The Kurdish Motif
TV New Zealand carries this report titled: Kurds push for independence
Kurdish self-rule is inevitable if not imminent, a Kurdish leader said after Kurds in northern Iraq voted almost unanimously for independence in an informal referendum held last weekend.
"When the right time comes it will become a reality," said Masoud Barzani, head of one of the two main Kurdish factions which control Iraq's northern Kurdish zone.
"Self-determination is the natural right of our people, and they have the right to express their desires."
Of course, the Turks may not see things that way and could send several divisions across the border to emphasize their point of view that Kurds don't really need their own country, but should be satified being a minority in other countries.
