Interestingly the Kurds have been meeting with US officials in Berlin and Baghdad.
Yes, you read correctly- BERLIN and BAGHDAD"Mr. Omar said he and other YPG officials carried that message to U.S. diplomats during meetings in Berlin this summer and in Baghdad in September.
Here are the Kurds, in their own words:
The main Kurdish militia in Syria, the People’s Protection Units (YPG), has plans to take over mixed areas inhabited by Arabs, Turkmen and Kurds to make a contiguous Kurdish region. This would make the plan to create a de facto Kurdish government in northern Syria more feasible despite opposition by Turkey and other Syrian rebels.
For now, there are three Kurdish enclaves controlled by Kurdish fighters, separated by the Arab-dominated areas of Tel Abyad, Jarabulus and Azaz, where al-Qaeda-affiliated groups are strong.
The Democratic Union Party (PYD), which is the strongest Kurdish party in Syria and affiliated with the YPG, announced on Nov. 11 they would form three cantons in cooperation with local Christians, Arabs and Chechens in the PYD-controlled Kurdish areas in the province of Hassakeh, Afrin and Kobane (Ain al-Arab), which is located in the province of Aleppo.
YPG spokesperson Redur Xelil, in an interview with Kurdish journalist Mutlu Civiroglu, confirmed the YPG wants to connect these areas. “Of course, liberating Tel Abyad is included in the YPG plans. I want to be clear that when the time and conditions are right, we will liberate Tel Abyad, too.”Remember these names- Tel Abyad - Azaz - Jarablus
He added, “Those regions are between the cities of Serekaniye [Ras al-Ain], Kobane [Ain al-Arab] and Afrin. For these cities to be connected and for there to be no problem in transportation between these cities, Azaz and Jarablus must be liberated, too.”
I expect the US will be bombing ISIS/ISIL/DAESH, whatever brand name they are using for their NATO Islamist militants, in the area of these strategic cities sometime soon, if they haven't already, in aid of the establishment of Kurdistan. Because there is a symbiosis between ISIS & the Kurds.
