The current president of Iraq's Kurdistan region, Massoud Barzani, have been acting as chief of Barzani tribe instead of being Kurdish people leader. His religious family has been leader of Barzani tribe for three generation. Barzani Sheik’s numbered around 1000 Men according to Massoud Barzani. The followers of Barzani Sheik are called Sufi and they are numbered less than twenty thousand men. Barzani tribe does not counting women as human.

Mullah Mustafa Barzani father of Massoud Barzani created KDP organization to recruit other Kurds for his revolution against Iraqi Arab Government. His father passed away in 1979 and Massoud with his brother Idris Barzani assume leadership jointly. Idris Barzani die suddenlydie in mysterious way after few years and Massoud Barzani become undisputable dictator over Barzani tribe and Kurdish people.

In time Massoud Barzani transformed KDP from political party to mafia organization and he collected large amount of wealth illegally. Since American invasion of Iraq in 2003 Barzani Sheik family and later few Barzani sufi took over land and business in the state of Erbil and Dahuk region illegally.
Massoud Barzani as tribal chief is thinking that he is the owner of Kurdistan. He is using iron fist as dictator and claiming to be democrat. He gained lot of wealth and power which encouraged Jalal Talabani to follow Massoud Barzani’s idea instead of his own ideas after many years of civil war. Both men divided Kurdistan region of Iraq and become dictators in the region.

Middle East democratic revolutions are in progress everywhere in the region. Kurdish people are awake and demanding the dismissal of Barzani and Talabani as a leader.

Barzani and Talabani are losing Kurdish people support. And they are losing credibility as an elected official. The international communities are aware that most of leaders in Middle East are not following laws and they are not elected by people. It is known how they are cheated in election.

The US Government was supporter of Middle East dictators for over fifty years to get cheap oil. The US oil companies took the wealth just like dictators took people’s wealth. The people in the USA are going down financially and so is the US Government. The Corrupt people are rich and majority of the people are poor in Middle East and America.

Barzani and Talabani survival as Kurdish leader are not possible anymore. The year 2011 can be their last year as the Kurdish people leader.
