Contrary to what this article says, Turkey is in league with the PKK. She is attempting to split the Syrian Kurds to prevent their autonomy. More on this later. Ted Belman
Turkey must work with Syria’s Kurds

Turkey’s support for the uprising against Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, has been challenged during the last week or so as Kurds in the north-east of Syria have taken control of several towns and cities.
The ploy, if it succeeds, will bring a further extension of Kurdish automony in the Middle East, complementing Iraq’s booming Kurdistan region, where 5 million Kurds govern themselves as a federal entity within Iraq and with minimal interference from the central government in Baghdad.
