The Kurds got screwed at the end of World War I, And lost their dream of an independent Kurdistan. There are large Kurdish communities in northern Syria, southern Turkey, and northwestern Iraq, and they have long dreamed of pulling back together into one country. In both Iraq and Syria they have been the allies of the United States in the battle against Isis and Al-Qaeda, but Erdogan in Turkey hates them and wants to kill them because they do not kowtow to his strongman rule. It's a tragedy that Donald Trump has decided to stop protecting our longtime ally the Kurds in Syria. Instead, he should be pulling together an international coalition to help them protect their territories and become their own country.
