Prompted by the next post I have merged the few threads, all SWJ Blog posts, to this new thread - the Kurdish potential and problem.

There is a closed thread:Turkey mainly, Iraq and the Kurds (2006-2014)

The Kurds undoubtedly appear in other threads on Iraq and Syria since 2014.

Default The PKK factor

A Kings College London ICSR report, 24 pgs, 'War of Shadows – How Turkey’s Conflict with the PKK Shapes the Syrian Civil War and Iraqi Kurdistan' launched yesterday.

Summary:http://icsr.info/2017/08/icsr-report...aqi-kurdistan/

Paper:http://icsr.info/wp-content/uploads/...-Kurdistan.pdf

There is a podcast, but I found the sound so poor I stopped listening:https://www.pscp.tv/ICSR_Centre/1jMKgPDLmzXGL?t=1
