Back to Kurdistan

On the BBC World Service, Michael Goldfarb – author of Ahmad’s War, Ahmad’s Peace: Surviving Under Saddam and Dying in the New Iraq – writes and talks about returning to Kurdistan five years after the outbreak of war in Iraq,

Erbil, Kurdistan, northern Iraq – every foreign correspondent has one place that gets under the skin more than others, for me that place is Kurdistan. Actually, Kurdistan doesn’t exist but regardless of what country the Kurdish lands are in, whether Turkey or Iran or Iraq it just gets to me. link
