The US has begun shipping arms and ammunition to the Iraqi Kurdish forces fighting IS, a State Department spokeswoman has confirmed.
“We’re working with the government of Iraq to increasingly and very quickly get urgently needed arms to the Kurds,” Marie Harf told CNN.
People are always telling me "the Kurds really are the good guys!!!" And, ok, fine, but that's not really the point. The point is our only strategy ever is to increase the probability of killing. Because weapons.
