The issue with the Kurds is that they're essentially trying to create a state based on 19th century European ethnic nationalism, in the Middle East, which is crazy diverse in the distribution of different ethnicities.
I'll use Kirkuk in Iraq as an example, the city is 1/3 Kurdish, 1/3 Arab and 1/3 Turkmen, yet Kurdish nationalists claim it as a "Kurdish city".
In the event of a free Kurdistan, do they really think those Arabs and Turkmen will sit there and let the Kurds take the city?>>74175743
Ancient Persians used to style themselves like Mesopotamians, both with their beard and dress.
Also that same nose is also found in Iranians, and that beard can also be grown like that too.
