Kurds: From Oppressed to Oppressors
The Kurds are often called the largest population in the world without a country. 40 million of them live in the mountainous terrain of Turkey, Syria, Iran, and Iraq — and they’ve lived under oppression in each of those countries for most of the last century. On this edition, correspondent Aaron Glantz takes an in depth look at the six million Kurds in Iraq, their years of suffering under Saddam Hussein’s regime, and their drive towards an independent country in the future. – www.radioproject.org
