  • _Kurdistan has a history of supporting the U.S.

    Gary Bauer states,”Even with outdated equipment and limited help, the Syrian Kurds have redefined the battlefield. They have also advanced the idea of the establishment of an autonomous region in Northern Syria. This is an idea Americans should support because the Kurds’ national interests, governmental objectives, and democratic principles are pro-America and pro-West.” Why not support them if their cause is righteous in american eyes.

  • De Jure Independence

    The Kurds in Syria have De Jure independence - meaning they have a constitution that separates them from other states. This constitution, which has been re-written in just the past month, unites three differing groups of Kurds into one unified region within Syria (Rojava Cantons). A huge argument against Kurdistan is that they are disunified, but if three differing groups of Kurds can come together to create a smaller region and constitution, it is highly likely that the same process can be applied on a larger scale to create one Kurdistan with a single government and differing parties to represent different Kurdish interests.

  • Obviously, like, duh.

    Its best to first start with the voluminosity of the kurdish ethnic group, There are around 40 million Kurds across Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Syria—the largest ethnic group without self-determination since the creation of israel. Though they are ‘just’ an ethnic group by diplomatic standards, they have assembled their own independent army, which has led the attacks against isis. They have established small kurdish ‘states’ throughout iraq and syria that essentially have been managing themselves for over 20 years. In fact, iraq officially recognizes its kurdish territory as a self governed federal region.

  • The forgotten nation

    The Kurds should have got a country after WWI, and given all the suffering they have been through since then, plus their huge contribution against ISIS, plus their relatively stable, secular and tolerant society, makes them the most deserving of all peoples for their own country. They have been forgotten for too long.

  • They have been oppressed too much

    A nation which has been oppressed throughout history definitely deserves their own nation especially when they have been the only nation who's people have been fighting ISIS. Also why do countries such as Luxembourg with a population of 543,202 have an independent state but kurdish people don't, despite them being the largest nation on the earth without a state? Similarly the jews were given an independent state (ISRAEL) due to the holocaust so why shouldn't the kurds be given the same since they have also been oppressed??

  • YES . Tf

    The Kurdish people have done a lot for different people of the world. Defending land and territories that don't even belong to them. The least that we can do is create an independent Kurdish country for them. UNLESS you all just want them roaming around as if they are homeless or something (they basically are). They will just continue to intrude other's land and make their own homes for themselves. -_-

  • Give the Kurds their own nation

    They are the ONLY nation to truly be able to stand up to ISIS. They are on the front lines, they have been defending and liberating ISIS held areas. OK with the support of the US and Russia but I am pretty sure without the Kurds amazing fighting and defending ISIS would be even stronger. For this reason and this reason alone the Kurds deserve the world's thanks and in return they deserve their own nation state.

  • Because its simply dividing Arabia more and more

    Look at how divided already Arabia is, we should strive to unite them not to divide them more and more and keep them shattered and weak and never able to unite, also if every ethnic group is given a free nation then america should be divided into so many countries etc

  • It will upset a major NATO member.

    Turkey is a member of NATO, and the kurds in turkey want to break away from it. This will not do because NATO would side with Turkey due to the nature of the alliance, so if there is a civil war in Turkey, the US may even end up fighting the kurds if they pose a threat to Turkey. Turkey breaking apart will not help anyone except Russia, who wants to weaken NATO. If we don't help Turkey in their war with the kurds, then we obviously can't uphold the treaties we signed when we made NATO, and not only would the world lose faith in us, but the NATO alliance would crumble.

  • Kurds are ethnically Iranic. They are branch of Iranian peoples just like ethnic Persians.

    I am a Kurd and I am Iranian.
    There are also Kurds who think they are a separate race with a unique and unmixed history, their views are drawn from inventions not older than 60 years.
    If you want to look at it anthropologically, then yes, Kurds are a branch of the Iranian tree.

  • The world turns without one.

    No, there should not be an independent Kurdish state, because we cannot keep making new countries for every ethnic group that decides to want their own country. There are ethnicities everywhere. It is unfair to make each country give up land and resources because another group of people demands to take it over. That is bullying on a large scale.

  • Countries have Ethnic Diversity

    Kurdistan should not be independent because countries like the United States of America are known as "The Melting Pot" and are perfectly fine with the amount of diversity evident within the country. Yes, there is racism and difference between each ethnicity; however, all are working well together. If a Kurdish country were to establish that will only be the beginning to bigger problems. Furthermore, they will have too much control since they're in the middle of the Middle East. If a war were to rise with the Kurds in the Middle East between any of the Arab countries they would have blockades and that will destroy and make wars worse than they already are. The Kurdish country is a threat not a benefit to the Middle East.

  • No to kurdistan - australia

    The Australian government does not recognize any Kurdish 'parliament' 'government' or 'congress' - whether located in Iraq or not. The progress they make should be made within existing boundaries. However, treatment towards the Kurdish people should uphold and be within the international human rights conditions. Thank you thank you thank you

  • An independent Kurdish state would be disadvantageous to Azerbaijan

    Despite Azerbaijan recognising that the Kurdish people wish to have, and are arguably deserving, of their own independent state, this would be damaging to Azerbaijan's reputation as a strong ally and trading partner of Turkey. Additionally, Kurds make up a significant proportion of Azerbaijan and if Kurdistan were to become independent Azerbaijan would feel a loss to their culture and economy.
