Kurdish Militant Group Pledges to Withdraw from Turkey

    Isn’t it obvious that tribal loyalties don’t respect modern political boundaries? And wouldn’t it make sense for Turkey, Syria and Iraq to agree to the establishment of a Kurdistan nation so that the Sunnis and Shiites can concentrate on their war?

    Kurds, probable descendants of the Medes, are not scattered: they live in their homeland, which happens to be the headwaters of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and includes part of western Iran.
    Both Iraqi Kurdistan and Iranian Kurdistan are members of UNPO.org, Unrepresented Nations and Peoples. Membership requires a commitment to non-violence. Taiwan and Tibet are members.
    Most of Pakistan and Iran are disputed by members: Sindh, Baluchis in both ‘nations’, Azeris, Turkmen.
    The Turks are the Occupation, of Anatolia, and it is the Turks who have waged war on the Kurds.
    I wish Mr. Mead had a better research team if he is going to cover so many topics.
