    Hurriyet is reporting of an assasination attempt on Russian ambrassador in Ankara whose condition is unknown.



    update. CNNTurk reports that ambrassador Karlov is in critical condition.

    update 2. shooter was part of his assigned security detail and reportedly shouted islamist slogans and about Aleppo.

    update. Turkish media is reporting that Ambrassador Karlov has died.

    Needless to say that Moscow takes attacks on its diplomats rather poorly.

    I wonder what the measured response to that will be? Guess we need more information but I hope NATO doesn't blindly support turkey

    Cui bono?


    I doubt the Turkish state had anything to do with this. After all, Erdogan and Putin have been warming up.

    The following parties would have a clear interest in sowing discord, however:

    • Kurds
    • Islamic rebels in Syria
    • ISIS
    • Western intelligence services including the US

    Russia has been carrying out assassinations in Turkey for years.
    It will be interesting to see who is behind this. Russian and Turkish relations don't need anymore straining.

    Perhaps demonocrats and gayorgy sauronos believe that they rather destroy the world than give up their power.

    Yeah they have just cut some major gas deals etc and the whole non agression deal and obvious unspoken al bab for aleppo trade off all but complete.

    This is prob more likely due to half assed russian security and russians now being ' the enemy' for the whole muzzie world
    If not id say Isis given they have shown worldwide reach and as ex iraqi goverment they can play the dirty intel game at a high level.

    I heard an interview with an expert on the German version of NPR yesterday who said ISIS operates like a more aggressive version of the Gestapo or Stasi in Middle Eastern states - and highly professionalized at that.
