Re: Another civil war brewing in Iraq?

So it's kicking off now? I was looking at Vice on youtube yesterday and they were with the kurdish forces outside of kirkuk. Could see the shia militia forces just across way and dust on the horizon that the kurds were saying were armoured units closing in. Apparently the kurds were bringing in rei...

Re: NZ College Rugby - National Top Four

I notice that Hutt High has a really bad male to female student ratio: way more males than females. So I looked at the stats for schools with more females than males.

Stream poach from Porirua too, so do Scots. Hutt High have no chance.

I'm surprised to see Te Aute so low in the Top 100 rankings at 89th. Te Aute haven't been a force in rugby for years - their roll is tiny.

Re: Another civil war brewing in Iraq?

I think the Kurds should bide their time, they have to contend with a weak central government, so they can do pretty much what they like now. If they go for statehood, Turkey, Arab Iraq, and Iran will do everything in their power to stop them achieving this.
