Reading the two paths, plus the bonus third option - it seems no matter the result, they will end up under a fascist dictatorship (though the third option of insurgency is the only one with a way out built in)

Man, fuck. I can't imagine anything worse but a situation like this with no answer, and I dunno what you guy's takes even could be.

The PKK and YPG closely cooperated to birth the DFNS during the Syrian Revolution's start, and the Democratic Confederalist ideology was rooted in the PKK, which still cooperates in Rojava via the KCK, which more right wing groups like those in the KRG do not. I'd be plenty happy with a separate Kurdish forum, though. Is it possible you could make one? I try not to link to having actual accounts for obvious reasons. (Turkish secret police aren't friendly.)

But I also propose that if this is to refer to the DFNS that its not referred to as Rojava, since that brings forth the often-heard criticism of it being an ethnocentric nationstate, when in reality it is the furthest thing from it, incorporating Assyrians, Yazidis, Arabs, and more into decentralized communes and cantons. So, my proposal is that the sidebar at least becomes less specific than 'Rojava and YPG' since both are Kurdish terms and exclude the huge amount of Arabs working to build a new society in the DFNS.

There is certainly a need for a Kurdish forum, but I don't know that the struggle of Turkish Kurds is the same as the struggle of Syrian Kurds. It almost feels nationalistic just to group them together.

I know, and I'm not a proponent either; but 'Rojava' itself is a Kurdish nationalist term as opposed to the DFNS which is the entire multi-ethnic group, so I supposed encompassing the KCK as a whole is better than only including PYD and YPG.

Either way, most of the content that has and will be posted here in the future will most likely be geared towards rojava. My question is why could we not include content that includes greater Kurdistan?
