Hamma Mirwaisi was exposed to the oppression of Kurds while still a youth, as his education was frequently interrupted by Iraqi government harassment. Forbidden from entering university in 1968, he had little choice but to join the peshmerga (freedom fighter) forces of Mustafa Barzani from 1968 to 1975 in their battles against the Iraqi Government forces. Although the conflict was resolved by treaty in 1975, he foresaw reprisals by Saddam Hussein's secret service against his extended family. He took his wife and two children to Iran, and in 1976 they entered the US as legal refugees, settling in Valley City, North Dakota. Mirwaisi completed BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering at the University of North Dakota. That led to a technical career, beginning in 1982 at the Sperry Corporation in Minneapolis. Sperry's merger with Unisys Corporation caused the end of his program, and he took up Ph.D. studies in Radio-Frequency (RF) Engineering at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Eventually he returned to work at Honeywell, where he completed his career, becoming the Senior RF Engineer on the Air Force Satellite Communication program. The tragedy of the Kurds intervened again in 1995. His sister and her two-year-old daughter were drowned while escaping Saddam Hussein's reprisals against the Kurds for their rebellion during the first Gulf War. He returned to Kurdish affairs in 2004, when the US Army called on him to serve as an interpreter in the second Gulf War. At the end of that assignment, he began seeking American corporate sponsors for the rebuilding of Kurdistan. However, the Barzanis, who controlled the Kurdistan Regional Government, saw the initiative as a scheme to undermine their own influence and expelled Mirwaisi from Iraq. The doors to government and corporate sponsorship of works in Kurdistan (at least those that did not include a Barzani rake-off) slammed shut. Since then, Mirwaisi has devoted his efforts to spreading the word about Kurdish history and culture through writing and speaking. After his first book, Return of the Medes, he was invited to serve for a year as an honorary member of the Kurdistan National Congress (KNK), a Kurdish parliament in exile that sits in Brussels. He is the author of many other books on Kurdish affairs The History of the Caucasian People: The Civilizations without Hatred ... https://www.amazon.com/History-Caucasian-People-Civilizations-without/dp/1543172784/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_enc

What Drives Kurdish Forces to Defeat Turkish Army and Their Islamic terrorist ally in Rajo (Raju)-Syria? The majority of Kurds joined Abdullah Ocalan's teaching. They are willing to be an ally of the US based on mutual interest. But the ignorant President Donald Trump is creating Vietnam scenario by supporting corrupt Barzani and Talabani while claiming that he is going to use the YPJ, YPG, and QSD of Kurdish forces. Using people is not the good statement.

Why Erdogan & Barzani are against the US interest in the Middle East? Erdogan and Barzani are not capable to wage war against Iran. And Iran is going to get out of control sooner than later unless the Lords of the Satanic organization are giving up the old ideas and joining the new US administration to fight Iran internally. As long as the Lords of the Satanic organization are helping Erdogan and Barzani kind, the Islamic Republic of Iran power is increasing...

Steve Bannon the Chief Strategist Without Strategy! If anyone wants to change America, he or she must start with the political party to be different from the current political parties. If anyone wants to use white Caucasian people or black people as the base for being elected, they must teach them true histories about where they come from and what happened to them in America. The people with knowledge are not going to change their mind by advertising.

Turkey's War on Kurdish People in Afrin-Syria? Today is day 11 of Turkey's War on Kurdish People in Afrin. The US and allies are not making any move against Turkey's President Erdogan aggression because they are afraid that his governments are going to dump NATO allies for good by joining Russian, Iran, and Syria. You can say the same thing about the Russian, Iran, and Syrian alliances too.

Why is Islamic JIHAD AGAINST THE KURDS? The Islamic religions are nothing but a political organization. During the era of the so-called Prophet Muhammad, politics did not exist. Religions were used to organize people. Muhammad ibn Abdullah as one of the descendants of Abraham by blood established Islamic religion to unite Arabs against Sassanid Kurdish Empire and Roman Italian Empire.

Why Are Turkish Forces Bombing Kurdish City of Afrin without Objection? It is time for the people in the US to support Kurdish people now. The people in the US must understand that the US Governments are not protecting Kurdish people. And the US Government of President Donald Trump must be forced by the people in the US to support Kurdish people in Syria and Turkey against aggressions of Turks in the region.

Can YPG and YPJ of Kurdish forces Beat Turkish Army? Turkish President Erdogan is not happy to see peaceful region for Kurds in Syria or Iraq while fighting Kurdish people within Turkish border too. The Turkish Armed Forces are attacking few thousand members of the YPG and YPJ Kurdish forces in the 'Afrin-Syria region'. The US government declared that it is helping Kurds from the East of 'Euphrates River' in Syria to Iraq and Turkey borders.

Why Must Kurds Have to Review the Success of America? After almost 42 years of exile in the USA, I want to point out few facts for the followers of Abdullah Ocalan to take note of it. George Washington led American revolutionary forces for American liberation from the UK Empire. American people did not have philosopher like Abdullah Ocalan to write the plan for them. But most of their educated people grow up with UK system and ideologies to have respect for laws and order.
