text Peace could have been given by Ted Rudow III, MA
Assyria in Iraq, of course part of Syria today is part of that. Also Northern Iraq was a part of Assyria, and it was always fighting with its neighbours. First was Assyria, then Babylon, where did the Medes and Persians originate. Persia, they changed the name to Iran. I think it was only after World War 2 that they started to change the names of all these countries.

text Turkey agrees to allow Peshmerga from Iraq into Kobane by S
Turkey to allow Kurdish PUK troops from Iraq to pass Turkey and enter Kobane. YPG is not asking for this support. Indeed, it may turn into an occupation of revolutionary Kobane after ISIL has been kicked out, since Iraqi Kurdish PUK is not as left-leaning and democratic as the YPG. Kurdish militias in Iraq are unfortunately not revolutionary, which is why they enjoy endless US and EU support. PUK: Kurdish Patriotic Union.
