So far, Kurdish Forces are arguably the most effective force battling ISIS. With the timid and extremely careful approach from the Western countries not wanting to be marred in yet another military conflict, Peshmerga forces in Iraq and YPG forces in Syria, both from the Kurdish region, have been the most effective front containing ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
In this video, we see Peshmerga, PKK (aka YPG, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, a militant organization fighting for freedom), and American forces battling ISIS South of Kirkuk in South-Kurdistan. The fighters in traditional Kurdish military clothing are members of the PKK. The other soldiers in normal military uniforms are Peshmerga and American Special Operation Forces.
Should the U.S. commit more traditional combat troops to join the fight against ISIS? Sound off and share your opinions and comments in the section below.
