Don’t look now, but something GOOD just happened in the Middle East

Happy Nowruz!!

Let’s celebrate it by taking a mental moment to thank the wiser and cooler heads among the Turks and Kurds who, at least for now, appear headed for peace.  We took Spengler to task a bit ago for failing to keep up on currents in the region, and the gradual rise of the Kurds is one of the most important things to happen in the region in decades, and perhaps the primary reason to have hoped that Bush’s invasion worked out.  As Nuwroz passes in the Middle East, and Easter comes upon the West, let’s hope that the renewal of hope indeed leads to the rebirth of real peace and prosperity for all the people, Kurds and Turks both, whose lives have been marred by over a generation of tragic and endemic violence.

The Turks have a partner for peace.  And maybe, just maybe, the Kurds have more friends than the mountains.

Lots of Kurds not getting tear-gassed in Turkey.

    They’re probaby trying to recruit them to attack Syria.

      There’s be no point — plenty of SYRIAN Kurds for that purpose, if the Turks wanted them. The Turks have lots of refugees on their side of the border they could arm and throw in if they chose to do so.

  2. Plenty of room for ambiguity regionally, however, from the always well-informed Michael Totten:

  3. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
