Syrian Kurds repel ISIS attack on Kobane

Jeremiah foresaw three nations of the Medes -- now called Kurds -- as drawing up battle lines against the land of the Chaldeans. After decades of battling each other, the Iranian and Iraqi factions of the Kurds finally consolidated their power under the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), and control the northern provinces of Iraq.
What is missing in the scenario is the western Kurds, the Turkish/Syrian Kurds, the "Ararat" Kurds. If they were to join the coalition of Kurds, the three "nations" would then be unified, fulfilling the prophecy.
With the break up of Syria, the stage is set to allow them to join their Kurdish brethren. The KRG has announced support for the Kurds of Rojava.
Will the current fighting in Syrian Kurdistan result in this unification of the nations of the Medes? Are the current events in Iraq/Syria the fulfillment of Jeremiah's 2,600-year-old prophecy?
