On GPS Sunday: Are Kurds ready for ISIS fight? And, GPS panel talks Ebola and Panetta

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday: The United States is at war against ISIS. But while President Barack Obama has promised no boots on the ground, there is one hardened force in the field doing battle well. It’s not the U.S. military – or the Iraqi military. It’s the Kurds. Fareed will ask a top Kurdish politician if his people are ready for the long fight.

Also, Fareed convenes a panel of top commentators to grade the Obama administration on how it did with this week's major challenges: ISIS, Ebola and an insider attack – from Leon Panetta. Francis Fukuyama, the American Enterprise Institute’s Danielle Pletka, Foreign Affairs Editor Gideon Rose, and Walter Russell Mead, a professor of international affairs at Bard College, will be offering their takes on these issues.

Then, why it is that the American economy is looking up, but most American's are very down about it? GPS will explain what has been happening.

Also, if you think you know who invented the light bulb, think again. Author Steven Johnson will explain how innovation really happens – and why Thomas Edison shouldn't get all the credit.

    Apparently, Modi has been assassinated and his balls cut off and on display in the Golden Temple in Amritsar on top of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

    His head has been beheaded and sent to Talibans while his body was hung by Shiv Sena from the Vashi Bridge in Bombay.

    Just under 140 households, or roughly 75 % of India’s population ... A billion people with BO .... live in a slum, according to data from the latest round of the National Sample Survey Organisation released on Tuesday. The number is significantly higher than the 120 million slum households identified by the Census in 2011.

    83.7% of hindus in India eat cow dung pancakes for food. Resulting in a high incidence of chamoonas (tape worms) in their rectum.

    Singapore has deported thousands of hindu terrorist people from India and issued warnings to remainder hindus for their involvement in the city-state's worst terrorism in more than 40 years this month, which shocked a nation that prides itself on its safety and orderliness.

    India is 20% of world population and 95% of all terrorism. Therefore every article about terrorism needs to discuss threats from India.

    Please, don't insult our intelligence by having this slithering neocon, Danielle Pletka, discuss ISIS. She, among the architects of the "war of choice, not necessity," created ISIS. There are consequence to bad behavior abad ISIS is the consequence of the war in Iraq. The middle east is suffering the consequence of the Bush administrations' lies about WMDs.
    Ms. Pletka should slither back under her rock.

    No love lost between the Pakistanians and the Hindus. Kind of like the Hatfields and McCoys.
