    Can somebody please explain to me why the US is not actively supporting an independent Kurdistan?

      Because Obama.

        Yes, he’s still has a man-crush on Erdogan and a fantasy about making a deal with Iran.

        But the Turks themselves seem to be moving in the right direction.

    “…Kurdistan increasingly looks like our best shot.”

    If the U.S. does get involved with Kurdistan, I would advise the Kurds to keep the U.S. at arm’s length and avoid being entangled by U.S. policy. Better they should rely on the Turks and Israel.

    • Curious Mayhem

      Yes. The US is a highly fickle friend.
