Don't twist the facts to suit your theory ...

Whether Turkey is important for USA, Europe or for the MIddle East can be argues. The European and American policy makers seem to think that Turkey is still a key factor in the region.

However, what is strange and ironic is that a suggestion is coming from a PKK supporter. PKK is declared by Europe, American and many other countries, U.N, as a terrorist organization. They kill women, children, innocent civilians. They are financed by dealing drugs, people trafficking, sex trafficking. Why would anybody take your ... ideas seriously? Wow. He has suggested the solutions in his book. Get your facts right. Don't twist them and sit back. Think, the Kurds are one of the greatest people of the region. They are scattered all over Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria. That is where they live and it is not Turkey's fault. The borders of that region as you should know, drawn on the tables of London, Paris, Berlin etc. The only border which is drawn with blood are the Turkish borders. If anybody plays with the borders in the Middle East that may lead to third world war.

We love the Kurds. We have no problem with them. Millions of them live a far better life than the Turks in Turkey. PKK is not the solution it is a part of the problem. But PKK murderous hands are not going to be able to come between the Turks and the Kurds.
