Blame went to terrorists not the Kurds.
Are you reading some non-English language news that is different than what I am reading?
And by the way, what I read is that basically, if you are a Kurd, by default you are some sort of terrorist (according to Turkey).
The Turkish government has been complaining about how Syria is giving refuge to what they are calling Kurdish terrorists.
My suggestion is that Turkey would be happy to move into northern Syria if for no other reason than to sort out the Kurds who are in that country and
have been up till now virtually immune.
And as for supporting an Iraqi Kurdistan, maybe they wish the Kurds of Turkey will move there.

I am indeed reading non English language news .
PKK organisation doesn't represent majority of Kurdish opinion .
Syrian government has always supported terrorists against her neighbours . Nothing new there .
It is true that minority of Kurds in Turkey have taken up arms against central government .
It is also true that there over 100 Kurdish MP's , currently residing in Turkish Parliament .
Northern Iraqi Kurds would prefer a confederation with Turks .
Kurds in Syria also asked Turkish government to treat them like their Northern Iraqi cousins .
Turks would not invade Syria to attack Kurds of Syria . Turks would only invade Syria if there was a real threat from Syrian army towards Turkey .
Few car bombs here and there is not enough to bait the Turks into invasion .
