Preparations Underway for Arrival of Italian Chinook Helicopters to KRG




The Ministry of Peshmerga of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) is preparing to receive helicopters.


On his 11th February visit to Erbil, Italian defence chief Luigi Binelli Manetelli told a press conference that as well as standard and heavy weapons, Italy has agreed to send four Chinook helicopters to assist Peshmerga forces battling Islamic State (IS) militants.


Peshmerga Ministry Spokesman Halgord Hikmat exclusively told BasNews, “We are fully prepared to receive the Italian helicopters in Kurdistan.”


“An Italian team of experts is currently in Kurdistan to identify a base for the helicopters and train Peshmerga to use them,” Hikmat added.


Italy has already sent 200 advisors to train Peshmerga. “Italy also has sent rockets which the Peshmerga are training to use.”


Since the start of clashes with IS, a global coalition, including the US, Canada, Australia and European countries, has supported the Peshmerga with military aid.

Why are they only arming Kurds and nobody else? Because Israel wants them to? |0|

You know ISIS's methods are bad and I disagree with them. But you have to agree that only language will prevent West from trying to hegemonize the Arab Sunni people is force. They support Kurds and Shia because they have no problem while they bomb us Arab Sunnis and we still have sick leaders supporting them. I believe it's time for open war, these people don't understand that we want to be left alone. I wouldn't mind seeing Libyan militants crossing into Italy and conquer it. These scumbags need to feel pain in order to quit supporting murder against Palestinians and Arab Sunnis.

Arabs need to man up, you won't achieve freedom and self determination from west and Shia until you confront them.

Iran and Shia are taking over all your countries and West bombs Syrian rebels and supports all bombing/occupation of Palestinians. And all Arabs are afraid of resisting this because they might be called terrorists. You're going to be called terrorist anyways because you're Muslim. Shia aren't Muslim they follow a Persian cult. That's why west support them.

Christians need to stop making excuses for their selves. They dint have to support Israel and or support hegemony. They do so because they're barbaric and hateful and have crusader ideology. So what's wrong with Arabs, its time to give them what they want invade Europe and brutalize them . Make them beg for forgiveness and don't have any mercy. They need to be shocked and they need to go through something tough to end their bullshit.

Falcon, the Muslims came close to conquering Italy before and failed. Then the Crusades happened. Europe is not the aggressors here, in fact the Europeans until after WWII ruled most of what is Iraq, Lebanon, Israel, and Egypt. It was not until after the war that the Europeans granted freedom to the people of these nations. Since that point, it seems to have been a hot bed of activity.

Granted freedom? They drew lines and created artitical states. There was one state prior to that. Muslims back then are not as motivated as some Muslims today. If these problems continue in the region groups like ISIS will expand and they can conquer Italy. Even if there's a crusade. Muslims already believe there will be big war between them and Romans(European race) in the end times.

I have every faith that the Kurds will take out those terrorists without leaving one out. They may not be that skilled in tactical battles but the Kurds have an indomitable fighting spirit, a key factor that has helped them win wars in their favor. They may be Muslims but they're not of the same ilk as those who joined IS camps.

Maybe the West's interest in fighting isn't defeating them. They might have ulterior motives. Could be what they really want is a sectarian war [Shia's vs Sunnis]. A war that will keep inhabitants of the Middle East busy fighting each other for decades. I remember last year some Shia's said that once ISIS was defeated, it would be the turn of Shia's to cleanse the regions they'd have liberated by killing Sunni's whom they'll label extremists. All this stuff creates more enmity between Shia's and Sunnis and what we should expect to see in the not-so-distant future is more bloodier war in the Middle East.
