    The media campaign begins on Wednesday, November 9, 2005 here in the United States.

    Go here to read the ads:

    http://www.theotheriraq.com/

    It is my understanding that CNN has refused to run the ads.

    Nice. I don't forget they want to have their own separate country and are not too thrilled with the present situation. They do consider themselves the "other Iraq."

    LE,

    They are so upset that they are running ads thanking America for their freedom from tyranny.

    Joseph. Read my post again. I am not disagreeing. The fact remains, they are calling themselves the "other Iraq." They want their own country, no matter how things turn out in Baghdad. They have been carrying on, commerce, investments, cell phones, building small businesses, etc., ever since the no-fly zone was imposed after the chemical attack.

    Oh, notice they are calling themselves "Kurdistan." Could this be a Madison Avenue blitz because they are getting ready to form their own country? I can read between the lines. (wink, wink)

    I would not fit with the multicultureal, PC, antiAmerican mindset of cnn if they ran the adds. It is the same mindset that insist on showing us pictures of Iraqies killed by supposedly errent bombs dropped by the US. Even thought it could have been a iraqi missle. But pulled the pictures of dead 9/11 victims on day one. Show what makes us look bad, but not what makes them look bad.

    Ditto. They are most certainly welcome. I would like to also say thank you to the Kurds who have historically stood with the United States, even though, historically, we have repeatedly turned our backs on them and their subsequent suffering. Thank You for standing up for democracy. Thank You for being patient with us even though we were not perfect and have failed in the past. In the long run, it finally has paid off. Thank You and you're welcome.

    I think they have a lot to be thankful for, we imposed a no fly zone over there land and protected them from the revenge of Sadam for 10+years.

    That was after we encouraged them to rise up and fight Saddam and then abandoned them. I am glad we set up the no fly zone, but certainly, we are not perfect either and they have shown much loyalty to the United States and the cause of freedom in the past, for which, we should likewise, be thankful to them.

    I would support them making their own nation and calling it Kurdistan. I would also support that nation being given land and people back from Turkey.

    It would have been nice for them to thank the Dutch, Australian and Polish governments also, yet our losses were considerably less than the U.K or the U.S.

    Yes, I remember 'Operation Desertthekurds' executed successfully by George Bush Snr and John Major; glad that they don't seem to hold grudges.

    PS that wasn't the first time the Brits had promised them something and left them in the lurch - we did the same in the early 1920s too when, having secured the Mosul oilfield (and incidentally bombed the heck out of the Iraqi population) we then abandoned them to Attaturk's Turks.

    There really ought to have been a Kurdistan after WWI, but it's ticklish now.

    Turkey is majorly opposed to a separate Kurdistan because of their own separatist Kurds. One of the main conditions of their support and allowing the coalition to use their airspace is that there be no Kurdistan created.

    Iran is also opposed for the same reason as the Turks.
