I agree with you, the current leadership in the KRG is pretty close to a "terror state", however that doesnt mean that you just should undermine the free will of the Kurdish People, who are just lookin as me and you to live in peace aside with the other groups.
That is for sure. Glad to see that Iraqis are pretty acknowledged about the fact that artificial state to be created in Northern Iraq would be nothing more than a mosquito swamp.
As for an "AssyroTurkish State", what do you mean with that? That Turkomans, aside Assyrians should rule their own State? I dont think such thing is going to work, since the majority of Turkomans are residing in the area of Kirkuk, whereas most Assyrians are residing in the Nineveh Plains and in the Nohadra (Dohuk Province) of the KRG.
Well i mean, all people residing in Iraq may work it out.
It is just by recouncilliation of the publics , i think.
I assure you about the fact that we Turks do not want a simple acre of ANYONE'S land.
Actually the Federalism Idea is very great, but it failed to work in Iraq, the only groups who really benefit from it are the Kurds in the North and the Shia in the South, the other groups went till NOW empty handed and are unfortunataly under the opression of the various leading groups in the north and south of the country.
None of the governmental formations in Iraq would be totally-granted with a proper style of reformations. I mean, nothing would go well unless Americans would not be going back to their homes.
Christians of Iraq are also the inhabitants who deserve their individual representative in Iraqi government. Independancy and balcanization of the region into variety of pieces would create unstable and weak formations of redundant orders which will cause wars in the future.
If Turkey wants to help Assyrians, they should start offering help within Turkiyes borders, as far as I know there are kind things going on to maintain the resettling of Assyrians who left the area during the PKK - Turkiye "wars".
Assyrians residing in Europe and such are all going back to Turkiye with their assets, to their hometowns nowadays. You know ,many people were sent to Europe after World War 2 as workers.
Iraq acquires all the medical,constructional,electrical,supplementary neccessitates from Turkiye ,don't worry. The region nearby Turkiye will not in chaos since Turkiye would be the backing up state.
But, I also must stand with the Kurdish Side, I mean you truly cant ignore million of people from their right to exist and live, can you?
I do not have any problems with nonTurks living in Turkiye particularly since they would not be participating to seperatist micronationalist activities.
I do not stand aside with Kurds since they are planning to form a doll-state for USA.
True Kurds and Assyrians have and still have huge problems witheachother, however to keep on hating and fighting eachother will bring more unstability within the area and innocent victims.
So do we.
I do not really agree with the Idea of PKK, they should have tried always diplomatic means, which would show the West, look we Kurds are trying to get our rights without any armed uprisings, but Turkiye is hitting on us. I am pretty sure they would never have been listed on any terror lists.
Well , seperatist Kurds had descriped as if they were being slaughtered for nothing, as if they are cool people, nothing wrong with Turkish authorities...etc
Today, the municipalities,governmental halls in Southeastern and Eastern Anatolia is dominated (elected) to be DTP the Kurdist Party. If that is what they want ,let it be, but they are still trying to show that they are being oppressed which is a very classical Lie .
In conclusion, before one stats to clean up the house of someoneelse, you should start with your own.
We have nothing wrong within our house, and i do not interfere another's house ,don't worry.
Just letting you to have some brief advises of governing an unstable region peacefully with no offense.
