That sounds more like a tantrum than a solution.
The destabilising started with weapons of mass destruction many moons ago, when the US and coalition began to pull out the power vacuum was filled by
Jihadists, some of which had a huge influence in the power structure of Iraq. They infiltrated the government and military.
Fast forward to Syria and the coalition intervention made it impossible for Syria to maintain it's own borders and territory. It's tricky defending 5
borders when you're busy defending your streets with technology older than your troops. Not to mention the occasional attack on the government of
Syria by Western forces or Israel. We did good having Russia look like the good guy though.
So yeah, the Kurds are in it for themselves. Unfortunately for them they're always caught up in the crossfire and have developed the knack for
defending themselves aggressively. It's a skill typically honed when you try to inhabit the land your grandparents did but tend to be treated like a
second class citizen or worse.
Personally though I find it sickening that the Kurds have been abandoned to Turkey. Seems "No fly" zones and humanitarian corridors apply when deemed
fit, seems that the rights and humanitarian needs of the likes of ISIS fighters are more important than allies.
Maybe in future stay at home?
