Baran , 22 August 2011 , 15:09 [A Kurdish post on Today's Zaman] "All that Mr Erdogan needs to do to end the bloodshed between Kurds and Turks is to address all citizens of Turkey and say the Kurdish citizens of Turkey are entitled to the same rights, freedoms and status Turkey so aggressively advocates for a relatively handful Turks who are citizens of another independent country,that is, Cyprus! ......

Do his cronies financially, economically benefit from the senseless spilling of young Turkish and Kurdish men"
