Wont be that dangerous , its better for both sides , the kurds realized its better for them to settle with Turkey after what they saw happened in syria by Assad towards his own people .
The radical shia regime in Iraq is now threatening the Kurdish Iraqis and in Syria Islamists have attacked kurdish syrians and kicked them out of several towns and villages killing more than 2000 kurds in cold blood .
Actually Turkey defended the kurds of iraq against the shia government and they stepped back .
Kurdish Elites in Turkey understood atlast they would be better off in alliance with Turkey rather than autocratic arab regimes or the iranian regime .
Something else Americans no longer support or protect anyone in the middle east , Obama is busy with his Asia pivot strategy and facing china also the united states has become self sufficient in oil production so they no longer care about the gulf oil that much .
For instance they left their closest ally mubarak fall so the kurds understood now that there is no way out but to get along with the turks .
Only rational kurds and turks understand how important it is for them to work together. In the future kurds could obtain autonomy in syria just like iraq and form close economic relations with turkey
southeast turkey could be turned into a manufacturing hub to serve northern iraq and syria where significant number of kurds live and benefit from the energy resources in those area.
Turkish firms exported to northern iraq for around 8 billion dollars last year and the same could happen in syria after assad falls .
Both sides need to give up concessions for real peace to prevail , pkk members end their armed resistance completely in return for cultural rights and more powers given to kurdish villages and towns to run their own affairs .
War is not the solution and syria is a prime example , now the country has been turned back into the stone age as a result of ethnic extremism .

with dangerous game .... I referred to Erdogan's political future .....should he fail ....
otherwise I agree with your comment, with one exception in regards to your referral to Kurdish villages and towns:
I do not agree that their will be 'more power' to KURDISH villages or town .... however more administrative powers to ALL villages and towns in the Republic of Turkey ...
without differentiating ethnicity ...
and the Kurds (like any other ethnic group) will benefit from it ...enabling them to use it for greater local (ethnic) cultural & educational activities/presence ..
