What Price US Policy in Syria?

Human evolution is very slow. It took one hundred and thirteen generations from the time Cyrus the Great of the Median (ancient Kurdish) Empire established a constitution granting human rights under the rule of just laws until the American Constitution, based on the same precepts, was formulated. Other nations of the ancient Middle East went to Cyrus the Great asking him to assume rule over their countries because of his human-rights policies.

Although the United States has itself become strong by implementing human-rights policies, few developing or war-torn nations expect them to be realised in US foreign-policy interventions. Its declining popularity has been further tarnished by its support for dictators, corrupt leaders, and criminals in countries that have been disadvantaged by years of wars for control of resources and the populations through the imposition of religious ideologies by monolithic powers.

These associations are not only detrimental to the US now and in the long run, they oppose everything the US professes to stand for.  President Obama may be excused for his youth and inexperience in regard to America's future, but his more senior former Secretary of State Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton also failed to engage with opportunities to secure US interests in contentious regions of the world such as the Middle East, whose stability is a global issue.

With the blessing of Israel and Saudi Arabia and the knowledge of the US government, the Prime Minister of Turkey and the President of Kurdistan closed the border on Kurdish people in Syria and supplied arms to al-Qaida-affiliated organization, Al-Nusra Front or Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syrian terrorist organizations to kill civilian Kurds. You can find videos in YouTube by Al-Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria terrorist organization burning Kurds alive and butchering Kurds or shooting them in the head to show the world how they kill non-believers of Islam. What else must the state department want to see from them?

Listen, learn, the US government helped Osama bin Laden to fight Russian in Afghanistan but we all know what al-Qaida of Osama bin Laden did to America. Why is the Obama administration helping such groups in Syrian war?

The US government is dealing with Communist China. If we assume that PKK is similar to China, why the US is not dealing with them?

For those who do not understand "Kurdistan", Kurdistan is divided by four countries, namely Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and Syria. In Turkey PKK is fighting for liberation of Kurdistan, in Iran PJAK is fighting for liberation of Kurdistan, in Iraq KDSP is fighting for liberation of Kurdistan, and in Syria PYD is fighting for liberation of Kurdistan. These four organizations are united under KCK (Kurdistan Parliament) command.

KCK is in control of commerce gateway to Europe for over 500 million people from Turkey to Pakistan and from Kurdistan to former countries of Soviet Union. These regions are undeveloped land with every kind of natural resources. It is much more productive for the US and EU interest than China. Majority of Kurdish people are supporting KCK now, the land of Kurdistan are the source of water in Iran, Iraq and Syria, the land is very rich with Oil and gas too. Massoud Barzani is only in control of one Kurdish tribe. His father become famous among Kurds because of Sheikh Abdul-Salam Barzani's execution by Ottoman Turkish Empire; today grandson of Sheikh Abdul-Salam Barzani is standing up against Massoud Barzani's betrayal of Kurdish people.

In conclusion the interests of the US are best served by dealing with people's organization. KCK and Kurdish leader are expecting super-power like the US to be peacemaker instead of supporter of terrorist organization.

"Unconfirmed reports have emerged detailing a new massacre in which 450 Kurds -- including 120 children -- were allegedly slaughtered by al-Qaeda-linked rebels fighting against the Syrian government. The report has sparked international concern."

"Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has called on the UN Security Council to "unambiguously' censure the mass killing of Syrian Kurds by foreign-backed radical militants fighting the Damascus government". But when questioned by RT, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the US "would always be concerned with any reports of attacks on civilians or any others of this kind" but otherwise had little to add.

"I'll have to look more closely into that specific report," she said at the Wednesday briefing. "You are probably very familiar with how we view al-Nusra and we've designated them as a terrorist organization. We have taken many steps to ensure to our best ability that aid and assistance of all kinds is going to the moderate components of the opposition -- and that's the message that we have conveyed publically and privately. But we certainly are aware of the continuance of the extremist elements."

It is understandable that President is without info about the region and Vice President Joe Biden has been advised by supporter of Barzani and secretary of state supposed to have detailed information about who is popular with Kurdish people and who is not so he can advise President to serve the interest of the US people.  Why the US secretary of state is not informed about the Kurdish people and their leadership importance in the Syrian war is a mystery.
