Complicated

The Middle East is a lot more complicated than some lefty Twitter pundits might think.

One sympathises with the refugees in northern Iraq, and one is entirely repulsed by the ISIS (IS? ISL?) fanatics.

But the Kurds do not have a blameless history.

They were complicit in the Armenian genocide carried out by the Turks one hundred years ago.

There are no good guys and no bad guys in the Middle East.
