I agree that terrorism is a loaded term and that too often people overreact to it while downplaying state violence, especially when its structural state violence. And as I said before in both conflicts we should hold the state actor to a far higher standards because while its true that the separatist movements are a legitimate threat to the citizens of Israel and Turkey those states are themselves a far greater threat to the stateless people they're in conflict with than the other way around. But on some level both those states still have legitimate security concerns in regards to the separatist movements they face. Now they could defuse some of that with some just concessions and unfortunately both seem unwilling to do so. But ultimately Turkey has two failed states on its border which is emboldening a separatist movement they've been in conflict with for decades. People are right to be concerned with how the Turks will carry out the operation but that doesn't mean they don't have good reasons for carrying it out in the first place. Its not just Turkish supremacy, that's what the secular nationalist leaders in Turkey were pushing for with enforced disappearances of Kurds and the banning of their language. This is an extreme solution to an extreme situation. If I were president of course this is not how I would handle. I think the best way forward for the Kurds would be to carve out Kurdistan from the Kurdish occupied areas of Syria and Iraq since those are failed states. Make it a federated state giving some level of autonomy to both Iraqi and Syrian Kurdistan under one central Kurdish government and hopefully in the future the Kurdish occupied areas in Iran and Turkey could reach some agreement not unlike the Good Friday Agreement where those areas remain under the sovereignty of those states but with relaxed borders so that Kurds can virtually access all of historic Kurdistan without much resistance. But that's a pipe dream at this point and the kind of deal that I find highly unlikely to happen under a president like Trump.
