The democratically elected Turkish Government is doing a job that various European nations have already finished.
TO DISSOLVE THE SECRET MILITARY (CIA) "gladio" NETWORKS.
It is top military secret service PSYOP agents that do INSIDE JOBS.
They kill masses of innocent civilians and blame it on leftists or separatists.
The STRATEGY OF TENSION keeps people in fear and (theoretically) in favour of right-wing "law and order".
Of course LAW AND ORDER IT AIN'T! It is "DEEP STATE" rule of the few over the many.
Undemocratic, and through perception management it achieves its goals.
TO PERSERVE THE STATuS QUO.
Finally SOME newspapers dare to report between the lines about the taboo of STATE TERROR:
State Terror? CIA murders?
Bologna 1980, Herrhausen, Rohwedder, 9/11, 7/7, Madrid, Bali, Anthrax, Aldo Moro...
the list is endless!

In the wake of deadly attacks Turkey waits anxiously for Court.s decision on the AKP
The Constitutional Court begins today to examine request to dissolve ruling party, accused of planning to introduce Sharia. There is concern for the fact that the deliberations are taking place at the same time as top spots in armed forces must be replaced.
Ankara (AsiaNews) . Tensions are running high in Turkey today after yesterday.s terror attacks as the whole country waits for the Constitutional Court to rule whether the Justice and Development Party (AKP) is to be dissolved and 71 of its leaders banned from politics, including President Abdullah Gül and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdo.an.
The request was made by Turkey.s top prosecutor, Abdurrahman Yalç.nkaya, who argued that the AKP wants to impose the Sharia, which is a clear and present danger.
The AKP and its top leaders have rejected the allegations that they seek to undermine the secular nature of the state.
The Court, which has already overturned a law that lifted a ban on wearing the Islamic veil in university, is expected to rule next month.
No one can say what the outcome will be; however, many have highlighted the fact that dissolution requires seven judges out of 11.
The court rapporteur Osman Can advocated in a non-binding report that the court should reject the closure request.
Complicating matters is the fact that terror attacks and the start of legal procedures before the Constitutional Court are taking place at a special time.
Some suggest that the charges against the AKP are but the latest action by the .deep state., a term used to describe the bureaucracy and the army which claim to be heirs and guarantors of Kemalist secularism against the ruling moderate Islamist party.
On the other hand, the AKP has responded with a probe into the Ergenekon network, an organisation similar to Gladio, the clandestine NATO .stay-behind. unit, and the arrest of retired gendarmerie chief, General .ener Eruygur and retired former head of the 1st Army, General Hur.it Tolon, who are accused of preparing since 2004 a coup d.État.
The start of August, when the Court should issue its ruling, is also when the leaders of the armed forces will be appointed, in particular, the new joint chief of staff.
General .lker Ba.bu., commander of the Turkish Army, is expected to replace the current Chief of the General Staff, General Ya.ar Büyükan.t.
But what will happen if Erdo.an is prevented from doing so and his party dissolved?
Turkey will not be subverted
No one is claiming responsibility for the bombs in Istanbul, but the finger of suspicion points at a shady ultra-nationalist group

All of Turkey was appalled by a villainous terror attack in Istanbul on Sunday night that came amid discussion over the findings of dark relations revealed by the indictment on the Ergenekon terror organisation, and on the eve of the beginning of deliberation by the constitutional court on an indictment seeking to close the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK party). Terror showed its bloody face this time on an ordinary Istanbul street, without discriminating between the old and the young, babies and children, men and women. Unfortunately, Turkey lost 17 of its citizens in this heinous terror attack, and 150 more were wounded. Over 15 of them are still in critical condition.
It is generally thought that terror attacks convey a bloody message in addition to their aim of terrorising people and spreading horror and fear among society. The most-circulated questions since the inhumane attacks on Sunday night have been, "Who perpetrated this terror attack?", "What was its aim?" and, "Why now?"
