The PKK terrorists who carried out the Ankara attacks were lauded in a city controlled by the Democratic Union Party (PYD) with their photos displayed on a building. The images point to the close alliance between the PKK and PYD that some circles do not acknowledge. A photograph of the poster hanging on a building in al-Malikiyah shows the picture of suicide bombers Abdülbaki Sömer and Seher Çağla Demir beside a picture of imprisoned PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan. Sömer carried out a terrorist attack in Ankara on Feb. 17 that claimed 29 lives. The blast, which targeted military buses, also left scores wounded. Demir was responsible for the suicide car bombing in Ankara that killed 37 people in March. She joined the PKK in 2013 and was trained by the PYD's armed People's Protection Units (YPG) in Syria.

This is a sick approach by USA; supporting a terrorist organisation to defeat anohter, while the same terrorist organisation continues killing people in another country, Turkey.

It's also blowback. Turkey has been attacking the Kurds in Iraq and Syria since the beginning. Turkey has been funding and arming ISIS in Syria and has been working against Iraq and the USA in the retaking of Mosul. Turkey supplied the poison gas precursors that are being used by ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Erdogan is a backstabbing, worthless demagogue, and Turkey is in NATO. What does that say about NATO?

- ''He urged the international community to step up both military and relief efforts to help Syrian Kurds. “We have no hospitals here anymore, and few medical supplies. We are running low on everything: food, water, milk for children.” Most of the supplies available were now coming via Turkey, he explained, often through Kurdish organisations. Injured people are being treated in Turkish hospitals.''

- She(Condoleezza Rice) also said the United States had to "stand for" Turkey's democratic processes.

"The government that was elected by the people [in Turkey] has actually been a government dedicated to pulling Turkey West toward Europe," Rice told the Senate Appropriations Committee...

"Even though it is led by the AKP (Justice and Development Party), which has Islamic roots; it has been trying to integrate into Europe," she said. "It's been changing its laws to try to become consistent with European Union requirements for laws on individual and religious freedom and other issues of that kind. And so I think it's very important that we support their democratic processes."

Turkey was in NATO long before Erdogan came to power, so it actually doesn't say much
