The fighting in the Middle East has been an ongoing struggle during our lifetimes and does not show signs of letting up. With the continued atrocities committed by ISIS in the region of Iraq, Syria and elsewhere many American and other Western soldiers have felt the call to battle even in the absence of US or NATO intervention. Many of us have wanted to go and do our part to help especially with the Kurds, namely their military branch the Peshmerga. While there have been many to go many more have not for various reasons. @peshmerganor is one of those to go and has done some of the best documentation during his time. Give him a follow and help support his journey to aid those that are working to rid the world of the evil that exists.

Getting ready for the push towards Mosul. I've been here for almost two years now. And it's time to start thinking about going home. I'm nearly worn out physically, and at times, mentally. I've also come to realize that I've become disillusioned about a lot of things. The world isn't as black and white as I first thought... and it's becoming increasingly harder to separate the good guys from the bad ones. There will never be peace in the Middle East. Never. And a unified Kurdistan? I can't see that happening. Corruption and infighting will prevent this dream from becoming a reality and it breaks my heart. The kurds are their own worst enemy, is a saying down here. And I now understand why. Whatever reasons I might have had for coming down here and fight in the first place, are gone now. I will however do my part in the upcoming offensive. I will keep going untill we are at the gates of Mosul, and if we are needed inside the city, I will go there too. But then I'm done fighting. I'm going home. Someone is waiting for me there...
