Correction Indeed

Reader comment on item: Islamist Turkey Overreaches
in response to reader comment: correction?

You are correct, my comment was poorly stated. It should have been, "The Kurds hold the distinction of being the longest living indigenous people in the history of the world to never have their own state who wanted a state of their own!" The Samis, the Aborigines, and even the native Americans never really wanted a state of their own. Only several decades after the invention of the slot_machine did the American Indians realize the value of statehood!
