The Comrade wrote:kurds are mediocre because they don't have anything heavier than LMGs. if the US gave the kurds half the shit they gave the iraqi army (that ISIS now has) they'd have mopped up ISIS months ago.
actually, they're more than mediocre considering how long they've held off and pushed back ISIS with what little equipment they have.
And don't forget that they also held off Saddam's army back in the day with no supplies from the US at all. I'm all for giving the Kurds heavy weaponry, but I think the powers at be in Washington are afraid of the shitstorm that would cause with Turkey.