It is, of course, impossible to find immediately the answers to all these vital questions, which are on all of our minds. However, I am hopeful that the evidence and information found in the course of the police investigation will show us which terror organisation is behind this barbaric act. The fact that the Turkish police have been successful in solving terrorist assaults in the past and revealing the dark connections behind these attacks gives us hope that they will be successful in unravelling the case this time, too.
However, even if the terror organisation or organisations behind the attack were revealed, in countries like Turkey . which is insufficiently transparent and unsuccessful in deciphering the complex ties between illegal figures and organisations with official structures . it would not be enough to enable us to learn what the real aim and message of the terrorist acts are. In these cases, a clever analysis of the style of attacks, their timing and their messages could be much more functional.
If we start by analysing the timing of this latest terror attack, we can easily say that has occurred at a juncture where three crucial processes overlap or coincide:
1) The trial in the case on the Ergenekon terror organisation, which aimed to topple the popularly elected ruling AK party, has been legally under way since last Friday.
2) The constitutional court began a meeting to decide on the AK party closure case on Monday morning.
3) Military operations against the separatist terror organisation the Kurdistan Workers' party (PKK) have been ongoing both in Turkey and abroad (in the form of air strikes in northern Iraq). So the PKK feels squeezed into a corner.
Even if all the factors I have listed above seem very different from one another, the information, testimonies, documents and other evidence in the 2,455-page indictment on the Ergenekon terror organisation show that there are close links between Ergenekon and the closure case at the top court; and between Ergenekon and the PKK. The evidence in the indictment confirms that Ergenekon, as a Gladio-like formation with dark ties to deep state structures, played a major role in the formation of the pro-Kurdish PKK, the religious fundamentalist Hizbullah, Marxist-Leninist terror organisation the Revolutionary People's Liberation party/Front (DHKP-C) and the fundamentalist Islamic Great East Raiders Front (IBDA-C) . and it still has the power over them to direct and manipulate.
The first findings have indicated that the explosive material used in making the bombs used in the massacring attacks on Sunday night is RDX. And RDX has been known as the "bomb of secret services". This explosive was also used in past assassinations of Turkish intellectuals, like Bahriye Üçok, Ahmet Taner K.slal., Ugur Mumcu; in terror attacks, like that on the Anafartalar shopping centre in Ulus, Ankara in 2007 and that against the Final Course in Diyarbak.r on June 3 2008. Today, the combination of a terrorist attack and a secret service association can only point us to Ergenekon.
The evidences listed in the Ergenekon indictment, which has been covered enormously in Turkish media in recent days, oblige us to think that the last terrorist attack is linked with Ergenekon irregardless of whether it was perpetrated by the PKK, Hizbullah, the DHKP-C or the IBDA-C. Because I think the attacks aim at deterrence and intimidation of those officials who want to chase the trail of Ergenekon wherever it leads, as well as an easing of the increasing pressure on military operations against the PKK. Moreover, these twin attacks aimed to create pressure on the members of the top court, which is now in the process of closing the ruling party as a way of realising the Ergenekon mission to topple the ruling party through so-called legal means.
Beside of all the above-mentioned goals, these attacks have aimed to simply change and manipulate Turkey's agenda. It has at least been very successful in diverting the attention of Turkish public opinion and the Turkish media from Ergenekon and the closure case to the terrorism itself. The attacks function very efficiently as a way to black other issues out. Hence, instead of discussing Ergenekon and the closure case, Turkish people are now discussing these wretched terror attacks. In this respect, the twin bombs can be described as "agenda-targeting bombs".
Hopefully, these terrorist acts have no chance at reversing the Turkish people's eagerness to make Turkey a much more transparent and much more democratic country. Because the overwhelming majority of the Turkish people want a more transparent, more democratic regime, the attacks, fortunately, do not bear the potential to deter the Turkish people from these demands. Turkey will continue decisively on the path to more democracy, even if the AK party is closed and even if the armed and civilian bureaucratic elite try to oblige Turks to opt for a new direction for Turkey. Turkey will succeed in cleansing its intestines of the poisonous factors that cause nausea from time to time.
