    Default Will Kurdistan go it alone?

    Ballots not bullets. Let's hope it spreads

    The Kurds deserve their own state for the amount they have suffered under successive dictators and for the fight back against ISIS.

    If anyone deserves independence, it's the Kurds. But I'm not very optimistic about this being a peaceful process.

    Stronger case than for Catalonia, but note the strong opposition from all sides including the US.

    Verbal opposition is the least of their problems. There's a real chance of an invasion by Iran, Turkey, or Shiite militias.

    92% vote for secession. Good on the Kurds

    If it comes to conflict I'd rather side with the Kurds than Erdogan or the Iranians etc

    Agreed. While they aren't all angels they have been a lot better than almost any other regional group in the area.
