These days the only certainty is that someplace and somewhere in the Middle East some militants will do something horrific. I hate to inform the Republican party or Fox News, but the United States of America is unable to control the multitude of terrorists, gangsters and nut cases who wander the streets of some Middle Eastern city. The latest episode occurred in Turkey. Ironically, this act of terrorism had absolutely not connection to al-Qaeda or to the H out his or to ISIS or to any other Muslim group in the area. It was an old fashioned Turkish example of terrorism. The Turkish government has refused to institute reforms that would benefit its 20% Kurdish minority and with each passing day insists that all must obey the Great Leader named Recep Erdogan. Believe it or not but there are still some old fashioned Marxists still alive in Turkey!
Members of the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Force entered a court room and captured a prosecutor. He was held as a hostage until Special Forces charged into the room which led to his murder. IN Turkey they do not believe in negotiation, they just blast ahead and the hell with a hostage who is now dead. The prosecutor was investigating a case in which an eleven year old boy was killed by Turkish police because he was at the scene of a demonstration. Frankly, it was amazing that in the world of Recep Erdogan anyone is placed on trial for killing an innocent protester.
I must admit surprise there are still some Marxists left in this world.
