  1. *They Not a Kurdish fighters! They are terrorists. PKK / YPG / PYD Terrorist all.!*
    *Kurds’ biggest enemy: PKK / YPG / PYD terrorists*

  2. Kurds are at least loyal even though the politicians in the West have betrayed them multiple times.. The Arabs, Pashtuns, Persians, Chechen and many other ethnics groups that are Muslims usually end up becoming enemies of the West after. Arming the Arab Rebels in Syria will only create future enemies something Western politicians never learn.
