Could you maybe provide more details? Why did they lose? Where they retiring or where they losing support? What do the new leaders stand for? This is more a stub than a article.

Kurdistan is a baby. Give her time to grow. I am happy - I have wanted this for YEARS. I am a Christian in the USA who loves Kurds. Turkey needs to be tossed out of NATO. USA owes Kurds backing and protection.
