  1. When ISIS invaded Iraq the Iraqi forces in Sinjar fled and left the civilians undefended. Many civilians were slaughtered and then the Peshmerga came to help those who managed to escape to the Sinjar mountains, and today the Peshmerga as still there helping the civilians. Iraq claims this area belongs to Iraq yet Iraq forces did nothing for the civilians and left them to be slaughtered by ISIS, and due to that I feel that the Sinjar area should belong to the Peshmerga and the civilians that actually live there.

  2. The Baghdad Government does not want to give them long range heavy weapons that the US wants to send to them and all weapons to them must go through the Baghdad Government.
