Iran takes a stand over Kurds / Kaveh L Afrasiabi

Kurdish leaders in Iraq face tough decisions with respect to the central government in Baghdad and powerful neighbors Iran and Turkey. The Kurds are confronted with a formidable regional alliance that threatens to dislodge the ethnic group's considerable gains made since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.

That there are more programs about the Kurdish culture, language and their province shown in the Iranian TV.


It's not a taboo any more?

Great! I'm thankful to Mr. Afrasiabi for mentioning the fact that Iran can be run as a federal system some day.
Afrasiabi says, "Should neighboring Iraq's experimentation with federalism prove productive - and this will be a matter of more than just a few years - it is likely that Iraq's example will influence Iran"
I sure look froward to the day the Federal Iran comes into existance.
