I think I can partially understand the plight of the Turks and the Kurds. The Turks believe these 'rebels' are trying to destabilize their nation
and destroy it's current borders. And the Kurds believe they are oppressed and want their own nation and their own government. This is just my
It's really complicated because the Kurds live in Turkey, Iraq, and Iran mostly, and so to create a nation for the Kurds that would make them happy
would require cutting out pieces of territory in all three of those nations. This creates incredible political issues that are extremely difficult to
I do understand their plight, however I also believe that the situation is getting out of hand as well.
The media may not cover it much, but there has been a type of rebellion in these regions for a very long time seeking Kurdish Independence. There is a
whole lot of violence, and much bloodshed, although somewhat hidden from the mainstream media's focus. Even in recent times especially.
Another factor to consider is that these nations, Turkey, Iraq (Under Saddam), and Iran, have been using high-tech military force to subdue any
Kurdish uprisings in brutal manners. There are regular airstrikes conducted against villages in these regions etc. And don't forget the chemical
weapons allegations against the Saddam regime decades ago (which may or may not be exaggerated).
Perhaps it is time for all of these nations to come to the table with the Kurdish peoples and create some sort of autonomous "Kurdistan" region,
making territorial concessions from all three nations in order to quell this significant and serious problem. And in the future perhaps they could
become a fully independent nation and create their own laws and governance.
I just don't know, it's quite a headache, that's for sure.
