**FILE** Displaced Iraqis from the Yazidi community settle at a camp at Derike, Syria, on Aug. 10, 2014. In a dusty camp here, Iraqi refugees have new heroes: Syrian Kurdish fighters who battled militants to carve an escape route to tens of thousands trapped on a mountaintop. While the U.S. and Iraqi militaries dropped food and water to the starving members of Iraq's Yazidi minority, the Kurds took it on themselves to rescue them, a sign of how Syria's Kurds — like Iraq's — are using the region's conflicts to establish their own rule.
