You don't seem to get the Turkish media report. It does not make any 
claim that the Baathists are okay with a future Kurdistan in Syria. It 
only claims that Assad and the Russians have combined with the Kurds 
(and the Afghan Shi'ites, the Iraqi militias, Hizbollah and perhaps men 
from Mars) to annihilate Syrian rebels. If that is your idea of radical 
democracy, I'm having none of it.
