Pictures like this represents our real civilized Kurdish culture to the world. while a picture of hundreds of men with no signs of women and children does the opposite and doesn't belong to our culture.

I am proud of my dear brothers and sisters in Bashur (Southern Kurdistan) who participated in the referendum and voted "YES"! God bless them all! I wish I could be there to vote alongside with them! Long Live Kurdistan and the Kurds! Long Live President Barzani!

Do they clean up after their picnic, or leave a heap of garbage behind them, like scavenging coyotes?
