Keen to secure loyalty, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has granted Syria's Kurds de facto control over predominantly Kurdish areas of the country. But with the freedom, divisions have emerged.

“They haven’t even drafted a constitution that would accept Kurdish people. Why should we fight for them? We are not ready to send our people to die for nothing.”
That sounds wise to me. Why can't we find the reasons for peace. Too bad there's unrest within. Never stops...

The Kurds were made non exsistant by the British and French after WW1 to secure Middle East control for themselves, giving Kurd territory mainly to Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran. It is called, ruling by division, like India, Africa and naturally the Middle East. All ending up in wars after Britain and France walked away after WW2. Now what, it became a US problem. Vietnam, the ongoing Palestine / Israel conflict, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan and many more small conflicts. Unwinnable wars, the only reason why it is not coming to an all out war in the Middle East is, they all fight each other and cannot agree on anything, including the Kurds.

Flagged spam as usual.
