  1. I stopped reading after “A survey conducted out by the American University of Kurdistan…”
    Why didn’t they survey what “ALL” the Iraqi want??? That’s telling!!!

    • Yes its telling. To You its not even allowed to ask like that.

      The Bagdads only care about taking as much oil as possible. Best is a pipeline and ni kurds at all…

  2. Very difficult to get the right numbers. You just do Your best. But dont forget th many refuges and if they say same thing.

    I think so – more or less – and hope so. You have to unite kurds more. This is a good step showing facts. Sometimes the top of the voters is more a yea as a “we hope”.
