Looks like things are heating up ever so slowly in the ME with multiple countries slowly getting involved in the regional politics. Now we have the 25 year old turkey's thorn...PKK (
one of the many designated terrorist groups) in the mix to keep the back burner lit. 2013 would be interesting (unless the world ends on Dec 21st, 2012
as per several posters on ATS).

Iraq urges the Kurdish autonomy to approve the deployment of troops on the border with Turkey to prevent the Turkish troops' entering Iraq, as well as to stop air strikes on the country against the militants of Kurdistan Workers' Party, head of the Iraqi parliamentary security committee Iskander Witwit told Trend on Wednesday.

There probably does but it won't work because every other country has secessionist issues and they (Western) can't be seen aiding the creation of new nations while preventing others (Palestine, Ossetia, Quebec etc..) my guess

You mean go back to the structure/maps as they were before the europeans set the current boundaries? or even going back further in time ?
Re-writing the history backwards? IRAN will not give up that easily as a big chunk of the map overlaps their region.

Star for you,Kurd's need a home
But All sides need to lay down the arms,come to the table and at least give these people some rights and recognition,it's really what there asking for,25% of the Turkish and Iraq populations are Kurds,the majority of them being Sunni.

And all this because of what?
Religion? Or more so control of the power within the factions?

I agree however what if there is another demand from another minority? Where do one draw the line as that region is very diverse though they can be summarized as either arabic, persian, kurds etc.

True

But, Someday in the distant future people like say, the Tibetans, may decide they'd like a country of their own.

Who's to say people shouldn't have their own country?
People scream all day that Palestine should be a country but they get upset if someone says Texas should be an independent country.

The Kurds should do whatever they can to get their own nation. Once that pesky Islamic coalition gets formed they will exterminate the Kurds as a matter of course.

Which I'm all for it. Until then it will remain a bargaining chip against the Chinese at this time.

True but where do you draw the line as per who can have their own country. Although it seems to/might be going backwards after the formation of the 'caliphate' or atleast from the political and regional forecast seems to suggest.

Where does WHO draw the line?
You? Me?

How about you ask the Kurds? They live there. We don't.
