Anti-Kurdish unrest hits Turkey

Unrest spread across the town of Dortyol in the southeastern province of Hatay after four police officers were shot dead on Monday in an attack blamed on the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Angry protesters set fire to Kurdish businesses in the town, attacked the local offices of a pro-Kurdish political party and clashed with security forces deployed to maintain order in the area.

What do I take of this news? This news is evidence of the failures of nationalism.

Why would someone attack innocent people? If these people were behind the police killings or helped with the murder then there is some justification, other wise they are merely emotional idiots.

Now let's connect it to politics:

Turkish suspicions are in great part fueled by the history of Israel assisting Kurds in their wars in Iraq during the 1960s and 1970s, as well as recent reports that Israeli firms are involved in sales of military equipment and training assistance aimed at establishing an autonomous Kurdish administration in northern Iraq.

I don't believe in nationalism, nor borderism.

Also I don't support causing unrest for political gains.

Your position that borders and nationalism is obsolete is the same endorsed by international socialism, one worlders and the globalists. These are the same people who shipped all of our jobs overseas to countries with no labor laws and no civil rights laws. They work tirelessly to carefully inculcate globalism through all the media, education and other propaganda outlets at their disposal.

Borders, languages and culture are the key to any nation surviving. Who then shall lead your new world order? The self appointed leaders of your movement are some of the most reprehensible monsters the world has ever seen. They include such moral geniuses as the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and other lawless banksters.

Achieving your goals requires the denial of the idea that some nations are special, have a special purpose, or a special role in the world. Say Israel being a haven for the jews or the US being a haven for the world's oppressed. It denies the rights of nations to protect their own language and culture and very identity. This is so it can be replaced with what? International socialism? Communism? Libertinism? Shall all be conformed to your values or lack thereof?

That makes you an enemy of anyone who loves the US constitution or who loves freedom and a traitor to your own country. Any further questions?

Sorry I don't believe in Globalist ideology, or the NWO ideology.

I believe everything should be done based on agreements, all human affairs should be controled based on agreements, hence I make an agreement with you, that the punishment for robbery should be death.

We both have to agree with that.

The government's job would be to keep these agreements in line, etc.

The government's job is to enforce these agreements.

The government shouldn't have any other powers. They should just be the governing body, to govern the affairs of people, based on the choices people made.

PKK is a terrorist organisation and it has killed 30000 civilians in last 3 decades .

Most of the dead were also Kurdish too .

PKK is an organisation where Marxists - Leninists ideals are followed by a bunch of thugs .

Here at ATS , denying ignorance is a motto , hence I would urge those who support the terrorists to re-evaluate your positions .

For Kurds to grow and prosper in the Middle East , they have to make enemies with at least 3 neighbouring states , namely , Iran , Iraq , Syria .

There is your Arab and Persian enemies for the Kurds .

Does anyone really think that the Kurds needs / wants the Turks as an enemy too ?

Heck , Kurdistan prime minister was in Turkey last month and the business between the Kurds in Iraq and Turkey proper are at all times high .

It is obviously important to differentiate PKK from legit Kurdish organisations .

Great Game , oh the good old Great Game , eh ?
