On September 25, the Kurds of Iraqi Kurdistan will have a referendum on whether Iraqi Kurdistan needs to break from the rest of Iraq. Stephen believes it will pass with 80 to 90% support.

In this fiery podcast, Stephen addresses the failures of the current and former U.S. administrations with regards to the Kurds, and shares his policy recommendations.
