The US has warned of unrest in Iraq’s Kurdish region in the run-up to Monday’s separation referendum. Preparations for the vote are in full swing despite international calls to delay it. Iraq’s government maintains the referendum is “illegal”, while Turkey and Iran are warning of consequences.

Al Jazeera’s Hoda Abdel-Hamid reports from Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.

  1. ood luck to the beloved Kurdish people ..
    You deserve a large country that will contain all the 35 million you,
    A state that will also be established in Syria, Iran, Turkey …
    Everywhere there are Kurds there is your right to the state,
    Long live the great Kurdistan that will gain independence in all districts,
    Inshallah God will be with you

  2. Capture all Leader of Kurds with Silent attack before they setting up power, because USA want Kurd as USA Colonial… Kurd Become Betray, So We Know When Iraq attack by USA in 2003, Kurdistan Support USA and Joint military to killed Iraqi force .. Bed Typical of Kurd

  4. On the place where Kurdistan will begin country there is a lot of oil resources
    This is easy target for Erdogan, sadly that's could be new reasons for global war in Middle East

  5. "Independence"…? The same "independence" that was given to the people of basically any Nation Globally that was colonized..
    Afterwards forced into the corporatized/banking system age slavery.. wtf up people..They never left India, nor Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines etc etc etc.. We ourselves are of a Corporate mark once we gain a birth certificate.. drivers license etc. We are a corporate number on a piece of paper with no rights. This is Globalization..Much more BS to come.
    One great big festering neon distraction , to keep us all occupied and divided..
    Social control=orchestrated confusion "If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it" -E. Bernay's

  6. Way to go KURDS.. You deserve your own Country.. Those who are educated know well what happened after WW2 and how you were betrayed from having your own Country.. and those who know History know that the KURDISH ppl have been in those regions for Thousand of years !!
