    Default Terror Attack at Istanbul Airport Turkey.

    Terror attack at the airport in Turkey today.
    All hell broke loose apparently. Up to 3 suicide bombers, lots of gunfire just reported on the radio as I am typing.

    How much more of this do we have to take until the civilized world decides that we've had enough and it is time to do something about it?

    It sounds like the police thwarted the attack to some extent.
    One traveler who was witness said that security and police were alerted to two of the bombers acting suspiciously, and when approached, a firefight ensued before they detonated their explosives. The two were by the X-Ray area, but were making their way to the International Departure/Arrivals, so definitely could have done a lot more damage. Still a pretty grave situation there right now. at least 28 dead, and many more wounded. it's still preliminary, and there's no verification on this account, but it sounds pretty accurate from other accounts so far.
    No idea where the third detonated himself, but the two were close together at the time. Probably like the last airport bombing. One plays lookout and motivator, and tells the others where to stand to cause the most carnage to the targets they want.
    Just sick.

    What exactly would you guys recommend we do? Personally I think all "we" should do is insist that part of the world handle their own problems and stop getting involved and making things worse.

    I think Israel already does that but none of the others do. But your right invasion/nation building is not the answer.

    Why? Remember, it's not radical Islam. I bet Obama would spin it as an "isolated act of terror".

    Fucking dunce.

    "Isolated incidents" like this are paving the way for a Trump presidency, IMO.
    And for the record, I hope he wins the election. WAAAY past time to shake things up.

    I don't have a comprehensive plans, but here are a few things that we should do.

    **End or severely re-calibrate the drone program. We've killed thousands of civilians, including women and children, and those are just the strikes we know about. We kill about 30 "unknowns" for every target we get. Sometimes we think we got the target and it turns out we didn't. That's because often times the intelligence is garbage, yet we act on it anyway: "'There's countless instances where I've come across intelligence that was faulty . . . It's stunning the number of instances when selectors are misattributed to certain people. And it isn't until several months or years later that you all of a sudden realize that the entire time you thought you were going after this really hot target, you wind up realizing it was his mother's phone the whole time.'" The reason the White House doesn't admit to killing so many civilians is that when they found out how many they were killing, they redfined their parameters to count "all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants."

    Regardless of tiptoeing around what we call this in order not to offend non-radicalized Muslims, you're going to do it anyway if you are killing 1 target for every 30 civilians at best, 1 out of 50 at worst. If you're possibly willing to kill 30-50 'good' Muslims for every 1 'bad' Muslim, it won't matter whether you say "radical Islam" or not.

    **Stop manufacturing terrorists to pad your stats and actually burn all of your calories finding actual terrorists. Unfortunately, when we hear that the FBI stopped an active plot, it often is a plot started by the FBI itself. Basically, they use informants to whom they feed a "plot" and get them to recruit dimwitted accomplices who sometimes go along. Take Derrick Shereef who was homeless, and an FBI informant offered him a place to crash. When he just would never follow through with securing guns and hand grenades, the FBI, through the informant, had an "arms" dealer show up who told Shereef he would trade him hand grenades and a gun for his stereo speakers (which should clue anyone in to how 'gangster' this Shereef actually was, if he thought that was real). Of course, that doesn't make guys like him innocent, but he isn't tied to an actual terrorist group. "Stopping" him counts, for the government, as foiling a terrorist plot. Meanwhile, these are members of law enforcement NOT actively searching out real plots.

    Security theater doesn't make us safer, but does make us less safe by taking investigators off of real cases.

    Mike, I don't have all the answers, but that would be a start. Maybe we should also look into developing and utilizing our own energy sources instead of buying their bloody oil as well. Let them figure out how they're going to fund their economies on their own.

    Instead we've got assholes like Obama who insist on derailing Keystone XL and forbidding us from drilling for our own oil on our own land. So we buy it from those savages over there. I'm aware that not all of our oil comes from there, but at this point, one barrel is one too many IMO. Put the goddamn Saudis over a barrel (literally) and tell them that they need to clean this mess up or we'll crash their entire economy. Instead we're all chummy chummy with them because we need their oil.

    I'm tired of innocent people being murdered by these fucks and I want it to stop. Whatever it takes to do that I'm for. And if it takes the entire civilized world mobilizing from an economic and military perspective then I am in full support.
