    A 140 people have been killed in Allahu Akbar bombings in the last couple of months, plus a 1000 injured. Right in the Turkish capital. The religion of violence will never accept civilization until moderates start fighting back instead of sweeping barbaric mentalities under the rug.

    Each one of these deaths is on smug, muslim moderates. Cowards, of the highest order.

    One conspiracy theory I've heard about the October Ankara bombings is that the government is responsible since they were targeting protests against the government.

    I don't know how much credence to put into it but the government has proven to be very heavy handed especially when it comes to the Kurds and sympathizers.

    Military transports are a legitimate target. I would say this is an act of war, like attacking the Pentagon, and not a terrorist act, like attacking the WTC.

    I think this is a case of "militant separatists being militant separatists" than "Islam being Islamic".

    obviously not true, all 100+ muslims that were killed and 900+ muslims injured actively cheered as the explosions maimed their children and blew their faces off.

    As many a wise man once said,

    Seasons come and Seasons go

    But Muslims killing humans in the name of religion

    Will go on, forever.

    End quote.

    To me, it is equally sad whether the victims are muslims or westerners. But when you see that every western attack in the past few years was orchestrated by a "radicalized" moderate, get your ear on the ground in mosque's and see what the moderates are saying, you'll understand there are deep rooted ideological and cultural flaws that have led to muslims slaughtering other muslims since the beginning of Islam (7th century AD). Simple flaws that moderates choose not to address.

    No other ideology comes close to the systematic killing we've seen for over a millennia.

    Islam needs reform.

    Kurdish group claims responsibility for terror attack in Turkey

    ANKARA, Turkey -- A Kurdish militant group has claimed responsibility for a car bomb attack in the Turkish capital Ankara which killed 28 people Wednesday.

    In a statement posted on its website, the Kurdistan Freedom Falcons said Friday it carried out the attack to avenge Turkish military operations against Kurdish rebels in southeast Turkey.

    The Turkey-based group is an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK.

    The rush hour car-bomb attack on Wednesday evening targeted buses carrying military personnel and injured dozens of people in addition to those killed.

    Turkey had blamed a U.S.-backed Syrian Kurdish militia group for the attack, saying they had acted in collaboration with the PKK.

    They vowed strong retaliation against the perpetrators, threatening to further complicate the Syria conflict.

    The attack came as Turkey grapples with an array of issues, including renewed fighting with the Kurdish rebels, the threat from Islamic State militants and the Syria refugee crisis. The blast was the second deadly bombing in Ankara in four months.

    Turkey has been pressing the U.S. to cut off support to the Kurdish Syrian militias, which Turkey regards as terrorists because of their affiliation with the PKK.

    The U.S. already lists the PKK as a terror group. But Washington relies heavily on the Syrian Democratic Union Party, or PYD, and its military wing, the People's Protection Units, or YPG, in the battle against the Islamic State group and has rejected Turkish pressure.

    Turkey's military said after that its jets conducted cross-border raids against Kurdish rebel positions in northern Iraq hours after the attack and struck a group of about 60 to 70 PKK rebels. The Turkish jets attacked PKK positions in northern Iraq's Haftanin region, hitting the group of rebels which it said included a number of senior PKK leaders, the military said. The claim couldn't be verified.

    On Thursday, six soldiers were killed in southeastern Turkey after PKK rebels detonated a bomb on a road linking the cities of Diyarbakir and Bingol as their military vehicle was passing by, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

    Turkey's air force has been striking PKK positions in northern Iraq since a fragile two-and-a-half year-old peace process with the group collapsed in July, reigniting a fierce three-decade old conflict.

    In October, suicide bombings blamed on ISIS targeted a peace rally outside the main train station in Ankara, killing 102 people in Turkey's deadliest attack in years.
