A bit of commentary

Well it looks like the Republic of Turkey will be officially recognising the Kurdistan Regional Government in Northern Iraq/Southern Kurdistan.  If these reports are true this will be a huge shift in Turkish political recognition of the Kurds.  It should be interesting to see if this really plays out.

Secondly in the news today, Turkish radio broadcasts were removed from the airwaves in Sweden for Kurdish radio broadcasts.  Apparently the Turkish broadcasts are offensive to minorities.  I am not sure how I feel about this…it just feels kinda sad and silly at the same time.
