18 Dead, 45 Injured After Massive “Terrorist” Bombing In Turkish Capital

Update: Sure enough, AKP says this is being treated as “an act of terror” and we also have news that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has set up an emergency security meeting in Ankara, Turkey.

With Turkey on the brink of going to war with Russia and, implicitly, Iran, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is looking for an excuse to invade Syria.

The rebels Turkey and Saudi Arabia back are staging what amounts to a last stand at Aleppo and the Kurdish YPG is moving to cut the Azaz corridor, which would effectively mean that Turkey has no way of resupplying the insurgency.

For the past five days, Ankara has been shelling the YPG in a futile attempt to stop their advance.

The only thing that can save the rebellion against Bashar al-Assad is an outright ground operation by the rebels’ Sunni benefactors, including Turkey.

All Erdogan needs is a pretext and he may have just gotten one as reports indicate there’s been a huge explosion in Ankara near parliament and at least 5 people are dead.
