FILE - In this Wednesday, June 25, 2014 file photo, Kurdish peshmerga fighters take positions on the front line with militants from the al-Qaida-inspired Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), in Tuz Khormato, 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of the oil rich province of Kirkuk, northern Iraq. The Kurdish forces trying to protect this northern Iraqi town have felt the brunt of Islamic extremist fighters’ attacks and know how ferocious it is. The militants are bristling with American weapons and armored Humvees looted from Iraqi arsenals, giving them a powerful edge. After Washington’s promises to arm them, the Kurds say they badly need heavier weapons from the United States to stem the expansion of the Islamic State group. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla, File)
