Russian Ambassador murdered in Turkey

Postby seektravelinfo » Mon Dec 19, 2016 5:55 pm

Russian Ambassador to Turkey assassinated in Ankara. Reports are that the shooter yelled Allah Akbar, shot the man, stood over his body with the one-fingered monotheistic jihadist salute (because Syria). The shooter is a young Turkish police officer, which presumably gave him close access to his target.

What an uncomfortable phone call between Erdogan and Putin this must be.

Also make me think about:

I've been reading that Trump plans to scuttle Secret Service protection, instead using his own private security force. This suggests to me that Trump is worried about his safety around government security police forces, that he would possibly be "offed" by the Secret Service, so he just hires his own private army. Is there any kind of precedent for this in America?
No? I didn't think so.

Look the size of the guys finger in the picture after he shot him. LOL, the Ambassador was lucky he only caught a bullet or two.

On your post above, maybe Yorick left a tin foil hat you can use to contemplate this?

Well, he does plan to keep his private security detail, instead of using Secret Service. Can he do that, hire into place his own private police force? Who vets them? How will that work?

Reports that Erdogan is blaming Gulen for this (his nemesis who resides in Pennsylvania). How soon once Trump takes office will it be before Erdogan pressures him to extradite Gulen to Turkey? How will Trump respond?

Ha. Trump has business dealings in Turkey. Trump Toweres Istanbul. As soon as Trump was elected Erdogan threw Trump's Turkish business partners in jail as leverage to get Gulen back.

Lived in Turkey for nearly two years, along the Black Sea coast, and still have lots of good friends there, many of them military helo pilots and I'm not sure what happened to them or which side of the coup they were on. The Turks I know were very proud of their Ataturk secularism, their moderate Muslim leanings, and Erdogan has them very nervous. I'm personae non-grata and can't even pass through Istanbul anymore.....all over dodgy work VISAs...damn. Makes certain routes to Africa a PIA....

Ha. Jokes on you. Glenn Beck has gone to the other side.

I see what's going on now. Conservatives & altRighters are loudly scorning and dismissing the blowback against Trump and the death of American Democracy, not yet realizing that most Americans would back up, for example, what Meryl Streep said, and y'all not yet realizing that Trump's honeymoon will stop the moment he is sworn in, and the for-real shit unfolds and y'all's humiliation will be vast. Y'all are whistling past the graveyard while you're selling wolf tickets.

Now, when I say y'all I'm speaking in a rhetorical sense, not to single anyone out here on the "flag", someone like "Q" maybe, and this one and that one.

As for Trump's business dealings in Istanbul & the resultant fall-out to those poor Friend Of Gulen (FOG) bastards, but watch, it's going to get bizarro, seeing how Erdogan & Putin are so chummy right now and they will have Trump for lunch. And Trump is gonna like it. Until he doesn't.
