    "convinced"

    Militarily maybe? Attempts at which seem to have been going on throughout the region for a few decades now.


    Actually the whole middle east has needed a redrawing since the Brits/US/ etc since screwed it up in the first place.

    • Turkey won't give one inch to Kurds unless forced at gunpoint. Turkey's stance towards the Kurds can only be described (at the very best) as "cautiously genocidal".

      • ^ I have a feeling the Kurdish fighters in or near Turkey may come to possession of some russian made weapons-similar to those in possession of those separatists in the east of Ukraine...

        • ^no the Kurds are allied with the US, and also with us, our special forces are operating with them (including acting as spotters for our CF18 strikes). They are getting plenty of weapons.

                The Ukrainian navy left little ambiguity in asserting that its ships had been attacked. “Fighter jets used weapons against the naval ships of the armed forces of Ukraine,” the navy’s statement said.

                • ^ interesting tactic by the facist Ukraninaian president to try and get support for himself, he is losing in the polls and can now institute marshall law and cancel the election. I guess the people who didn't support his illegal coup are getting fed up with his Nazi loving government.
