    , maybe we see APO getting the prize in a few years

    Of course it's out of the question as you Kemalist fan boys are still in power. - Even if AKP is officially in power they are practically afraid of the fascistic shadow regime behind the scenes..

    PKK doesn't operate based on volunteering but on fear. Most of it's members come from young age as they're adopted and brainwashed. Their support does not lie inside Turkey but mostly in Europe. A Turkish party that would respect ethnic Kurds rights is not better than an ethnically Kurdish party. Negotiating with PKK is a disgrace to people, ethnic Kurds and ethnic Turks, that lived in the South-Eastern Turkey.

    Every single post of yours shows how clueless you are about the subject. You should seriously pull yourself out of this thread.

    I do not understand why most of you have double standards...

    If Kurdistan is given state you have to give same to following...

    Georgia - SO & Abkhazia
    China - Tibet & many other small regions
    Serbia - Kosovo
    Kosovo - parts would go back to Serbia
    Bosnia - Serbian Part
    GB - N. Ireland
    Spain - Basque region
    Ukraine, Poland - Galicia
    Canada - Franch parts
    India - Kashmir

    We would go from 192 states to around 400 in days.

    GIVE rights to all people for self determination or lock the borders as they are today and deny independence to minorities.

    Before you give me crap that all situations are different, they are not... its simple majority of population has the rights to choose where they live or they do not.

    If Albanians in Kosovo and Chinese in Taiwan have rights to self determination so do people in Kashmir and Tibet, same with Norther Ireland and many other places.

    The way PKK recruits people is also is not the way you think. I've wrriten a long one on it and I'm lazy to wirte again as it woN't matter. We are fascist Kemalists(even though two ideas contradicts)
    "Therefore I am not in favour of raising any dogmatic banner. On the contrary, we must try to help the dogmatists to clarify their propositions for themselves. Thus, communism, in particular, is a dogmatic abstraction; in which connection, however, I am not thinking of some imaginary and possible communism, but actually existing communism as taught by Cabet, Dézamy, Weitling, etc. This communism is itself only a special expression of the humanistic principle, an expression which is still infected by its antithesis – the private system. Hence the abolition of private property and communism are by no means identical, and it is not accidental but inevitable that communism has seen other socialist doctrines – such as those of Fourier, Proudhon, etc. – arising to confront it because it is itself only a special, one-sided realisation of the socialist principle."

    Turkey has two interests in Iraq, first, to maintain the Iraqi territorial integrity and second...to fight the PKK. If Iraq descends into conflict or civil war, an independent Kurdish state will most likely be produced, which can incite Kurds beyond the border in Turkey to join the new independent country and the PKK needs to be decimated so that they will not be able to prosper while the first event is taking place. So depending on how you look at it, if Iraqi Kurdistan doesn't push for independence the Turkish could effectively accomplish their goals. However, the Kurds independence will be an unlikely occurence in my opinion, an independent Kurdistan will oppose the U.S. strategy of a "united Iraq"...for say, if the Kurds gain independence surely the other major ethnic/religious groups in Iraq will want a state for their own? In addition, Kurdistan is a land-locked state and relies on Syria, Turkey and Iran for land and air communications, all three of the said countries have a notable Kurdish minority and Kurdish independence would cause the Kurds there to wish to join the new Kurdish state, so they would most likely deny recognition and supplies. They would have to deal with a small market, and they might have to go under assistance of the United States, which could isolate them from their Syrian and Iranian neighbors. But Kurdistan not only has issues to solve involving external states, but also within itself, as the two major parties (Kurdistan Democratic Party and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan) have yet to solve the issue of power-sharing, and as the American forces are starting to recede and withdraw to pass military responsibilities to the Iraqis, the U.S. might lose interest in the area and might not have the means to provide them with aid.

    I am for Kurdish independence, as I am for most autonomous regions in the world, however I doubt Kurdistan and other region's ability to run their own country, and the extreme political and economical conditions that will arrive for the young states...it reminds me of a Union (U.S. in the American Civil War) poster that depicted the United States as a tree, and the Confederates as a human holding on by the branch trying to saw themselves off, but once they do so, they will fall down to the bottom...

    Just wanna add some stuff to that. PKK is a some sort of communist group. For the last 10 years though, in Turkey, a lot of people think that they've lost their real cause to fight. Their actions just help to create racism in Turkey. If say the idea of Kurdistan becomes completely real in Northern Iraq, it will only lead to more problems. Turkmens that are actually the ones living in that region will be put in danger. Kurds would only rely on the oil fields they have for income and it would have to pass through Turkey, Iran or Syria. None of them will be extremely friendly. Kurdistan would clean Turkey from those couple of thousand PKK partisans though. That's the only good thing about it.

    Excellent post my friend. You are absolutely right, when it comes to these issues there should not be double standards. Because all nations and ethnic groups have equal rights and their aspirations should be looked in a same manner.

    Exactly. And Kosovo sets the example I think - Now any minority, who can get the support from big foreign powers, have a case in their quest for independence. International law, as we know it, is a thing of the past...

    That's right Platon, the so-called International law is the thing of the past and belongs to the history books. With the recognition of Kosovo every European and International law was broken, including UN Charter. So, to say now to some well you can't do this because it's against International law is a joke.

    Thought I might help you out.

    Independents are the DTP members (with some exceptions), for those who aren't familiar with the specifics of the 2007 election. Note that they lost quite a few regions to AKP, with the exception of Sirnak and the regions closest to the Iraqi border (where sympathy for the PKK is traditionally highest). And ALSO note that the only reason why these seats were won at all was because the 10% barrier was circumvented by DTP members running as independents. I think they actually the fewest votes in their (HADEP/DEHAP/DTP) collective history during this election.
