36 dead, 147 injured so far.

Apparently, there were at least 3 attackers who first opened fire, entered the airport, reached to the passport control and then detonated the vests.

God bless the victims and give strength to their close ones.

there are different reports about the incident.

consensus is that there are 3 detonations that took place. one at the international arrivals' entrance, one at te intl. departure and one at the car park.

it seems that first attacker opened fire at the very first security gate after being recognised by the police. they hes been shot by te police, fell down and detonated his vest. one other rushed in to terminal and the other went to the parking lot and detonated after a firefight with the police & spec.ops.

i dont know very well the details but one thing that i know is that there are children among the dead & injured...

children... what kind of men can hurt a child... i am speechless and all i can think of is vengeance... but not by the hand of god but men... we should hurt them, annihilate them and etc...

f.ck the politics, f.ck the states, f.ck the religions, f.ck all... those were children!!!!.....

i hate the world... i hate the politics, i hate the ignorants who put those bastards to the top of our govts.. and by that i mean ALL the govts not only ours...

children died last night... what can be more serious that this???...

Such an indiscriminate attack is terrible. The latest is 41 dead and 239 injured.

An attack on a Turkish military base is something I would expect from the PKK, but I can't imagine even they would stoop so low as to blow up a civilian airport. Something I've never understood is how some groups think that blowing up civilians at random would help win anyone to their cause or achieve any political concessions.

God willing, the animals responsible for this will be hunted down and exterminated.

Does this in any way advance PKK objectives ?

If not then this happens when lower downs call the shots. Leadership is out of contact or disabled somehow.

The suspicion is that it was ISIS rather than PKK. Of course, I don't see how killing Turkish civilians advances ISIS objectives either...

No groups have claimed the attack yet as far as I know.

US and German anti-terror specialists assume it's IS; the Turkish government for obvious reasons won't acknowledge anything like that unless they positively identify them (... and change their politics). Supposedly security officials in Turkey have stated the perpetrators "may have been foreigners", which is as good as an inofficial confirmation that they assume it's IS too.

Kato,

every source claimed that every evidence shows IS.

with the beating that pkk took and the public support they lost, i think that they can not dare such attack.

bringing war to the cities backfired badly to pkk in every way.

the worst one is the lost public support. the commoners now are saying that "its been 30 years and you can not defeat the state, stop it and let us live & do our businesses"

this is the only good result of that so-called peace period of AKP's peace policy. Diyarbakir tasted a relative wealth (they even built 2 big malls) & peace and liked it. tho AKP&Erdogan should be put on trial for overlooking pkk's stockpiling guns & recruiting period..

On the surface of it this seems to be a blunder by ISIS as this might lead to the further tightening of the Turkish border and choking of their supply lines.

On the other hand I wonder if ISIS is not trying to achieve exactly this to stem the desertion of their own fighters. Either way another step towards oblivion for the Iraqi and Syrian branches of IS.

Perps have supposedly been identified as a Russian, a Kyrgyz and an Uzbek.

ok, the leadership is further away.


ethe Turkish government for obvious reasons won't acknowledge anything like that unless they positively identify them (... and change their politics).
Which is why i don't understand why IS would do this. Turkeys role is pretty grey here.

Sounds like a 'foreign hand' reason. Always safe when in doubt.

How intact is the PKK leadership otherwise this is lower downs taking out their own agendas. its no longer about the cause but them. Loose canons.

So does this mean no more cease fire with the PKK ?

nothing is sure with Erdogan... he dances far better than best belly dancer in the world.

just check what he sad about IHH & Mavi Marmara incident. in 2014 he sad "i gave the permission to ihh to sail there" yesterday he sad "they did not asked for permission, we ,as the country, we were already sending help thru legal ways"...

he apologised Russia about the plane incident & re-instated relations with Israel despite all his past sayings.

so he is a dancer and a shame to the country.

Remember this back in March

http://www.worldaffairsboard.com/showthread.php?t=66349

Said it was the 3rd such attack in ankara. Targeted the riot police so against the state, PKK or its affiliates.

The airport is now the fourth, in Istanbul.

Is this really a different group or still PKK.

Guess Turkey is having their own Mujaheddins.

Guys they trained for a war in Chechnya and who were left alone, found a new lord and executed their revenge.

Kerem , for you .and all who are waking up .

Once upon a time there was a king who wanted to go fishing.
He called the royal weather forecaster and inquired as to the weather
forecast for the next few hours. The weatherman assured him that there
was no chance of rain in the coming days.
So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen. On the way he met a
farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said,
"Your Majesty, you should return to the palace at once because in
just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area".
The king was polite and considerate, he replied: "I hold the palace
meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and
experienced professional. And besides, I pay him very high wages. He
gave me a very different forecast. I trust him and I will continue on
my way." So he continued on his way.
However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky. The
King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon
seeing them in such a shameful condition.
Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire
the professional. Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the
prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster.
The farmer said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about
forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey.
If I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain."
So the king hired the donkey.
And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the
government and occupy its highest and most influential positions.
And the practice is unbroken to this day.

The part that doesn't make sense is why is this happening when AKP is in office. You would expect some understanding. A modus vivendi

Course mad dogs have no master and are a different matter altogether.
