I only put the date for the purpose of the search engine, as key words show many blasts have hit Ankara since they began their proxy war on Syria. A military target was hit, so this was likely the action of Kurdish rebels, possibly even on behalf of or the assistance with the Russians. Its hard to forgive a shot down jet after all.

At least 28 people have been killed and 61 injured in a car explosion in Ankara, Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister said. The blast happened in close proximity to the Turkish parliament building, and reportedly targeted military personnel.

Omer Celik, a spokesperson for Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), said on his Twitter account that the explosion was the result of a “cowardly terrorist attack.”

So the question for me becomes is this the same ISIS asshats they've been buying oil from? If so I'm happy that they are reaping the rewards of their corruption. They're funding the people we're 'allegedly' fighting in Syria. Maybe they learn that ISIS has no loyalty except to their death cult.

Congrats to over a decade of US fueled war in the ME that made this all possible.

but can anyone actually show me bodies/blood etc?

As soon as I heard the report something in my mind said '' empty bus ''

Well liveleak may have that later. Or (not the actual url, but umm probably best I don't publicly disclose that portal) . They tend to have the footage that does not get disseminated publicly. I doubt this was ISIS, as they prefer to attack soft targets for the scaries and terror effect. I think this was a revenge attack by the Kurds
, assuming that there was anyone in the bus like you said.

Now that you mention, it does seem a bit convenient that this detonation was caught from many angles with perfect views.

precisely when Saudi and turkey are just looking for an excuse to get involved..

A bus full of military men would be easy to setup (on the fake side) - no one is going to demand the military release info and its easy and cheap to find a dozen mature people to cry and scream on camera as if theyd just lost their precious son

That second video (the one by News Live) is the fakest video I have ever seen on the internet.

I'm really curious to find out who is responsible given Turkey is a mostly Muslim nation.

Yeah, It would absolutely be "just desserts" if it was the dog biting the hand that feeds it.

How ever, if it was ISIS and Turkey truly is buying it's oil. Seems awfully odd to lost that much revenue this late in the conflict by blowing up your customers.

I seriously feel this is a grab to put Turkish boots driving the spear in Syria.

I mean come on, if they are buying their oil an ISIS attacked them wow, they really are a bunch of sand monkeys high on meth beating each other off...

I don't think ISIS or Turkey is that stupid though. Not that I think other is amazing, but It smells more of a Turkish false flag if any conspiracy is to be had..

Angry Turks get revenge... Expect a land invasion in the coming weeks, months.

Good point, it also seems to be the general consensus from the comments on it as well. Too late for me to edit it out at this point though. So who faked it, the source, or the News Live people?? Maybe they are a tabloid outlet???

The story is already being written:

Syrian man behind Turkey bombing: reports

Turkish media reports say a Syrian national was behind the attack in Ankara that killed at least 28 people and wounded dozens of others.

Yeni Safak, a newspaper close to the government, reports the man who detonated the car bomb on Wednesday, which targeted buses carrying military personnel, was identified from his fingerprints.

It said he had been registered as a refugee in Turkey.

The pro-government newspaper Sabah said the man was linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK.

We could play this against ISIS....or the Kurds....
Or both....for invasion...which is Turkeys fondest hope....

Turkey has blamed the 'YPG/PKK' for the terrorist attack. It's just too convenient, considering the current circumstances involving the Kurds. The YPG, in particular, is only considered a terrorist organisation by Turkey, and it has never carried out similar attacks in the past. The PKK is considered a terrorist organisation by many countries.

I can't imagine a terrorist attack being sanctioned by the YPG, especially in the situation they are currently facing in Syria. It would just give Turkey a reason to fight them. That said, it wouldn't be surprising if it was the PKK. It doesn't matter either way. Turkey thinks they're the same.

Videos removed by user eh?? Well here is the first one again since it was taken down,

I don't see why this would not be a legitimate attack by the Kurd's. They do not like the Turkish military, are constantly under attack by their armed forces. It seems like a logical retaliation to me. Pussy ISIS seems to prefers attacking civilians and soft targets.
