Do you get many Kurds with blonde hair?

Have you ever played Metal Gear Solid?

If you have, you might know where I'm going with this.

In MGS1 there's a character called Sniper Wolf who is a Kurd from Iraq. And she's blonde. I figure she dyed her hair for better camouflage (the game is set in Alaska).

Yes I am aware of Syria.

First off the PKK, a stupid organisation in the view point of most Kurds. Just like Nelson Mandela was a member of the terrorist unit of the ANC and ordered over a dozen attacks killing multiple, the same goes for the leader of the PKK. However, Mandela did more right then wrong, and even admitted to his crimes (his jail sentence). They were/are both trying to get rid of Aparthidism, but the PKK is more about gaining power than equality which is why its hated. Bare in mind the PKK only formed due to the abuse and inequality among the Kurdish minority in Turkey (14 million people), where they couldn't even speak their own language. Most people including I are happy to see the PKK disabandonment as we don't agree with the principles, although Apartheid still exists. Mandela even rejected his peace prize by Turkey because of its human rights abuses and racism.

YPG formed towards the beginning of this year. Kurds refused to take part in the the Syrian Civil War for both the rebels and the state, and so they were innocently slaughtered. However, the rebels slaughtered and kidnapped hundreds and thousands of Kurds for this reason in the northern cities and Aleppo, and so it was necessary to prevent the innocent killing of Christians, Kurds and other minorities by the terrorist ridden rebels. The most important role of the YPG is to allow the safe passage of refugees into Iraq, there are over 200'000 Syrian Kurds in Iraq now, all paid for by the Kurdish Regional Government as the UN is only willing to help refugees in Turkey.

Whats your opinion of the two acronyms you mentioned?
Well, I am Kurd from Erbil. Your view point about PKK is totally wrong, majority of kurds in Turkey support PKK as a true rebel group fight for freedom. Before 1992, Sadam's regime and jis allies called PDK and PUK Terrorists only because the fought for freedom and today they both rule the country. So dont be mistaken that 80% of kurds in iraq are with PKK and you rarely find a kurd who like turkey. YPG is PKK branch who protect kurds in Syria.

Still most arabs revere Saddam for few reasons: 1- he was known as LION OF ARAB as his army was the beat among arabic armies and because of his support to Palestine.
2- he was agains SHIA MUSLIMS so a great amount of Sunnis were supporting that back then and some now.
