Turkey’s terrorists are Kurdistan’s freedom fighters. With 35 million Kurds living on there own land in Turkey-Syria-Iraq-Iran this fight will continue forever. Turkey is fighting Kurdish guerilla warriors. Kurds are fighting Turkish genocide and ethnic cleansing.


Your ‘guerilla warrior’ fantasy is a bit too neat – alas, like many guerilla militias, Kurdish armed factions fund their hardware purchases and illicit activities through organized crime – PKK are known for deep involvement in large scale heroin trafficking.
