ISIS Picks the Wrong Fight

ISIS may well come to regret the day it chose to mess with Turkey.

A suicide bomber, believed to be an ISIS member, has killed at least 31 people in the southern Turkish town of Suruc near the Syrian border. The victims — including three beautiful young women who took a selfie together moments before they were killed — were members of socialist youth groups who had congregated to work on rebuilding the town of Kobani in northern Syrian, which had been taken by Kurdish fighters from ISIS in January after a bloody months-long fight.

    This is awesome!
    They have to go through Turkey to get to the Vatican.

    I thought I heard somewhere that youth group was mostly Kurdish, which means Erdogan might have okayed the bombing.

  • A plague on both their houses – Turkey and Isis both, different faces of the same monster.

    Killing Kurds and their supporters is in Turkey’s interest.

    I don’t think Erdogan minds if the target of ISIS is the Kurds and socialists.

    A few days ago ISIS fired on an Egyptian naval ship, and now they rattle Turkey’s cage.
    They’ve got balls, I’ll give them that. They had better enjoy ’em while they still have ’em.
