Example text

Commander-in-chief dispatched troops to Turkey and Iraq. ”32 Yet, the United States eventually had its own reasons to share the European perspective, and aside from contributing forces, Wolfowitz recalls, “the British didn’t have a whole lot of influence,” and neither the British nor the French “ . . ”33 Their pressuring was undoubtedly helpful to their cause, and hurried things along, but was probably not decisive. S. government opened a dialogue with the Kurdish front. This was the end of a policy of no-contact with the Kurdish leadership adopted in 1988, when a visit to the State Department by Jalal Talabani provoked serious outcry from Ankara and Baghdad.

Using helicopter gunships, tanks, multiple rocket launchers, and heavy artillery, the Republican Guards took back the Kurdish villages. Within 72 hours a massive exodus of Kurdish residents was underway. Spurred on by memories of Saddam Hussein’s gas attacks in 1988, the Kurds moved in panicked droves into the mountains and toward the Turkish and Iranian borders. Nearly half of Iraq’s Kurds took flight. They fled only with what they could carry, some in cars and trucks and others by foot, and as they choked up the snow-covered mountain passes, vehicles were abandoned for lack of fuel or passable roads.

Simultaneously, Baghdad attempted to engineer population shifts, encouraging Arabs to move to Kurdish areas. During the Iran–Iraq war, the KDP led by Barzani openly supported Iran (where it had its headquarters), vainly hoping that they would obtain territory in return. The Iraqi government suffering military losses, tried to forge an agreement with the KDP. When that failed, in 1984, the Iraqi government came to an agreement with the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), a splinter faction of the KDP led by Jalal Talabani on an Autonomous Region that was larger and more generous than the 1970 agreement.
