    The Turkish Government is in preparation of a comprehensive solution to the Kurdish Question in Turkey. This initiative has the support by the Turkish Army.

    What really is going to be changed by laws or constitution is not really clear, as currently there are several fact-finding commsions proceeding involving whole society players.
    The whole issue will be then discussed in the parliament and televised in to the homes of the Turkish public.

    On 16th October Kevin Costner will come to Turkey and make a statement to the "Democratization Opening". It is also known to the public as the "Costner"-fiasco.

    This thread is dedicated to this initiative, which i will post about.
    If someone is interested, here is an in-depth analysis of the governments and militaries approach, off course without any serious disclosures of the "Democratization Openeing" as this will be disclosed in Turkish Parliament.
    But it gives a good analysis of current state within Turkey.

    Analog Turkey will send this year into Oscar's foreign film race the film "I saw the sun", which touches very sensible issues and taboos regarding the activity of the Armed Forces and Terrorists in South-east Turkey telling the story of a Kurdish family.

    No fear it is no propaganda movie like Mel Gibson's "The Patriot" or so, but a critic drama.
    According to IMDB a rating of 7,1 / 10 and to the German IMDB a Rating of 8,3 / 10.
    IMDB: Günesi Gördüm (2009)
    OFDb - Günesi Gördüm(2009)

    Under the movie banner are 7 parts of yahoo video player embeded and in the right order from above to down, so self-explainatory. With English subtitles, the film itself is in Kurdish / Turkish.

    Kurdistan - a nation without country, has the unfortunate fate of comprising convergent geography within Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Syria.

    If you look at a map you quickly see that the entire region occupies the single land trade route for the emerging MEFTA (Middle East Free Trade Area) started by the Bush administration in 2003, and the existing EU. Under current geopolitical terms, Turkey is the bridge between the two global trade regions.

    Although the EU has yet to be ratified by all member states, and MEFTA is in it's relative infancy, the ultimate goal among geostrategic policy makers is to assure that trade between the two regions is uniform and seamless. Therefore, a Turkish government that is open to regional economic integration is a requirement for success. It's the same with Syria, Turkey, and Iraq (aka the "Axis of Evil" nations). Their governments must all be in agreement to participate in full in regional government, otherwise, regional globalization will fail.

    And where do the Kurds fall in all of this, with their desire for a sovereign nation? In the eyes of the banks who dictate our policies, the Kurds are an impediment to their goals. Rather than wanting integration, the Kurds want independence. And unfortunately for them, they reside directly within the land trade routes between the EU and MEFTA.

    That's why we see things like Kurds getting funding from the US, which is then used to move Kurd separatists into Turkey, which the Turks use as justification to send warplanes, tanks, and artillery against the Kurds. The US turns a blind eye to Turk incursions into northern Iraq because the Turks serve the policy requirement of stifling Kurdish strength and opposition so that they are not a presence in the region.

    Everyone remembers how the GHW Bush Administration promised the Kurds during the Gulf War that they would be supported if they rose against Saddam. They did, but the support never came and they were slaughtered and gassed by the thousands, with weapons provided to them by Don Rumsfeld under the Reagan Administration.

    The Kurds are in the wrong place at the wrong time. My hope is that they prevail ad they eventually achieve a solid place, but I'm certain tht it won't happen until the finance-based policy makers who control entire governments have been identified and eliminated.

    Sounds to me like you're a victim of a one-sided media. I can't blame you, because most people who've been subject to mainstream media are in the same boat as you. It's just a shame that we're so indoctrinated that we probably wouldn't accept the truth if it was spoon fed to us. C'est la vie, I guess.
