The possibility of establishing Kurdistan during Biden's tenure

 Joe Biden has been elected unofficially in the US election. There have been festivals all over the world. However, the PKK supporters were more than happy with the news. PKK supporters erupted in fireworks at Erbil, Sulaymaniyah, Al Hasakah, Kobane to celebrate Biden's victory. 

In this exhilaration was the dream of a new beginning. The PKK sees Biden's victory as a return to the Obama administration's in White House and a victory for Washington's ruling elite.

Both the Obama administration and Washington's authorities are in favour of an autonomous region under the PKK in Syria. So the question is, will the world see the Kurdish spring again?


 Syria is the country stuck in the so-called 'Arab Spring' revolution of the Obama-Biden and Washington powers. The Syrian civil war has not stopped for almost a decade. 

Enemies and allies have changed over time. Various terrorist organizations like ISIS have emerged. But how the emergence of ISIS at the speed of a storm like the Taliban at the tip of the American nose is still a matter of curiosity for the people of the Middle East. 

Once again, Washington allied itself with Assad and the self-proclaimed terrorist organization PKK to eradicate ISIS terrorism, which completely changed the course of Middle East politics.

Biden was one of the few powerbrokers in Washington to use the PKK to fight the ISIS. Despite Turkey's request, Biden persuaded Obama about the PKK. In the last 45 years or so of his political career, Biden has been friends with three main parties. 

First, the powerhouse of Washington; Second, Israel and lastly the Kurds. It all started in 1990 when Biden was a member of the Senate. Biden then moved a resolution in the Senate against Turkey as Ankara launched an operation to oust the PKK from the Kurdish region of Iraq. 

In the following years, Biden-Kurdish bilateral relations became stable. Despite being a Democrat, Biden voted in favour of the Iraq war, supporting the formation of an "autonomous region" for the Kurds in post-war Iraq, and accepting the PKK as an ally of the United States in the latest Syrian war; The bilateral has made this relationship inviolable.

By capitalizing on this inviolable relationship, the Syrian PKK-led Mazlum kubni wants to build an autonomous region on the Syrian-Turkish border. Malum Kobani's real name is Ferhat Abdi Sahin. He was once the commander of the PKK.

 The Americans have changed his name to Mazlum Kubani. Critics say Abdi Sahin has changed his ideological position along with the name change. After winning the election, Shaheen congratulated Biden and called for the deployment of US troops in Syria, to start another spring by using US troops as a shield.

Ankara is the first obstacle for US-PKK forces. In Ankara's eyes, there is no difference between the PKK and the Democratic Forces, and both are terrorist organizations. 

But Washington does not consider the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) a terrorist organization. The main problem is here. Ankara has conducted several operations in Syria over the past few years to keep the SDF away from its borders, despite strong opposition from the United States. 

But under the changed circumstances, if Biden can bring both sides to a solution in Ankara's economic woes, the world could see another Kurdish spring.

Second, while the United States has consistently helped the PKK, Ankara has united the Kurdish tribes against the Arabs and PKK on the Syrian-Turkish border, much like Libya. 

The anti-PKK and anti-US attitudes of these tribes, which have been the victims of PKK and US drone strikes at various times in history, are extremely active. This activation could potentially block spring. Even if the US-PKK goes to war against the forces, it will come as no surprise.

Third, PKK's long feud with the Barzani family in Iraq. Ordinary Kurds respect the Barzani family. Historically the Barzani family is close to Ankara. 

When the Barzani family did not have a passport during Saddam's rule, the Barzani family travelled around the world with a passport issued by Ankara. In the recent Kurdish-populated region of Syria, the Barzani-backed Kurdistan Democratic Party has organized against the PKK's sole dominance.

The regional Kurds have formed political alliances by bringing together small political groups. This internal conflict could potentially stall the spring.

Ankara's position against this spring with the support of the US is miserable. Ankara has repeatedly rejected the offer of talks, along with its refusal to give legitimacy to the SDF. If the Biden administration fails to settle Ankara and the SDF, clashes are inevitable. Biden has repeatedly declared his support for the SDF in this inevitable conflict. 

The conscious reader may ask, will Ankara go to war against the US-PKK join forces? There is no seemingly straightforward answer to this question. However, without war, the breakup of Turkey will not be possible. 

If war breaks out again, there is a possibility of US economic blockade on Ankara and expulsion from NATO. Ankara will have to find a solution to these possibilities during Biden's tenure. So it may not be possible for Ankara to avoid bad times in the future.

Trump has repeatedly spoken out against his Kurdish aversion. Not as a friend, but Trump wants to see the SDF as a watchdog of the US Petroleum Company in Syria. The Syrian Kurds have made Trump's wish a reality.

 SDF signed an agreement with a US oil company last summer. In addition to the sale of gasoline, the United States has allocated 300 million in 2020 and 200 million in the proposed 2021 budget for the SDF. With this huge amount of financial and military aid, the help of the Biden administration is signalling a possible Kurdish spring.
