Don't Forget The Kurds

The Kurds are rumbling about secession.

The Kurds seem to be the forgotten variable in the equation. Yes, they have been our staunchest allies in the region and "Kurdistan" is the most stable part of Iraq, but the Kurds have never been secretive about desires for their own nation. Don't forget, even though it only registered a blip in U.S. news, it was just a month ago that the Turks were threatening to cross the border to address incursions by Kurdish nationals.

This is serious stuff and deserves watching. If the Kurds do make a run at nationhood there will be no more arguments whether there is civil war in Iraq or not.
