Two US partners fighting ISIS are now fighting each other

raqi Security Forces staged an assault on the oil-rich city of Kirkuk on Monday morning, forcing Kurdish Peshmerga forces to withdraw from the area.

Civilians began to flee the area as the assault began. Some reports claim that the Peshmerga units withdrew instead of fighting back, though Kurdish officials reported some exchanges of fire. Government forces targeted Kirkuk's rich oil fields and a military air base. Pictures posted on social media showed massive lines of vehicles attempting to flee the attack.

The Peshmerga command referred to the operation as "a war against the Kurds." Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi ordered the assault due to concerns that the country was in danger of "partition." Kurdish fighters seized the city from Islamic State forces three years ago after the Iraqi military failed to push back against the terrorist group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what is the US government going to do now?!?

Is there ANYONE in the Bowels of Power in the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, who can think a scenario through to its logical conclusion?!?

This was confirmed yesterday at antiwar.com in the following article:

Pentagon backs away as US allies perpare to battle in Iraqi Kurdistan

The article goes on to clarify the Pentagon's categorisation of the initial skirmishes as a simple"misunderstanding."

"MISUNDERSTANDING", my ASTROLABE; WE ARE LOOKING AT FULLY FLEDGED CIVIL WAR IN IRAQ RIGHT NOW!

OF COURSE, the Iraqi military wanted Kirkuk back from the Kurds, as it has one of the most oil-rich portions of the Middle East.

I cannot believe the complete insanity of the timing of this referendum by the Kurdish leadership, and what they thought their chances would be of miraculously having this happen, without Iraq fighting back.

I am just shaking my head here, at the Kurdish, Iraqi, and US leadership, or rather the absence thereof.
