- July 2015: In the predominantly Kurdish town of Suruc, near the Syrian border, over 30 people are killed in a suicide bombing, again blamed on “ISIS”
- October 2015: More than a hundred people are killed in a double-suicide bombing at a Kurdish peace rally in Ankara
- In January this year: a suicide bomber supposedly from “ISIS”, detonated a bomb in Istanbul’s Sultanahmet Square killing 10 people.
- On Feb. 10th: “the Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) armed wing People’s Protection Units (YPG) terrorists openly declared war on Turkey”. Funny how “ISIS” was doing their work for them a few weeks earlier.
- A few days later: the Kurdish PKK attacked Turkish military buses in Ankara killing 28 people.
- This past Sunday: a PKK offshoot Kurdish militant group killed 37 people in Ankara with a car bomb.
- Today: at least 5 people are killed in a bombing in a popular tourist location in Istanbul. Again, the Kurdish PKK is the prime suspect.
What we are looking at in Turkey is nearly a year of a terrorist destabilization campaign, much like the one being run by our “moderate” terrorists in Syria over the past 5 years and the previous one in Libya which finally resulted in the “humanitarian” bombing campaign run by Hillary Clinton and NATO.
As is always the case, the unconventional warfare campaign is ultimately about forcing a regime change. It was in Libya.( “We came. We saw. He died” Hillary Clinton ) It is in Syria ( “A political transition is required to end the violence in Syria.” Barack Obama ). And it is now the case in Turkey as well.
“Speaking to British daily The Times four days before the deadly car bomb that killed 35 civilians in the Turkish capital Ankara, Cemil Bayık, leader of the attack’s main culprit the PKK, said that now their main aim is to topple President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the Justice and Development (AK) Party government.” Daily Sabah
What’s interesting about this particular terror bombing is the fact that the Germans seemed to have known it was coming a few days ago. Well, to be honest, they didn’t “seem” to know it was coming, they did know it was coming… right down to the area where the bomb went off.
Psychic powers in Germany… or something else perhaps?
DW: The German embassy in Turkey warned tourists on Tuesday about potential terror attacks in the Turkish capital, Ankara. Now the embassy has been closed, and the threat level for Istanbul, where you are based, has also been raised. How have you experienced all of this?
Felix Schmidt: I live close to the German consulate general. From there I could see the increased security measures: an armored vehicle is parked in front of the building. But of course it is clear that in a huge city like Istanbul everyday life continues. Many people from Taksim Square in the center of the city have to walk directly by the consulate on their way to work. Everyday life has to continue in a city of 16 million people – despite a terror warning.
Felix Schmidt specifically mentioned Takim Square in Istanbul, Turkey when talking about the terror attack 2 days prior to the the attack.
As it just so happens, today’s bombing took place near Takim Square on Istiklal, St.
“An explosion has hit the popular Istiklal Street in central Istanbul’s Taksim square area, local media report, with casualties reported” al Jazeera
Here’s a map.
Yep. The head of some German political foundation (German Council on Foreign Relations?) had some kind of foreknowledge of a pending terrorist attack in Turkey, right down to the area in which it took place. In fact, the entire German government had foreknowledge of the attack, shutting down various German agencies and schools this past Thursday.
On Thursday, Germany closed both its embassy in Ankara and its general consulate in Istanbul because of the threat of a “possible imminent attack”.
The German school and the Goethe Institute in Istanbul, both of which are in the Taksim area, have also been shut. Istanbul’s governor on Friday accused the German diplomatic mission of creating panic and for reacting prematurely to “unconfirmed information”. Guardian
As far as predicting terror attacks go, that’s hitting grand-slam home run, isn’t it? Did Germany force the closure of any other German businesses and schools that weren’t located near Taksim Square or Istiklal, St.? I don’t know, but it doesn’t sound like it.
However this turns out, don’t expect any sympathy for the Turkish people from the so-called “anti-globalization” alternative media here in the states. They’ve all but signed up for the Obama Regime Change Operation Megaphony Party, looking to finally cash in on their “anti-war” street creds (as an example, check here, here, here, here and here)
I guess the Amy Goodman model turned out to be the most profitable one. And as I can barely get a donation help keep running this website these days, it looks like those guys made the pragmatic choice. After all, what’s another illegal regime change to them, right?
Please help keep us up and running if you can.
