    Cause if they did exist at the time then Americans would also blow up buses and malls with American suicide bombers

    Why don't you go back in time and ask them?

    Re: In Your Opinion is the PKK a Terrorist Organization?

    The PKK entered into a ceasefire with Turkey 2 years ago. Settlement negotiations ("The Solution Process") are ongoing. However, the PKK has warned that it will break off talks if Turkey allows the Kurds of Kobane to be massacred by ISIS forces which have been relentlessly attacking the city (on the Syria/Turkey border) for over a month.

    According to human rights organisations since the beginning of the uprising 4,000 villages have been destroyed,[56] in which between 380,000 and 1,000,000 Kurdish villagers have been forcibly evacuated from their homes.[234] Some 5,000 Turks and 35,000 Kurds,[56] including 18,000 civilians[54] have been killed, 17,000 Kurds have disappeared and 119,000 Kurds have been imprisoned by Turkish authorities.[55][56] According to the Humanitarian Law Project, 2,400 Kurdish villages were destroyed and 18,000 Kurds were executed, by the Turkish government.[234] Other estimates have put the number of destroyed Kurdish villages at over 4,000.[77] In total up to 3,000,000 people (mainly Kurds) have been displaced by the conflict,[58] an estimated 1,000,000 of which are still internally displaced as of 2009.[235]

    Nice insight.

    I find the post a Weakypedia short from being liked. These sort of general information could have been found in other more serious sites, could they not?

    Yeah, the problem with that is that the Syrian government is willing to fight everybody, including those seeking a more democratic Syria. As for Hezbollah, they may be willing to fight ISIS, but only after they kill every Jew they can find.

    Hezbollah is not about killing jews, but keeping Israel out of Lebanon. Which Hezbollah does not leave to the Lebanese army because it is about as incompetent as the Iraqi army when it comes to actual fighting

    False.

    Since 2012, Hezbollah has helped the Syrian government during the Syrian civil war in its fight against the Syrian opposition, which Hezbollah has described as a Zionist plot and a "Wahhabi-Zionist conspiracy" to destroy its alliance with Assad against Israel.[44][45] Once seen as a resistance movement throughout much of the Arab world,[12] this image upon which the group's legitimacy rested has been severely damaged due to the sectarian nature of the Syrian Civil War in which it has become embroiled.[29][46][47]

    You should go back and reread your history, a more in depth version. Try reading the real history of the Revolution in the South and how 'polite' we Americans treated each other....
