Just after April 2003, euphoria started all over Kurdistan. After 80 years of wait, we thought that is it. We are in charge of ourselves for the first time.
At that time, I read a "Reuters" report qouting a western diplomat as saying "The Kurds are now in euphoria, when they wake up tomorrow and see the political dilemmas, that is when their hangover starts".
At that time, I thought this "Western Diplomat" might be a "Turkish diplomat" and God knows how sad he is. But after almost 2 years, I think he was right.
Just weeks before the elections, I think now is when the hangover starts. The Kurdish people are now in the hangover period, and only God knows how much they have drank the night before.
Hangover is here, and here, and here, and here. and this one too.
