Turkey attacks on Kurds escalate

Fears of civil war as mobs attack Kurdish targets in Turkey

Violent mobs have attacked Kurdish and other targets in towns across Turkey as the fighting between the government and PKK guerrillas worsens, prompting fears of renewed civil war.

Headquarter offices of the main pro-Kurdish party, the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), which has 80 seats in parliament, were set on fire in the capital Ankara, the southern city of Alanya and more than 100 towns across the country.

    Again here Canada, US, Nato are on the wrong side. They are supporting Turkish government and consider them a Nato ally but they see the Kurds who are the real victims as terrorists. What is wrong with the West????????? Everywhere, the West and America and are for example backing various barbaric islamic jihadists that are fighting Assad in Syria but now they are all up in arms because Russia sent some military advisers to Assad. WHAT THE FUCK IS REALLY WRONG WITH THE WEST??????????????????????????

    A good way for Canada to “stick it” to Islamist Turkey is for the government to recognize an independent Kurdistan.
