American University in Iraq Full of Kurds
Within the Kurdish region of Iraq Americans are welcome... The Kudrish they are so enthusiastic, they want to ask us all about the United States and speak English with you. They are just wonderful, I (Dawn Dekle ) feel very welcome here.Why was it we didn't give the Kurds their own state again? I mean they do more with their freedom than any of the rest we've tried to help. At this time 50% of the students in American University in the Kurdish region are female.
The Kurds, they rock.
Update: I missed the NPR link, added and also Dawn Dekle who is interviewed is the President of the University which is located in Sulaymaniyah.
