There's no way the Turks are ceding any land, and even less so the Iraqis since that would mean ceding oil rich areas.
    Be that as it may, we owe them protection from those who would drive them out or kill them.

    That will prove to be an interesting balance given Turkey's position and their longstanding issue with the Kurds; Iraq will be interesting as well depending on what the Kurds ultimately push to accomplish. I agree with the sentiment, but that will prove to be tricky.

    I didn't say anything about the US supporting what the Kurds "ultimately push to accomplish". I said "protection". I'm referring more toward those who would commit near or total genocide.

    Well that protection will likely be needed as they push for a homeland, and even as it is they'll need protection from the Turks and Syrians. It gets more complicated given the situation there and especially with Turkey have have bad blood with the Kurds.

    Turkey has no one to blame but itself for the animosity of the Kurds.

    Yes. And I think we owe them.
