Turkish hatred and fear of the Kurds is legendary, but of course they're a country loaded with ethnic hatreds. You could ask the Armenians, if you could FIND any in Turkey who weren't killed in the genocide.

Turkey should be booted out of NATO for their persecution of Kurds. The US needs to exert pressure on Iraq and Turkey to guarantee a homeland with secure borders for the Kurds. They were our allies in Bush's war against Iraq. We have a debt to repay.
