Create a State for the Kurds
After World War One and the defeat of the Ottoman Empire, the victorious Western allies made provision for a Kurdish state in the 1920 Treaty of Sevres. However, that promise was nullified three years later, when the Treaty of Lausanne set the boundaries of modern Turkey and made no such provision, leaving Kurds with minority status in their respective countries.(wiki)
The world should stand with the Kurdish people and give them their own state. They have fought against many forces of evil so we don’t have to on a large scale. The Kurds now hold a large portion of Syria which they won in the fight against ISIS. Let’s declare what they have as their new state. This will keep ISIS and Assad in a box and will allow us to have a partner in the region. If the US is any kind of friend we should go to bat for the Kurds and help make this happen, not walk away and leave them in the crosshairs of another dictator. I call on congress and my representative to support a state for the Kurdish people.
