Reader comment on item: The Case for a Unified Kurdistan

I would not be so sure that Kurdish vote will undoubtedly support succession given potential cost of such move, as we see debates in Scotland. Kurdish vote is still split between HDP, AKP and CHP, otherwise they would get not 10% but at least 20%-25% of votes.. It is however much better outcome than epic violent struggle. I think in the end Kurds will endorse some federal union if such referendum occurs in 20 years (I don't see it can happen earlier as demographic changes need to take their time and AKP power be broken). But let's wait for the Scotland vote, where as usual Britain shows way forward for humanity.
