Well, Happy New Year! Me thinks we'll see some retaliation in the days to come. I do know the NY and other major cities are on High Alert.


ISTANBUL—Turkish authorities said Wednesday they have arrested two suspected Islamic State extremists they said were planning to carry out an attack during New Year’s Eve celebrations in the nation’s capital.

Officials also said counterterrorism police found a vest and backpack filled with explosives and ball bearings when the two men were taken into custody in a low-income neighborhood in the capital, Ankara.

Do you think ISIS would attack NY or another large American city in retaliation for two nobodies being arrested in Turkey?

The question I have is: Are these the same Turkish authorities collaborating with ISIS to date?, or are these different "authorities", or are we looking at 2 sides of the same coin and to save face in the growing evidence that Turkey is aiding ISIS and buying their cheap oil and on-selling it to the world, the "authorities decide to roll out patsies to deceive folks and throw them off the scent?

*FX: Radio static*

"ROFLCOPTER 1, you are clear for landing on pad 2, clear for landing on pad 2, over."

That was legendary.

Now, as for ISIS suspects, I have to ask, how many ISIS members have been actually captured and detained since their organisation came into being? Do we even have numbers for that, and furthermore, what intelligence has been gleaned from them?

And more precisely, is this the first time an ISIS suspect has been captured in a nation that they were looking to commit a terrorist atrocity in, as opposed to a nation that they were making a full scale military assault on?

The Kurds actively capture ISIS members as do the other factions within Syria/Iraq as well as arrests throughout Europe. I am more concerned as sublime put it that these arrests that Turkey is conducting is merely a token gesture as the links to officials in Turkey helping ISIS are becoming more apparent. It may simply be a case of people in Turkey not wanting these scum operating within their borders or the more sinister theory of some turkish officials feeling the noose tightening.

Kurdish terrorists have been suicide bombing Turkish people for some 3 decades and Turks have every right to pursue these terrorists too .

An inconvenient truth but nevertheless it should be noted that people who rubbish Turks and praise the Kurdish Terrorists are simply being ignorant to the bone .

Kurdish & Arab terrorists makes no difference ; its just that the DAESH is a recent development on the terrorism scene while the Kurdish Terrorists are the GrandDaddy Terrorists in the area .

Who's praising them? All I said is that they are actively capturing ISIS members. I am pretty sure that the Kurds are exacting some pretty inhumane and barbaric revenge on ISIS members. You are letting you nationalistic pride get in the way of your reading comprehension again.

Two terrorist groups are on the scene ; while I am against both of them , some people seem to favour the Kurdish terrorists .
If you are not praising the Kurdish terrorists , you got nothing to worry about .

Besides , my post wasn't adressed to any specific user but just to those who praise Kurdish terrorists.

My concern as sos and sublime is the relationship between Isis and Kurds. Erdogan has def ensured that ISIS views Turkey as the/an enemy, and ISis will attack Turkey again. The only question is when, and how severely.

And you believe that ISIS may retaliate by attacking a US city, all because a couple turds were arrested in Turkey?

With all the mixed news coming from Turkey this days, from Turkey hospitals treating ISIS leaders, Turkey allowing ISIS camps for recruiting and donations, and more, I just can not take this news very seriously.

Then is the oil allegations and that Turkey calls ISIS members Syrian rebels, to keep the attention way from the truth.

That is an assumption because I cannot read the entire article. A subscription or WSJ account is required. But if these two were higher-up on the chain of command, their names would have been released and this would be a bigger deal than is being reported.

So you admit it's an assumption, and then you make another assumption that their names would have been released and it would bigger than reported?

seems like unpractical logic
