Will the Kurds ever get their own country?

Whilst not its own country, the Kurds already command their own territory in Northern Iraq headed by the Kurdistan Regional Government, with its own sub-economy and establishes the control of its own internal and domestic affairs.
By every definition, it is its own government, but holds itself together with South Iraq as a federal entity. The only thing it shares with the rest of Iraq is the sharing of the constitution and basic laws.
However, if the Kurdistan Regional Government gets its own way, in alliance with multinational Kurdish movements (some of which are terrorist organizations funded by the U.S.), then yes. The broad aim of these groups are the establishment of a Kurdish region that spans the borders of Iraq, Syria, Iran and Turkey. Current terrorist organizations that are fighting for these aims include the PKK in Turkey and the MEK in Iran. Again though, we cannot be bias and must not forget the Kurdish Diaspora or the ill treatment of Kurds in these countries.

the difficulty is their fatherland stretches over the constraints of four states: Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Syria. Turkey will under no circumstances enable it, I doubt they'll in Iran. the right danger they have is in northern Iraq the place they have an autonomous government it incredibly is pretty much de-facto an autonomous state. yet they're delicate with the present association and comprehensive independence will danger a war. So the right danger they gets is a small state in northern Iraq and something of the Kurds will could flow there. that's no longer even taking into attention issues like the certainty the Kurds are divided into 2 dialects that are pretty much separate languages.

IraqNam is re-partitioning back to its Ottoman Empire structure so the Kurds are in the process of getting their own de facto nation.
The Ottomans were realistic enough to keep Iraq in its historical three-part partition of Sunni, Shiia & Kurd. Kurds are mostly Sunni, but not Arabs.
UK and the US tried to change that and created huge probs.

We should've gave the Kurds northern Iraq right after Desert Storm and called the place Kurdistan and ceded southern Iraq to Kuwait.
The war of 2003 probably could have been avoided.

No they will never get their own country. They are too big and the countries that they encompass will not be willing to give up that land. But as Liam said, does it really matter? They have their own government, army, and culture.

Yeh,what Liam said.
