a great and cru­cial war of de­fence. Pesh­merge are not fight­ing for money and mak­ing a living, they’re not fight­ing for killing peo­ple and get­ting heav­enly re­wards in the other life, they’re not fight­ing to ex­tin­guish the lights of can­dles, but they are fight­ing for a home­land in which the cit­i­zens can live in peace. Pesh­merge are fight­ing for pros­per­ity of peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan in­clud­ing Kurds, Turk­men, Assyr­i­ans, Kil­dans and even Arabs and are de­fend­ing hu­man rights and free­dom. Pesh­merge bear a hu­man­i­tar­ian mes­sage, while the ter­ror­ists want to do ex­actly the op­po­site.

Now, Pesh­merge have be­come a cru­cial force and have shifted the di­rec­tions and ten­den­cies in the area. The ter­ror­ists are fight­ing to bring ter­ror, killing, re­turn­ing to the blind­ness and dark eras of bar­barism, but the Pesh­merges are fight­ing to achieve sta­bil­ity, co-ex­is­tence, devel­op­ment, dig­nity and the hap­pi­ness of peo­ple.

The in­ter­na­tional public opin­ion is ad­mit­ting that though Pesh­merge haven't been pro­vided enough weapons and ammunition, they’re wag­ing a de­ci­sive war. Pesh­merge have given around 999 mar­tyrs and over 4500 wounded so far. Pesh­merge changed the po­lit­i­cal plots and fac­tors of the fall of Mo­sul; they have changed the map of an in­ter­nal war into an in­ter­na­tional war. Pesh­merge shifted Bagh­dad’s po­lit­i­cal map in fa­vor of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion. They have even changed some re­gional plots and con­spir­a­cies from op­pos­ing the Kurds into sup­port­ing them

As a con­se­quence of the vic­to­ries of this war, Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s po­lit­i­cal, psy­cho­log­i­cal and mil­i­tary po­si­tion has strength­ened. It’s been of­fi­cially stated that Pesh­merges have cleaned 17000 square kilo­me­ter from ISIS so far, all of which are Kur­dis­tani ar­eas. Ad­min­is­tra­tively, they are con­trolled by Bagh­dad but it has been un­able to lib­er­ate them. That’s why the Chris­tians, Ezidis and Kakayis faced killing and ex­ter­mi­na­tion. But Pesh­merge man­aged to free those ar­eas fight­ing re­lent­lessly. So it’s not ac­cept­able to hand the des­tiny of res­i­dents of Shin­gal, Mo­sul plain, Makhmur, Kirkuk, Khur­matu, Saadiyah and Jalawla back to Bagh­dad Gov­ern­ment which could not pro­tect and guar­an­tee that the ter­ror­ists would not re­turn. The Pesh­merges forces not only de­feat the ter­ror­ists, but lib­er­ate the Kur­dis­tani ar­eas and will de­ter­mine their fu­ture sta­tus too.
