    The previous topics provide the baseline for the reader to understand why support for the Kurds is not a cut and dry issue but instead invites an ethical dilemma. The US is forced to choose between established allies, the GOI or Turks, and Kurdish partners, the KRG and Syrian Kurds. The Kurds have made a concerted effort to garner positive international opinion through reform of their ideals and practices. Surrounded on all sides by ethnic groups who have opposed and repressed them over the years, the Kurds have identified western powers as allies with the strength capable of supporting their bid for autonomy. Diplomatic Ethical Dilemmas As such, factions like the KRG have made it their mission to promote social freedoms in support of UN…

    11.3 million people have been displaced by the civil war in Syria and, despite a lack of coverage recently in the media, the number is only growing (World Vision). When asked, people guessed the number of refugees to be in the thousands and one even responded “is that still going on?” (Mason).

    persecution, these groups search for ways to create their own nation and become independent. According to Joseph Stalin, for an ethnic group to become a nation they must be “a historically constituted, stable community of people, formed on the basis of a common language, territory, economic life, and psychological make-up manifested in a common culture.” The world powers do not see the Kurds as a nation due to not meeting a majority of these characteristics.
