So "genius" tell me where the independent country of Kurdistan is located as I would realy like to know.
The Kurds are in an undefined area in and out of the borders of Turkey, Syria, Armenia, Iraq and Iran.
Now I dont know about you but I would be miffed if the governments of said countries forbade or opressed the use of the word "Kurdistan" and all it contains because some bugger in London forgot that your people existed.
As in "Ah they are all just a bunch of orks"
Grab a history book and take a peek under "K" you may find some answers.
"So "genius" tell me where the independent country of Kurdistan is located as I would realy like to know."

what? how does asking this question even serve your purpose or argument?

Yeah? You should ask my family and their neighbours in Umraniye, Istanbul who are harassing them verbally & physically!

Do I know better, hell yes! You shoulod open your eyes and see the reality. Racism and discrimination against kurds still exist and some people will take any events to push it ahead.

Not only the PKK are bad people in that story, you know?

sorry for your family, but you are simply exaggerating when you say kurds are being harrassed for only being kurds, especially in an area which is predominantly kurdish like Umraniye

just doesnt make sense

Re: Faith in humanity temporarily restored (Turkey earthquake)

Jeez-us! How can such a feel-good thread have gone off the rails into this complete train crash?

Open your own thread and knock yourselves out about Turkish problems.

I will (carry on) thank you. Let me summarise for you (as a non-genius):

Both: suggested that it is caused by WWI = agreement (yay!)

Slammer: the Kurds were not given their own State and marginalised (fact)

You: Small states are bad idea (=opinion)

So in summary, you agree on the cause, but the other points you made are different and neither support nor are relevant to the origin of the problem (Kurds have no State).

I'm a genius. Thank you. I'll add that to my CV.

nope. sorry to burst your bubble, but you should read all this with the knowledge of an existing and prevalent historical theory that it was the "unfinished business" of creating a middle east completely partitioned along ethnic, religious and linguistic lines that resulted in the troubles of today.

I kinda think Slams was saying something like "triumph of life in the face of a natural calamity, contrasted with death and destruction at the hands of man in the same land" or something, sorta making the baby's rescue all the more poignant. Or something.
