Have You Heard of the Peshmerga?

If you are interested in Iraq and haven’t yet read Michael Totten’s recent post on the Peshmerga, the Kurdish army, I recommend it highly. It’s called “An Army, Not a Militia.”
Truly inspiring. …Brought tears to my eyes, actually.
I bet the Kurds would love the movie 300, if they’ve not yet seen it. (I plan to see it soon myself.)
