Do Kurdish people deserve statehood and the right of self-determination?

It's a bit of a rhetorical question because the answer seems so obvious. Having helped to defeat ISIS, they've now been left at the mercy of the Turkish army. Here is a really interesting interview with a British volunteer in Rojava which will not appear in the mainstream media.

P.S. I know some people will argue that what is happening is not Trump's fault and that America and the West have no responsibility. This is an ally against ISIS which is being attacked by a NATo equipped army. If you want an isolationist foreign policy then working with allies you plan to later betray is not that.

In addition, the Kurds have had to release their ISIS prisoners and refugees from the Islamic state are being 'resettled' in Kurdish territory. If the 'Rojavan ISIL' ever becomes a terrorist problem for anyone then please think back to what led to its creation.

America should have stayed and should support an independent Kurdistan
They did make huge sacrifices fighting ISIS

That isn't something you deserve, it’s something you take. Best of luck to the Kurds.

I hear that argument not on deaf ears. I see them at side of it,but at the same time.... Fuck we in the middle east trying this shut for how long? It's worked when? Does anyone actually see that ever happening and if so how? Does anyone see anything ever coming out if it and to what benefit? There doesn't seem to be any clear objective or any end in sight to it.
Especially with pussy foot ways of fighting war these days.
Lets write six word sentences...GO!

[@1011311,Stilltryinghard] The American Empire (which is not an empire... No way is it an empire) cares only about spreading peace, equality and democracy throughout the world. The historical record shows that at every turn and look how nice Iraq is now. In fact, I might go on holiday there next year. 😜
[@422868,Burnley123] That was too many words heh.
