The Kurds, ISIS, and U.S. National Security Interests
(U) The ethnic Kurds, with a population that dwarfs the pro-American predominately Muslim Albanians of Kosovo in the Balkans, have been fighting to create their own independent ethnic Kurdish state located on both sides of the Iraqi, Syrian, and Turkish borders. The pro-American Kurdish forces are already in place in this region and can help the United States defeat ISIS terrorists if armed immediately and effectively.
(U) The creation of an ethnic Kurdish state by the Kurds is more important to their fighters than any political arguments made by any Western leaders or religious arguments made by Christians and Muslims anywhere in the world.
(U) Much like the pro-American predominately Muslim population in Kosovo and Albania, where it was known internally well before the NATO bombing campaign in Serbia that the religion of the Albanian is "Albanianism”, it can be argued that the religion of the Kurds is "Kurdism” – the creation of their own ethnic Kurdish state.
(U) It serves U.S. national security interests to support the Kurds along the Iraqi, Syrian, and Turkish borders with arms and a NATO-style bombing campaign directed against all ISIS assets.
(U) The Turkish government -- a long-standing NATO member -- will not support any substantial effort to militarily assist the Kurds along their border. The Turkish government's interests do not supersede U.S. National Security interests.
(U) It serves U.S. national security interests to replace ISIS terrorists alongside the Iraqi, Syria, and Turkish borders with a pro-American Kurdish ethnic state, much like it has benefited the West by being allied with a pro-American predominately Muslim population by the governments of Kosovo and Albania.
(U) The creation of another pro-West ethnic state made up of a predominately Muslim population will send “shock waves” to terrorists who to date have effectively exploited religious differences among civilians and an ineffective U.S. anti-terrorism policy in the Middle East.
