Just had a long conversation with my dad who told me there’s a big possibility that Kurdistan will be its own country very soon. I asked him why/how and he said that the relationship between the Kurdish government and Central Iraqi government is very bad right now to the point where they started firing at each other yesterday. So my dad has his gun ready. I asked him what happens if they bomb Darbandikhan [the village where my family lives and where I visited] and he said “We’ll bomb them back.”
This should be interesting.
