Kurds Vote on Independence

More bad news for Turkey.

CNN: Iraqi Kurds cast their votes in historic referendum
Iraqi Kurds have started casting their ballots in a controversial independence referendum Monday as tensions between Iraq's largest ethnic minority and the Iraqi government in Baghdad intensified.

Voting got underway at 8 a.m. local time (1 a.m. ET) and will end at 6 p.m. local time (10 a.m. ET). The first results should be known within 72 hours.

...Both Iran and Turkey have sizable Kurdish minorities and fear a vote for independence in Iraq might galvanize movements in their countries.
One of the more realpolitik solutions for Islamic terror was to blow up the entire Middle East via Kurdish independence, forcing jihadists to fight internally.

TUR broke out of the head-and-shoulders pattern, but it remains in a downtrend. I expect the rally in 2017 will prove to be a headfake.
