With plenty of chaos already ongoing in Turkey, and seemingly everyone already fighting everyone, the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C), a banned Marxist organization, has jumped in to complicate things further, attacking the US Consulate in Istanbul.
Two women from the DHKP-C opened fire on the consulate earlier today, sparking a round of gunbattles with police and security at the site. One of them was captured, and identified as 51-year-old Hatice Asik. The other woman is still at large.
The DHKP-C has a history of carrying out such attacks. In February of 2013 they carried out a suicide bombing at the US Embassy in Ankara, and earlier this year they blew up an Istanbul police station. The group also assassinated two US soldiers during the 1991 Iraq War.
As well as being a Marxist-Leninist group, the DHKP-C is said to recruit primarily from Turkey’s Alevi minority. The group’s attacks have mostly been around Turkish and NATO security services, and it is listed as a terrorist organization in Turkey, the US, and the European Union.

Yeah sure, make Turkey part of Europe, what a great place.
Is not about Marxism or communists or socialist or a functioning democracy, is about the facts that US history showing from Korea war to Vietnam, to Iran and cop de Etta's all over the world is about US imperialism ideology implementation where the force has been the language, in economics the language always been about deception, frauds and stealing. Lately, the very same policies practiced by the very same democrats or republicans, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and fifty other nations that are bombed for no reasons at all, the Israel aggression toward Palestinians, the Turkish Erdogan regime cooperating with EU and USG creating ISIS. The list of betrayal of mankind by capitalism is so long that explaining it would take the entire web sit of anti war.com. The main reasons that USG is at war always been about u.s creating new market for U.S by stealing the people's natural resources, more than 40% of us manufacturing profits are from a broad, if they go the U.S economy will collapse in matters of months, as if Turkish, Israeli, EU oil companies mafioso wouldn't buy stolen Syrian, Iraqi oil by ISIS they will collapse in weeks.
Everybody hates US.
