Just wanted to let people know that there was a bombing attack in a major tourist area in Istanbul, Turkey. 10 people were killed with 15 wounded. Probably won’t hear about it ‘cause no Americans died. Some lives are just more important than others.
BTW: When this was written it was 5:00 a.m. SO I did not know what exactly went on and didn’t even know it would gain as much media exposure. I apologize if I offended anyone. When I wrote this I had the intention of reminding people of how bad the media (especially American) is when it comes to representing global news. Yes it’s on the news. Okay. But there have been many other attacks occurring in Turkey the past couple months… October alone had about 100 deaths in Turkey. Most of y'all criticizing me didn’t even know that I’ll bet. This isn’t an isolated event… Yet the media treats it as some ploy against westerners. It’s a strategic attack against Turkey. ‘Cause if you haven’t noticed Turkey is in the middle of combatting conflicts between Syria, Russia, ISIS, and Kurdish rebel groups. I’m not talking about whether I’m against westerners or support this government or that. I’m against media portrayal of global issues.
suspected Islamic State group suicide bombers targeted the
international terminal of Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport Tuesday, killing at
least 36 people and wounding many others, Turkish officials said.
Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said 36 were dead as well as the three
suicide bombers. Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said 147 were wounded.
Another senior government official told The Associated Press the death
toll could climb much higher.
senior official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with
government protocol, at first said close to 50 people had already died,
but later said that the figure was expected to rise to close to 50.
said three suicide bombers were responsible for the attack and all
initial indications suggest the Islamic State group was behind it.
findings of our security forces point at the Daesh organization as the
perpetrators of this terror attack,” Yildirim told reporters at the
airport, using the Arabic name for IS. “Even though the indications
suggest Daesh, our investigations are continuing.” (AP)
