Apparently, we still have to be on the lookout for radical Marxists hellbent on preventing American imperialism:
Tension is high in Turkey after a suicide bombing at the U.S. Embassy in Ankara as officials identified the attacker as a member of a radical leftist group.The blast killed a Turkish security guard, authorities say. The bomber died.
Istanbul police identified the bomber as Ecevit Shanli, a member of DHKP-C, a Marxist Leninist terror group.
The Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front, is a well funded, well trained radical Marxist terror organization in Turkey that has successfully targeted and killed Americans and Westerners for two decades now, including soldiers and personnel.
They have been quieter in recent years, as security operations within Turkey have stymied many planned attacks, but today’s strike is most likely in reaction to the four hundred American soldiers that are currently deployed in Turkey right now with the Patriot missiles (you know, the ones, we sent to Turkey to protect them from Assad…)
This being the second attack on an American Embassy in just five months, we should remember the world is full of terrorists and cowards determined to strike the United States, and with that in mind – incoming Secretary of State Kerry should make reviewing and revamping our embassies security a top priority.
