Terrorist attacks around the world

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says one of the attackers at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport blew himself up outside, giving the other two the opportunity to get inside the building.

"When the terrorists couldn't pass the regular security system, when they couldn't pass the scanners, police and security controls, they returned and took out their weapons out of their suitcases and opened fire at random at the security check," he said Wednesday.

Yes, why is Turkey all of a sudden a hotbed of random bombings and attacks? Used to be in the East with the on going Kurdish war, now it's all over the place.
Please edit "Horgan" to "Premier Horgan" to show solidarity towards a successful tenure. Remember: The NDP Government: 2017 thread is not in the Bickering Room.

Two questions, when did Turkey pledge allegiance to Russia? And second, what would Israel get out of attacking Turkey, of all places?

Because of gun culture. If they would just ban ISIS from owning guns, none of this would ever happen.

Yes, he apologized for shooting down a plane, not pledging allegiance.

yes, definitely. It's really quite clear.

It's sad to see what's going on in Turkey right now. Although it doesn't appear that safe, I would urge people to go and see the historical sites of Turkey before those ISIS nutbars blow them all up, like the Taliban did in Afghanistan and ISIS is systematically doing in Syria right now.

I can't figure out why anyone would ask why they are bombing Turkey. It is to cause terror and disrupt normal activities like flying. Has ISIL ever worried about killing their own, killing other Muslims friends or whatever. Never that I know of. Look at the innocent citizens they have killed in their own country, the destruction of cities, historic sites etc. just for the sake of destruction. They just kill and destroy without worrying about who or where. They are extreme terrorists, nothing more nothing less.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

Official: Turkey bombers from Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan

story at link (oh, it was ISIL/ISIS and yes this makes them ISLAMIC terrorists for those who don't know what ISIS or ISIL stands for).
