The City of Erbil after Saddam, before ISIS

This fascinating clip peeks at the people and culture of Iraq's Kurds.

The city of Erbil has been continuously inhabited for 8,000 years.

After the fall of Saddam Hussein, the US backed Kurdish government really started developing the city.

How, you ask?

Why, oil, of course!

And, of course, this was all before ISIS recent incursion into the area.

We have a feeling the Kurds will not be going down without a fight.

They have a lot to lose.
