Kurdish soldiers in Iraqi army refuse to fight against Arabs

Kurdish soldiers in the Iraqi army have deserted after they were told they would be deployed to Baghdad as part of George Bush’s troop “surge”.

Many of the soldiers, drawn from the mountains rather than the urban areas, do not speak Arabic and did not want to be part of a sectarian war.

Others said they joined the army in order to defend the country and did not want to be accused of collaborating with the occupation.
