A intriguing study by master diplomatic affairs correspondent Mr Semih Idiz viewing the North East  Syria conundrum from the Kurdish viewpoint.


The disappointment was evident in Kobane’s remarks to Al-Monitor, too. Those remarks also showed that the only thing that will strengthen the YPG’s hand today is a clear decision by the United States to stay in Syria for the long haul in order to check Iranian ambitions.

Even if that happens though, it is not evident that this will guarantee autonomy for Syrian Kurds, given that America ultimately is out to secure its own interests over and above the interests of the Kurds; this is something that has been proved time and again in the past.
