Turkey: Terrorism and Tourism

Postby GreekIslandGirl » Mon Aug 10, 2015 12:14 pm

Terrorism in Turkey has escalated. Tourists have been warned by HMGov ...


Turkey - Terrorism:
There is a high threat from terrorism. Attacks could be indiscriminate and could affect places visited by foreigners.

There has been a sharp spike in violence between Turkey’s security forces and rebels of the Kurdistan Workers’ party, or PKK.

The Guardian view on Turkey’s air strikes against Isis: dangerous territory
Editorial: Turkey was forced to act because of the contradictions in its own policies. It is vital the country now refreshes its peace talks with the PKK

The latest attacks also come as Turkey is taking a more active role against Islamic State militants. Last month it conducted aerial strikes against Isis positions in Syria and agreed to let the US-led coalition use its bases for its fight against the militants. This followed a suicide bombing blamed on Isis which killed 32 people and after Isis militants fired at Turkish soldiers from across the border in Syria, killing one soldier.

On Sunday, the US military announced that a detachment of six F-16 fighter jets had arrived at Turkey’s southern Incirlik air base.

In 2013, a suicide bombing at the US embassy in the capital Ankara killed a Turkish security guard and injured one other person. The DHKP-C claimed responsibility for the attack.

Turkey basically has a provisional government waging several wars simultaneously.

Violence will continue to escalate, the economy will continue to falter.

A fatal voyage in to the abyss.

Most of the tourists that go to Turkey don't know one end of the country from the other, half of them could probably not even find Turkey on a map. They see the words Turkey and terrorism in the same sentence and think of what happened in Tunisia. My friends are due to go there next month, they are having second thoughts now even though they are regular visitors. Erdogan started his recent drive against ISIS and PKK for his own political reasons, the Turkish tourism industry could be the biggest loser but then that's the price you pay for re-electing a neo-ottoman nazi sultan. :lol:

I would never condone the loss of innocent life, but this is probably also the price of getting rid of him.
