Kurdistan Question


How does the geography of kurdistan make it more difficult for the Kurds to unite for a movement for their own country? Any opinion?

First off it involves a lot of different countries. Secondly the land is mostly mountains and desert.

Well, not so much the terrain, but if Kurds want to unite, they have to take pieces away from 4 nations. Not going to happen any time soon. Although that won't stop extremists from resorting to the bomb.

It's odd. The other day I saw a different version of a potential Kurdish State map. It was larger than that; even including some cities nearby the Med and Black Sea. Oh, was that Greater Armenia? Bulgaria? Greece? I am so confused with those.

There is no defined map for Kurdistan , however I doubt they had that land in west Iran, sure NW is Kurd populated but I don't think the area of khuzestan.
