Building a Special Relationship Between Kurdistan and the United States

It is in the interest of Free Kurdistan to strive to build a special relationship with the United States. However this will not be possible unless a future independent Kurdish state in the Syrian, Iraqi and Iranian sections of Kurdistan becomes a democracy. The triangular relationship between the US, Israel and Kurdistan is essential to the very survival of Free Kurdistan and the establishment of an independent Kurdish state in half of Kurdistan. This triangular relationship could well evolve into a special relationship between an independent Kurdistan and the United States. While the AANES (Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria) is well advanced in its feminist processes of democratization and liberalization is Iraqi Kurdistan alas less democratic than Arab Iraq. The KRG (Kurdistan Regional Government) should make a strategic decision in favor of building a special relationship with the United States. This however requires a commitment to responsible feminist democratization and liberalization as in NES (North and East Syria). This is a decision that only the KRG can make and it is not only essential to the prospects for the unification of half of Kurdistan into an independent state but is furthermore vital for deepening and broadening the relations with the world’s sole superpower. The KRG would be particularly well-advised to decide in favor of implementing AANES-style incremental and responsible feminist democratization and liberalization.
