Newly trained policemen are ready to hit the streets of Sulemania , a northern Iraq city.
Since Coalition forces plan to move away, the new force needs to be strong and avaiable.
At the mountains 50 km north of the city:
Kurdisch Pkk and Pjak guerillas fight for free Kurdisch state against Turkey and Iran,
they are based in the northern parts of Iraq and bombed by surrounding countries being called a terrorist group by the international community.
This army treats man and woman equal, as a result more than 35% of its members are woman,They share all tasks with man, no exceptions.
Some fight for their country, and others want to escape their future, in a region where woman-rights are not that good.
