The Kurds and the Scots: Everybody's Op-ed Today?

I thought it would be worth a comparison but apparently every op-ed editor on earth thought so, too. I guess it was inevitable for everyone from Kurds to Scots to Middle East analysts to draw the obvious parallels today

Robin Wright at the WSJ blog: "Will Scotland, and Kurdistan, Break Away?"

NYT: "From Kurdistan to Texas, Scots Spur Separatists."

Kurdish news site Rudaw: "World Kurds and Catalans Look to Scotland for Success."

Think Scotland: "Kurdistan: Are there lessons for Scottish identity?"

Hurriyet Daily News:"Turks, Kurds in Scotland eagerly awaiting independence referendum"

So I guess it's been done
