Dear Editor:

A U.S. Ally Rolls the Dice, and Loses” article (10/17) highlighted that the “fall of Kirkuk…endangered the very survival of existing Kurdish autonomy.”

During Iraq’s aggression against the Kurds, the U.S. government maintained a neutral stance. This American non-action will represent a dark stain for our foreign policy and our historical support of “good” over “evil.”

The Kurds were our best allies in the fight against ISIS. Going forward, they represent a crucial ally in our existential fight to stop Iranian imperialism in the Middle East and then throughout the world. Iran has promised “Death to America.”

It is finally time to devise an American foreign policy that is designed to save ourselves and defeat Iran, the number one terror organization that plagues the world today.


Kenneth Abramowitz
