Welcoming in the New Year, Turks were celebrating past midnight at a fashionable nightclub when in a flash, a shooter squeezed the trigger killing 39 and injuring dozens. He is on the loose, described as armed and dangerous – while the manhunt continues.
Number One and Two Suspects, “ISIS & outlawed PKK aka the KURDISH WORKERS PARTY” .
That is the official line, but the REAL SUSPECT is Recep Erdogan; a ferocious killer in his own right. Erdogan has thrown in with Russia and al-Assad against ISIS in Syria; his aim is to prevent the Kurds from dividing up the spoils. The Kurds occupy and control large swaths of the Middle East, their numbers are estimated at 25 million.
Turkey is fast becoming an autocratic state. If you don’t show allegiance to Caesar Erdogan you are dead. The journalists, lawyers, advocates of democracy, PKK, Kurdish sympathizers, political opponents, Gulen, United States and all the other suspects are now the focus of a diminutive dictator with a voracious appetite. The days of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk are over.
