RIZA

If anyone deserves a homeland, its the Kurds.

30-40 million strong and divided between Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Armenia, Turkmenistan and South Azerbaijan.

Iran, Turkey and Syria have been shelling their villages for 50 years plus. these people are survivors and my hat goes off to them.

This is all war politics coming back to bite those who signed the unfair treaties after WWI and WWII.

The Kurdish problems may ignite not just Turkey, but Iran and the Caucasus as well.
