Interesting history of the Kurds<br><br>"The Kurds received especially harsh treatment at the hands of the Turkish government"<br><br>This indeed is very true. My wife is of Turkish Kurdish heritage and has told me stories of how her relative where treated like second class inferior citizens kind of like African Americans during the days of Jim Crow and through the civil right struggle something we can both relate to.<br><br>Kurdish state? This has yet to be seen because they desperately want one and are going to pursue it so it's going to be real interesting to see what the aftermath of this war is going to bring because the Turkish people are really adamant about them not having any representation.<br><br>Unfortunately I think there are going to be as what they have always been “pawns”<br><br>
