Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country was suffering “one of the biggest waves of terrorism in its history”.

He vowed to crush the Islamic State (IS) and Kurdish rebels believed to be behind a string of attacks.

“We will hit these terrorist organisations as hard as possible,” Erdogan said in a speech in Istanbul.

When the Americans started arming terrorists they got 9/11. When Turkey does it they get this. It’s almost like arming terrorists is a bad idea or some thing.

Erdogan is the biggest wave of terror to hit Turkey. If the Turkish people want to fight terrorism, they can start by hanging Erdogan from the nearest light post.

Erdogan is playing with the ‘terrorism’ theme in order to terrorise the Kurds within Turkey as we all know. Erdogan funds and arms DAESH and has Arabic speaking death squads ( DAESH mercenaries ?) dressed in Turkish police uniforms who murder and assault Kurdish civilians within Turkey.

The only ‘wave’ that Turkey is suffering is the wave of Mafia government in Turkey today.
