The PKK made an alliance with the US and Israel, they expose the Marxist lies on imperialism. America is not always on the side of good, but it is most certainly not always on the side of bad. Take Vietnam, it was the United States that were anti-imperialist trying to defend Vietnamese Buddhist culture from the Communist imperialist empire building. The US however incompetently did try to encourage reform of South Vietnam and the empowerment of South Vietnam's Buddhist majority against the corrupt Papist ruling elite. There is a certain irony to the fact that under America's first Papist Presidency, the CIA aided the assassination of South Vietnam's Papist presidency in an attempt to weaken the Papists stranglehold over South Vietnam.
I would also note that the CIA also supplied arms to the Tibetans in their fight against the Han Communist imperialist invaders.
