the thing is PKK was originally, militants (or terrorists whichever fits you) trained in Syria and Iraq and continually sent to East, Southeast
regions of Turkey for to attack and terroize those regions. it is believed that they were funded by CIA, note that Saddam was also planted by CIA to
overthrow the then current Iraqi goverment.
I believe at least %30 of turkeys population is already Kurds and they are living all over the country not just southeast of Turkey. and the
percentage of Kurds living in the country who support PKK is like % 0.1 of total kurd population.
however because of this conflict the military has lots of excuse to spend %40 of gross national income to military spendings. so we could say that
these conflicts are in some way useful for the military ( or should I say weapon merchants) from another point of view. and weapons are mostly
supplied by Israel and USA and the rest is produced in turkey.
and about the kurds caliming to take their "motherland" back is somewhat senseless, because turkey is not a country just formed by turks, the
ottoman empire mostly conquered these lands and they didnt slaugter the locals instead they gave the locals every rights and freedom so they could
live in harmony, the population of tukey is formed by lots of nationalities including greeks africans russians and europeans etc. etc. so if each of
them tries to pick a territory for themselves there would be no country but lots of states, juts like it was when nomads first setlled. think of
Itallians claiming a territory in New York because there are lots of Itallians there or Jews. this mentality is wrong. and the need to reclaim
"motherland" is just a screenplay, but things and goals are different behind the curtains.
and note that in turkey the miltary service is mandatory, which means the people who defend againts PKK attacks are 18-22 year old random people from
all over the country, it could be me or anybody, one day a teenager working in a bookstore, the next day he is at mountains with a G3 listening the
whistles of bullets that pass overhead. its not like in US where people are coldbloodedly commenting on war and killing from the comfort of their
and about the bombings it could be anything really the minibuses are really mini 5 meters long and 2.5 meters wide aproximately and ifa bomb is going
off in one and only 4 passengers receive deadly wounds than this measn the bomb was small, and it could be someone who doesnt like the driver and
decided to put together a bomb, it could be taxi companies to gain more customers by making people think that the minibusses are not safe etc. it
could be touristic companies which saw that the southern turkey resorts started to gather less tourists while the southwest resorts started to attract
more tourists than them.some people calling the authorities and accept the resposibility of the attack doesnt mean really much. if they did want to
sabotage the tourism then there are lots of more efficient targets than a minibus.
