Overpass Light Brigade San Diego and members of the local Kurdish community joined forces in bringing attention to the recent attacks by Turkey on Kurdish anti-ISIS forces in Syria and Iraq.
The fighting prowess of the Kurdish militia is legendary among US troops who have served in Iraq. Alexander Chafetz, a former US Marine, now a student of international politics at Columbia University has stated, “It is time for the United States to treat the Kurds like the allies that they are in our fight against ISIS. Kurdish forces have now fought their way to within 35 miles of Raqqa, ISIS’ de facto capital”. For this reason, America must persuade NATO member Turkey to call off the aerial attacks.
