    the kurds are an ethnic group that is native to the region. they are similar to the american indians. they would prefer to have their own nation, called kurdistan, and govern themselves independently. unfortunately, they are spread out in an area covered by several different countries...southern turkey, northern iraq, and northwestern iran mainly. there are over 20 million of them in this region and they are feared by turkey because they know the kurds would prefer not to be a part of turkey, but a seperate kurdistan. so turkey wants to keep their land and the kurds under their control and the kurds want to be independent.
