Kurdistan various proposed boarders, Clans, & Ethnic make-up of Towns

Just like in Scotland and Ireland, Boarders on ethnic, population, and history will always be argued. These are just some of the maps and surveys available. I will be updating and adding more maps regarding this. However history and where one looks weather the past or present will be the argument for eons. I would like to see the Kurdish people get their own Nation some day. But for now further autonomy in their native lands. They have some autonomy in Iraq, We will likely see Syrian Kurds get autonomy, they did not have much before now. But there is more Kurds in Turkey than Iraq and Syria together. Yet they have been persecuted by the Erdogan Muslim Brotherhood Regime in Turkey. Iran is another nation with Kurdish native population that need more autonomy. The Kurdish native religion was mostly Yazidi. Various military campaigns like Alexander the Great (or not so great if your one who's government you overtake) Other campaigns/invaders where the Mongrels, Persians, various Christians sects,, Muslims, and on and on.

The vast Kurdish homeland consists of about 200,000 square miles of territory. Its area is roughly equal to that of France or of the states of California and New York combined.
Kurdistan straddles the mountainous northern boundaries of the Middle East, separating the region from the former Soviet Union. It resembles an inverted letter V, with the joint pointing in the direction of the Caucasus and the arms toward the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf.
GeographyIn the absence of an independent state, Kurdistan is defined as the areas in which Kurds constitute an ethnic majority today. Kurdish ethnic domains border strategically on the territories of the three other major ethnic groups of the Middle East: the Arabs to the south, the Persians to the east, and the Turks to the west. In addition to these primary ethnic neighbors, there are many smaller ethnic groups whose territories border those of the Kurds, such as the Georgians (including the Lâz) and the Armenians to the north, the Azeris to the northeast, the Lurs to the southeast, and the Turkmens to the southwest.
