Attack on U.S. consulate in Turkey called terrorism


www.cnn.com

Six people, including three police officers, have been killed in a shootout near the U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, the city's governor says. "It is an obvious act of terrorism," Ross Wilson, the U.S. Ambassador to Turkey, said. A consulate official said no American citizens or employees were hurt.

This is still developing.

So, is this really terrorism, or just paranoid people jumping quickly and using that term?

There go the gas prices.... again.

So IF it happens outside a colsulate it's INSTANTLY called a terrorist act?
Until the full facts come out We'll have to speculate.
As for being the US embassy , Maybe is was a shootout between bank robbers. There are even gangs in Turkey you know and warring factions over there.
Because it was outside / or near (depending on the story you read) the US embassy it's called terrorism.
Might as well say terrorism because that way the US can say it's been attacked and then go to war against Turkey for their delicious Turkish Delight confectionary. Yum Yum.

Yavuz Erkut Yuksel, a bystander, told CNN-Turk television the attackers emerged from a vehicle and surprised the guard.

"One of them approached a policeman while hiding his gun and shot him in the head," Yuksel said.

Footage from a security camera at the site showed four armed and bearded men emerging from a car and killing a traffic policeman, then running toward a guard post some 50 yards away as other policemen fired back, the Dogan news agency reported.


Lets just call it a terrorist attack. But then policemen were targeted so lets call them freedom fighters.
