Isn’t it a bit ironic, that Obama wants armed militiamen to take up the battle on the ground for their freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan against an oppressive government?
Yet, when you use the word militia in America, it’s quite the opposite. American militia are considered anti-government radicals, who should NOT be armed.
Dwekh Nawsha operates alongside Kurdish peshmerga forces to protect Christian villages on the frontline in Nineveh province.
“These are some of the only towns in Nineveh where church bells ring. In every other town the bells have gone silent, and that’s unacceptable,” said Brett, who has “The King of Nineveh” written in Arabic on the front of his army vest.
The name of the militia is Dwekh Nawsha, and is Aramaic for “self-sacrifice.”
These freedom fighters are standing up and doing the job their government will not; they are going to fight the Islamic State, an oppressive new government regime.
