Should we supply Kurdish soldiers with body armor?
We all know the reason our casualty rate in Iraq and Afghanistan is so low, is because we have armours that is effective in protecting our soldiers against Taliban and ISIS weapons. Otherwise our casualty rate would be much higher and civilian would have been drafted to fight in iraq and Afghanistan already. But Kurdish soldiers have no armors, making them easier to kill, should we supply Kurdish troops with infantry armors?
NO...we should let them fight their own battles...get ourselves out of the Middle East mess and spend that tax money on the people of US who are suffering and many homeless who desperately need that money.
If we stopped interfering in the local fights in the middle east - that place will soon sort its self out
