    The Kurds just need to change their name to the palestinians and watch everyone stepping over each other to give them a country

    Kurdistani4ever, Missourian, et al,

    This is another "Red Herring." Where did I mention "occupation?" Or! Who is implying "Occupation?" Where does "Occupation even enter into this? Turkey is an Ottoman Empire derivative.

    (COMMENT)

    The population of a given tribe has no real meaning when it comes to "sovereignty" of a nation in total. There is so much more to it then just that. The internal dispute between Turkish Kurds and their nation (Turkey) is a domestic concern on separatism.

    Turkish Sovereignty concerns the territorial integrity of the nation, and forges the umbrella over "all the people." To say that including the Kurds in the Turkish Sovereignty is an insult to the Kurds is, in effect tantamount to saying that the other two-thirds of the population are lesser people, - and is an affront to national unity; and promotes the idea of "establishing the hegemony of one social class over another." That is rather arrogant.

    I am not (in all probability) as well versed on the Kurdish Separatist movement as you. But from what you say, am I to assume that the Kurds cannot participate in Turkish political party activities and are unable to assimilate into the mainstream of Turkish society?

    Most Respectfully,
    R

    It's not that they are against independence, the AKP made such great promises for the future, and yet we are still waiting for them to come true.

    Yes, Kurds will never assimilate and become a part of the Turkish society, sooner or later they will left with no choice than giving us back our homeland. Fake borders may be present on the world map, but they will never be "real", when massive parts of the population there disagrees with it. A line chopping though the territory is one thing, but seperating a nations in 4 sides is just not right.
