Adding to growing international condemnations of the Turkish military crackdown against ethnic Kurdish areas in their southeast, a new video has been released showing Turkish troops firing on a Kurdish funeral procession and killing multiple civilians, including several waving white flags.
Turkish officials, as usual, referred to all the slain as “PKK terrorists,” saying they killed 21 “terrorists” in Cizre, and four others elsewhere in southeast Turkey. They further claimed 524 “terrorists” were slain in the operation since early December.
Back then, Turkey declared an all-day, non-stop curfew in Cizre and some other Kurdish towns, and has been shooting pretty much anybody caught on the streets at any time. The huge civilian death toll has added to unrest, particularly among Kurds,, and led to calls for further crackdowns on both the Kurds and Turkish academics who have criticized the attacks.
While the video evidence of shooting obvious civilians is making the rounds in the international media, so far it does not appear to be reported in the Turkish media. Since the Erdogan government has shut down media outlets as “terrorists” for publishing information unfavorable to the ongoing military operation, this is unsurprising.

The main reason why we should get out of the Middle-East, all that oil wealth and everyone so greed-crazy for the glory power of wealth.
“We” are the worst of the lot
TWO STATES OF EQUALITY
We would all have equality if we all suffered poverty, a state that takes place just before non-existence, a state that will take place if the hoarding of wealth continues to bring on global warming.
Otherwise, there is only one other way to have equality, if no one owned wealth. For wealth is the property we own that is above what is needed to have a healthy life, wealth is a luxury and wealth is the root cause of all greed. For the more wealth you own, the more you feel deserving of wealth, the more your willing to fight to get wealth and the more you must be willing to kill to protect wealth. And worst of all, the stronger is your desire to go to war for wealth and to invade weaker countries and plunder their natural resources and wealth.
For since 1776, the upper-half of society has owned all the wealth and because of this, has been so selfish as to enslave the laboring-class lower-half by poverty.
So, the perfect solution is to outlaw wealth. A most doable goal as the laboring-class has never known the luxury of owning wealth.
When Trump is president we will take their oil if we have to go over there for any reason what so ever
