    If you watch the video they got a chick in it. Most women are not going to take the risk.

    The kurds are very western… a easy way to look at them is they are basically arab jews. They are smart understand tech, understand free market business and are hated by all the arabs around them.

    Yes they do have problems but I would rate them about the same level of retardation as your avg eurotard.

    Don’t you ever get tired of hate? Most people around the world, most individuals just want to live their lives and be with their family. Not everything is about politics or religion.

    Another ignorant statement by another bigoted dumb-ass. They do not wear the Burqa in Iraq. Most women wear the hijab if that. I have seen a few women wear full covering but it’s rare because Iraq, unlike Afghanistan, is relatively secular.

    Their is a reason why socialist is the standard throughout the world…. your ignorant and simplistic view of the world doesn’t conform to the facts, reality, history of the world the rest of us live in.

    It’s called a sense of humor. PC has got you all uptight. Relax. Have you ever tried to run in a burqa? Hilarious.

  15. Where are the women runners? Are women allowed in this event?

    aah, there are none so blind..

    they didn’t film all 5,000 runners, that’s impossible, but watch the film
    clip again, i saw a few women, there’s also a few more pictured here..
