What You Need to Know About the Current Conflict in Kurdistan

After the fall of Kirkuk, thousands of Kurds demonstrated outside the U.S. Consulate in Erbil. They protested the lack of U.S. Response to the Iraqi army and Shiite militias military campaign against the Kurdish government. It could be one of the most important conflicts in the world today, the current fighting between the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) and the Iraqi government.  It might seem confusing and the stakes might seem unclear but it’s very important to understand the dynamics going on; the principal players; why this conflict could lead to a much greater regional war and what it means to Israel.
Here’s an interview CBN News did with Jonathan Spyer, the Director of the Rubin Center at the Interdisciplinary Center at Herzliya (IDC).  Spyer explains why this current situation is so significant and why the United States plays the pivotal role in this Middle East game of thrones.
