Army is the significant component of a country or political party, without an army, neither country possesses nor political parties. The reason is county cannot protect its sovereignty without military forces; the power of the army demonstrates when it composes in the frame of a ministry, law and military component.

Founding the Iraqi army and Kurdish mistake at that event, when the Iraqi army had established there wasn’t a country named Iraq, similarly, neither president nor its borders designate, thus that army had established in a political space, but by using its power that army has improved itself and an established country.

The event of founding the Iraqi army referred to 21st, January 1921. At that time a Kurdish man in (Askar) village who belonged to the Kirkuk brigade named (Jafar Askari) founded the first military unit to the Iraqi Army under the name (Mousa Kadhim) the eighth imam of Shias, however, the majority of the army was Sunni, so an army has established by a Kurdish personality, with a Shia Arab name and a Sunni Arab ingredient. Ultimately, a Kurdish nationality has established an army for an interim government which was formed on 2nd, May 1920 under the leadership of Abd al-Rahman al-Naqib; later the Kurdish personality became the minister of defense of that interim government, hence a Kurdish nationality close to the English has founded an army to an unformed state not for a Kurdish state but for the Iraqi government!

If we focus on the date of establishing the Iraqi army, we realize that the English were plotted to found this army. Two reasons behind establishing the Iraqi army at that time, first, the English wanted to collect all the Iraqi component and religions in one army and used them to fight against the tribes and clans, second, those who revolt against the state would be suppressed by the Iraqis themselves, not the English, also, those who will kill and wound be the Iraqi citizens.

Furthermore, the British plotted to bring an Arab personality outside to be the king of Iraq who was (Faisal bn al-Hussein), the British did all those by using a Kurdish mind, the name of Shia Arabs and a Sunni force. For that reason, Kurd had made a mistake through that personality who founded an army to such a country which aimed to occupy its land in the future, Jafar Askari could afford to make such a duty for (Sheikh Mahmoud’s) government which was formed on 17th, November 1918, but he made for Iraqi Arab not for Kurd!

Jafar Askari fought against the personalities and political parties that were struggled to achieve their rights, for instance, (Sheikh Mahmoud) and his government strived to gain the deserved rights of Kurds. Thus, the first mission of Askari was protecting the interests and power of the first imported king to Iraq (Faisal bn al-Hussein), later vitiates the revolution of Sheikh Mahmoud and its government which was formed on 10th of October 1922, due to not harming the interests of Britain and Iraq and obliging Mousel province to accept the new Iraq.

The army has founded by a Kurdish man, he became an obstacle to form the northern Kurdistan state at that time, besides, fight against Kurds in order to not separate from Iraq, but they melt in the created Iraq to not see their independence.
