Paris Attacks: Turkish Soccer Fans Boo Minute's Silence

I've been following the games, they are always fun. Now, I don't know if I want to even watch anymore. Hopefully, I'll snap out of it, but what a bummer.

Outrageous. Incidentally, Kemal Ataturk would turn in his grave.

The victims. I originally entered the entire title, but the last of it was cut off. Guess it was too long.

Turkey apparently also purchases a lot of oil from ISIS and has strong links to ISIS. Why does anyone anywhere think western nations have any sort of real ally in Turkey?

1) NATO cannot give up on Turkey, as they are strategically important in that region.
2) Out of all sports fans, Soccer fans are dumbest.

It is NOT one world, no matter how much some would like to see it.
Once again, it is "US" and "THEM".
they don't like US.
In fact, they want to KILL US!
Nothing they do surprises me.

Honestly I get sick of all the moments of silence before events. It does not mean I do not think the incident or people the moment of silence is meant to honor is not important but I just do not "get" them in certain venues.

I never boo though.
