Pentagon right; US should be working w Kurds in Syria for moral and strategic reasons alike. A break with Erdogan’s Turkey is inevitable, if not over this than over other differences. Time for DoD to come up with plan to substitute for Incirlik access.

By moral reasons are you referring to Amnesty Int. and Human Rights Watch reports on ethnic cleansic, forceful recruitment of children or systematic deportation of all those that don’t support YPG/PYD from the areas they currently control by US support?

These allegations have been totally disproved, among others by an UN investigation.

Turkey has no problems with kurds in Syria.Ask 300K Syrian kurds that took refuge in Turkey. Do You suggest that US strategic interests will be better served if it sided by a terrorist organization rather than its long term Ally.? What a strategic vision!!!

Oslo meetings 2009 and 2012 Kandil talks 2013-14 and hdp and imrali sessions from 2010 to 2015 with tens of seperate proceedings . Comparing Latin America with Middle East would be very naive.

These independence movements taking place on the mountains not in Ankara parliement corridors. Have you ever tried to negotiate with fully armed people. We tried dozens of times.

First of all what you mean is NOT Kurds but terrorist YPG/PKK. and yes the US has been and is working with the terrorist group instead of its NATO ally and endangering Turkey’s national security

Yet another abandonment of the Kurds by the US. Reminds me of 1975 Algiers Accord, in which Iran's Shah (US puppet) & Iraq's Saddam Hussein settled border dispute resulting in US withdrawing support for rebellious Iraqi Kurds, leaving their fate to Saddam.

Don't essentialize "Kurds'". PYD and its Turkish origin PKK have fought the Kurds you mention, Iraqi peshmerga. They also claimed for years that there were no such thing as Syrian Kurds, only immigrants, to placate Assad Snr so that he would give them a base.
