Ummm, not sure yet. TAK (the Freedom Falcon splinter group of the PKK) has been very vocal about trying to drive away tourism from Turkey over the past two months or so. The ISIS bombings in Turkey have been straight suicide bombings, often targeting police and soldiers. Plus, Turkey just rolled up two ISIS cells and seized all their explosives.

So I could go either way on this one right now... We'll know in a couple days.

Looks like they got that guy before he could do too much damage. Live leak video showing mostly shot people, not people that were victims of bombs.

Turkey's tourism has already tank prior to this explosion. Russia ban Turkey charter services and various other services. A good portion of tourism came from Russia. Erdoğan should have though about his countries economy before shooting down that Russian military plane. Now this will make things a lot worst. Here is a report form the bbc news:

We can continue to thank Mr.Obama and Hillary Clinton for destabilizing the whole region with the creation of ISIS with their help. With so many refugees crossing through Turkey into Europe and the US, be prepared! We are next.

This one looks like a security officer shot the terrorist when he was running . Looks like the terrorist drops a gun. The security officer shot him some more , but then realized the suicide vest and ran away .

It actually indicates a laziness of folks who love to paint the whole ..Like ALL blacks are Thugs..tho most are clearly not..Why do same folks love to suggest when anyone blames a COP for wrong doing as blame somehow blaming ALL Cops.. It's ALL silliness.. Bad Cop is just that..Bad Black is just that..Bad ISIL is Just that..WHY Blame the whole??? Silly...fear tactics is actually a transparent tactic!! It's been going on far too long!!

Sure..continue with your obvious focus on blaming those who had absolutely no original action that caused impulsion of the Middle East...Actions actually have consequences..Cleanup of such is impossible to clean up such a disaster/ never mind dealing with economical meltdown 2008 Market DROP!! ..Just maybe trying to clean up the disasters caused by disruptions ..enabled all those extremists to get unleashed back in the early2002..which escalated..

IF you don't actually understand the timeline..please look it up..Blaming the Janitor trying to cleanup a MESS of problems created that caused the MESS..reeks of denial!!
