I won't respond to the first part, per this isn't a current events thread.I thought that Assad and the Kurds could be reconciled?
A Russian expansion into Antioch would have created a huge salient, no?
Now, to the second, recall I mentioned the would-be American mandate agreed to under Versailles? Well, it is most of Eastern Anatolia, including what is today Turkish Kurdistan. So, I guess I am suggesting that the League of Nations mandate to a Kerensky-led "peasant-Bourgeois" coalition Russia would look a lot like the mandate which USA (at least Wilson) was prepared to administer, with simply some of Northern Syria appended to it.
Or did I get ahead of myself with that explanation? Will check tomorrow...
