in response to reader comment: US firepower at work -- killing Kurds

And now, just maybe, just maybe, after the interview with the American Administrative Chief Executive attempts to convince that Islam is the religion of peace, that as the Assyrians of yesteryear's times of the ancients tried to overrun Israel, and later Judah, we may now get a sense of the nations' chapters of Isaiah's pronouncements of judgments, as they relate to what is happening now.

Substitute the spirit of the ancient Assyrians in one's thinking and see if it does not relate to what ISIS/ISIL/IS mentality as they try to reframe the Middle East in their imagery? And the inhabitants of this coastland will say in that day, 'Behold, this is what has happened to those in whom we hoped and to whom we fled for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria! And we, how shall we escape?'" (Isaiah 20:6)

The Kurds are in the middle of it for the moment, attempting to separate out a region of their own in direct competition with ISIS/ISIL/IS, whose range of conquests include much of a central region once conquered by the Assyrians. But the Kurds are in the way of a bigger picture, one that has the portending of a greater conflict than any who are looking might imagine, but appear not to see; and the American Administrative Chief Executive attempts to convince all that 'Islam is the religion of peace?'

The world is indeed watching, but does it want to see the reality set before it; or should there be a different discernment of the reality that is unfolding while thousands of lives are dispensed with for the cause as heralded by the black flag armies that announce all of it is for the Islamic deity?

And still we have the interview with the American Administrative Chief Executive, attempting to convince that Islam is the religion of peace.
