Where do your numbers come from? There is almost on daily basis information about conflicts between the Arabs and the Kurds. Some dead, wounded, taken as hostages or imprisoned are nothing I would notice or find worth to mention here. The body count there is certainly much greater than in Chechnya today, which is regarding security from terrorism comparable to Europe if not better. That the Kosovo Albanians, who have with NATO support genocided the Serbians out of Kosovo, want the US protecting them is, btw, obvious, as well as that the Kurds would be no more than the environment of some US base and would have no chance for a separate state, and for genociding the local Arab populations out of the regions with oil, would do everything to get the US support for this. Where you see double standards in comparison with Kosovo is beyond me, both are cases of criminal US wars and US occupation, supporting dubious nationalist movements. International law is in all cases on the side of the state which fights a separatist movement, and against the US, which has started wars of aggression directly to occupy Kosovo, indirectly in Russia by supporting the Chechen jihadists, as well as in Syria, where the US supported Al Qaida and IS, and, after they have lost that war, switched to supporting Kurdish separatists.
