    This is amazing. Turkey is not a "developing nation." Appears initially that factions seek a return to more secular government, which Erdogan has been drifting away from.

    Wonder what tDonald knew. The Trump Towers in Istanbul were his first in Europe.

    This is the 4th or 5th time the military has stepped in when it strays toward fundamentalism, I believe.

    Not being up to date on the politics of Turkey...do we (USA) have a "side" that, if they succeed would be much better or much worse than if the other prevails?

    Obama's implicit critique of Gingrich was a part of broader point he made Friday in response to the Nice attack, which he called "sickening."

    "It's been a difficult several weeks in the United States, but the divide that exists is not between races and ethnicities and religions," Obama said. "And those impulses, when we do not speak out against them and build institutions to protect people from those impulses, they can take over. They can be unleashed, so all of us have responsibilities, not just a few."
    Obama said the fight against terrorists will be won when the United States "stays true to our values."

    IINM it is actually written into the Constitution that they have to if they feel secularism is threatened.

    And now, Munich,Germany.

    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...07-22-13-37-20

    Strangely enough, buried in that story was this tidbit I hadn't heard before:

    It's the second attack in Germany in less than a week. On Monday, a 17-year-old Afghan wounded four people in an ax-and-knife attack on a regional train near the Bavarian city of Wuerzburg, and another woman outside as he fled. All survived, although one man from the train remains in life-threatening condition. The attacker was shot and killed by police.

    Re: Global War on Terror 8 - Winter is Coming

    Lest anyone think this was another ISIS attack, the killer is David Sonboly, an 18 year old high schooler born in Munich with two motives: he was mentally ill and seeking revenge for being bullied & he was a right-wing nut who hated immigrants and wanted to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the attack in Norway that killed 77 young socialist leaders.

    It no longer matters much for those to whom you are probably directing that message, tica. All they see now is We are in danger and better start doing something about it. At first, it had to be danger from outside our own cave; now, any danger works.
