Whilst most worlds’ governments have come to acknowledge the credibility and legitimacy of an already existing de facto Kurdish state, a Kurdish President cheerfully and willfully helps further the noble cause of his own people by acting quite in reverse.

Disavowal of Kurdish nation’s existential rights might in the interim placate some bogus Arab, Turkish and Iranian cronies, but incontestably, it can not be a vouch for continuation of any president’s tenure, nor will it help boost approval rate as some presidents might assume, especially among the increasingly growing younger and more patriotic Kurdish generation.

Every now and then, our president pops up for an interview in foreign press and couches some aimless views which do not mirror even those of his own advocates. Leave alone the overwhelming majority of Kurdish populace. In a military tribunal,

Kurdish right to freedom and independence is not contingent on the approval of any state or president.

Through institution and state building efforts through out the history of unfounded Iraq, the Kurds have proven to all the skeptics that they deserve to attain their decades-long target of internationally recognized statehood. They have run their own as well as those of Iraqi governments affairs.

Peshmarga forces are authorized to threaten unilateral actions or mandatory resignation of any Kurdish or Arab president that does not recognize Kurdish nation’s statehood rights. Interestingly, Saddam Hussein of Iraq had not negated Kurdish independence rights as many times as has our Kurdish president cited.

A Kurdish independent state will come into existence by 2015, and Talabanis pointless assertions are not buyable any more, nor can they deter or hamper the crystallization of an independent Kurdistan.
