This is like the US supporting Germany during WW2. For the most part the US has been at war with somebody since WW2. Haven’t we killed enough people yet?

And the post WW2 base of US wealth and influence is actually technology and engineering such as computers and creative arts such as music and film. Rather than conquest and empire by the military, CIA etc. Latin America in the 60s, South East Asia in the 70s, Middle East from the 80s have mainly been rejection of the USA at the cost of much blood and treasure for all.
Not what you would believe reading the right wing Military Industrial Complex propaganda or listening to Republican presidential candidates.

Most often this is forgotten, which leaves the reader to believe these are victims of the PKK.

The Russians will back a homeland for these people – Its time the US did as well

At least one good & decent thing should be made from this mess…..
