yazidi people a religious minority considered by the extremist to be devil worshipers thousands of them have already fled fearing the sweeping advance of the islamic state would reach their homes a foreign ministers who agreed to supply arms to the kurdish forces to help them fight the militants. assesses what it all could lead to. hot on the heels of the u.s. and france the u.k. has announced its readiness to supply arms directly to kurdish forces which are trying to fight off brutal jihadists in northern iraq the u.k. has said we will also consider favorably any requests for supplies of arms we already shipping ammunition and supplies mother eastern european countries into a bill but there are fears the lessons of the past haven't been learnt it's a quick fix to something that you can arm a group or send a craft and bomb and so on that doesn't deal with the problem main problem is that the politicians don't plan ahead and was reacting to crises in syria the west

backed the rebels who then warped into the a ceramic state the very problem now being faced across the border in iraq and the two thousand and eleven western backed overthrow of colonel gadhafi led to three years of political chaos in libya with weapons again falling into the wrong hands and according to the un flooding west africa now the kurds need help fighting jihadists but what happens if they win with western weapons in hand to know on the kurdish point is testifies to a tokenistic and indeed a short term solution to a very real problem which is to fight back isis let's not forget that by all means the kurdish point is what is actually being encouraged is the breakup of iraq as a sovereign entity the kurds are desperate for independence from iraq and when they make state was a problem only in the south of the country the prospect of an autonomous north

began to look at spain a bowl last month one iraqi kurdish leader told local lawmakers to plan for an independence referendum and then we should be encouraging secession in in the middle east i think you sort of mean sort of having everything and it's quite risky independence would be complicated because it would create problems. turkey syria and of course iraq itself but to encourage them in this way is. potentially breaking in iraq government sources in the british media and reportedly came to stress that the u.k. is not moving towards direct military intervention in iraq and that sending arms is consistent with the government's response to a humanitarian crisis critics fear arming the kurds cared for silicate the breakup of iraq but for those in favor the need to stop the islamic states murderous campaign is so precious saying that leaders may have resigned themselves to

achieving their short term goal of driving terrorists out of northern iraq first and worrying about the long term consequences later boyko artsy london will carry neufeld a middle east journalist who's covered the region extensively believes the e.u. and us are not interested in totally crushing the islamic state they are reacting not pretty active in preventing actually the civilians of being attacked by isis groups and these isis troops they are well known where they are where they move they could be attacked before hand that they are not doing this. leads to the conclusion from my side that these isis groups working in some way in coordination with western interests this is syria is concerned that's
4:23 pm
where isis has grown over the last year or so and they did not do anything to stop isis in syria. those who want to get involved to stop isis in iraq are allied with isis in syria but we still should be doing everything we can to support the free syrian opposition who will continue to provide military assistance and advice to the iraqi government and kurdish forces as they battle these terrorists. more news from around the world now and thousands of protesters gathered in pakistan's capital islamabad after a three hundred kilometer march in support of opposition it is one group was led by politician imran carne whose violent a continuous sit in. to resign seven convoy was headed by probably antigovernment cleric who is calling for
