KRG Talks; Curing a Dead Man

This is the history of these vocational politicians. They have proved their uselessness in the past and now. This current situation, the pessimistic climate, and the crises will grow. The new generation, like us, will also suffer, if we do not embrace a radical change by putting an end to the corruption or at least limit it

The solution is not to renovating the shop that has been a place for trading the life and the history of our people under the title of Kurdish nationalism since the 1940s.

The solution is not the one that empowers and enhances the mafias, the clans, and the thugs to remain a curse to the current and the future generation under the name of statehood, revolution, and self-sufucient economy.

It is time to bury the bloody legacy. It is time to condemn the nationalist rhetoric in a way that no one ever dares to mention it, let alone take credit for it. It is time to redefine every concept through the genuine patriotic lenses. It is time for the new generation, the reasonable politicians, and the people of Kurdistan to assess the definition of Kurdish nationalism, mountain warriors, political imprisonment, revolutionary, Peshmerga, the flag, the homeland, sacred symbols, and bravery.

The legacy of the Kurdish revolution is full of shameful events and collapse such as becoming a proxy of the regional powers. Those who led this nation to the failure are still the one who rule the Region. Until we leave this century-old political tradition behind, we will not have a better future.

The solution is not to waste time by curing a dead man’s body. We cannot find a solution by sticking the broken parts of the current and old system together, but rather we need to eradicate the current system and introduce radical changes that can respond today’s challenges. We need to eliminate the slogans and promises adopted by the Kurdish political parties . We have to embrace a new political model that puts people of Kurdistan first;  value human dignity, achieve social justice and guarantee the rights of all ethnic and religious groups who are living in Kurdistan. 

To secure a better tomorrow, we need to shake the status quo which inherited many issues of the past. We have to get rid of the guardians of the old system, and the vocational politicians who have been misleading the public for over seven decades. These people are exploiting the public trust for political gains and they extend their grip to power through shortsighted policies.

I understand the path is not going to be easy at all. However, if we want to exterminate the old system and prevent these expired mentalities [guardians of the old system] and their children to decide our future, allowing them to fool us by Kurdish nationalism rhetoric and later present themselves as leaders “without alternatives,” we should start a really new beginning. We cannot change anything by moaning and complaining. Nothing can change through connecting broken pieces by glue. I have no doubt that the devastating politics will continue, and Kurdistan remain as a hostage to the proxy forces, civil war is in front of us. We should know that what these politicians are doing is corruption, looting and hiding billions of dollars of the public revenue of the current and the future generation. We should no longer believe their nationalism rhetoric.

This is the history of these vocational politicians. They have proved their uselessness in the past and now. This current situation, the pessimistic climate, and the crises will grow. The new generation, like us, will also suffer, if we do not embrace a radical change by putting an end to the corruption or at least limit it.

    It seams the writer came from the sky and by rising new slogans and bright topic will do change as the hushyar is belong to change group ,he want to condeam his background came from because he came from the moon and we all understanding nothing of this movement . It was better for him to read more about the kurdish movement and the mentality of the kurd , education , geografic of the area they live in and the neighborhood of the kurds with their polatic direction . I don’t agree with him because he himself came from the old system xand glue himself with bad glue to the change , i mean the writer will not give us garantee that he will not beak up any timr not to old system but to combat with any good direction that kurd movment is about to do and remove the mine like him from its path .he lost his mind because he is stragling to remove the KRG name to north of Iraq as he is hearing what Maliki and Fatlawi are about to do ,he is will like his two friend that the KRG is belong to Barzani and the reast is Iraqi brother as they did in 1966 and they are same movment since thst time to now but the kurdish movment are strong a d stronger time by time because the people know thier sick mentality and idea
