US Border Patrol sent to close Kurdistan's border with Iran

This is a funny report from L'Orient Le Jour. The US is dispatching US Border Patrol agents to Kurdistan and telling the Kurds they have to secure their border with Iran, which the Kurds really have no desire to do, since, in addition to importing most fresh fruits and vegetables from Iran, they enjoy friendly relations with the Islamic Republic.

The Americans want the Kurds to use scanners and sniffer dogs and God know what all. Fat chance.
