The Defense Department on Tuesday ordered the evacuation of hundreds of military and civilian dependents from Turkey, including Incirlik Air Base, due to increased concerns about security.
The order applies to nearly 700 spouses and children at Incirlik as well as small populations in the areas of Izmir and Mugla, defense officials said.
The order is the latest sign of heightened concern about security for Americans in Turkey, particularly the area along the Syrian border where Incirlik is located.
“We understand this is disruptive to our military families, but we must keep them safe and ensure the combat effectiveness of our forces to support our strong ally Turkey in the fight against terrorism,” Air Force Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, commander of U.S. European Command, said in a statement issued with the announcement Tuesday.

Yesterday, Israel gave warning to the Israel citizens in Turkey. And today USA gave this order for own military personel. This news is very important. Because everybody knows that USA governments made many things to hold these military bases into its hands, especially for Incirlik, Adana.
And even nobody wouldn’t have thought that oneday USA will leave these bases! This is impossible! If there is not, yes if there is not…. If there is not really serious war at door of Turkey, USA never leaves these bases.
In 1974 when Cyprus crisis has been USA military personel had left Turkey first and last time. Before then or later then same event has never happened. So it means right now, there is very serious situation after 42 years later. And yes, I guess, maybe my next post may be from battlefront of a war, which doesn’t have a name right now. (I didn’t finish my antibiotics yet, can they give me a time at least when I will feel better:)
Anyway, I may be at first extraterrestrial war correspondent blogger or whatever name will be. If this news is reflecting truth and the things which will come is similar with my guesses, we will see the events short time later.
We’ve captured the village in the morning,
The enemy has not withheld its fire,
Everywhere stone and ashes, what we saw
Nothing was left, believe it.
Perhaps formerly it was beautiful village,
What is it now standing?
On the gallows, maybe a body,
Blackened poplars by flashing.
Ambient ash; who sees ashes says these are snow,
Stoves similar tombstones.
Soldier, you came here late,
The village has been waiting for you too long.
We are walking on the streets,
There is still war far away.
White ash, here and there,
Brutal, reproachful glances.
A dog suddenly appeared in front of us,
It didn’t bark us exultingly.
It looked at our faces as if it says:
”Did you see what fascists did?”

Here is the news in English translation shortly:
“January 25, 2015
In Damascus, the terrorists fired at residential areas. As result two people were killed and more than 20 people were injured, and there are damage to buildings, shops and cars…”
Damascus, so the city of Jasmin, is under the fire in every single day. And all these news are uncategorised. Which category tag can be used? Terror, hypocrisy, war, ISIS, humanity, middle east, Assad, Syria, humanity. Which one you want to choose? Which one you want to choose for the attract to attention for entire world even if for a moment? For to say “stop!” to this uncategorised war… It’s just uncategorised, which is included all categories…
25 января 15
В Дамаске террористы обстреляли жилые районы, в результате чего 2 человека погибли и больше 20 получили ранения и нанесёт ущерб зданиям, магазинам и автомобилям.
Террористическому ракетному и миномётному обстрелу подверглись кварталы Аль-Мазраа, Меззе-86, Кафр-Суси, Аль-Мидан, Аль-Фаххама, Ар-Роуда и улицы Аль-Абед и Багдад, а также район Аль-Аббасиин. Снаряды были выпушены террористами из Восточной Гуты.
Военный источник подтвердил, что армейские подразделения атаковали ряд позиции такфиристских террористических группировок в Восточной Гуте, которые вели обстрел кварталов Дамаска.
Because, Turkey government offical news agency, Anatolian Agency, sent 3 war correspondents to the region Ferguson, USA. :)))
Seems like a joke, but I don’t know, this statement was made by the general manager of the agency twitter account. Maybe joke maybe not, or maybe, the other agencies of that area make a statement like that. The agencies of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Russia, Lebanon, Ukraina, etc there are so many, I don’t want to count more.
Russia’s Ambassador Ankara, Andrey Gennadiyevic Karlov gave an interview to Turkish newspaper “Cumhuriyet”- November 12, 2014
Some specific answers as follows from this interview:
–Why tragedy in Syria could not prevent last three years?
-3 years ago, when the events begin, we warned to our partners, the result would be like that. Unfortunately our prediction has come true. We have tried to explain “there is no military solution to Syria issue,” to particularly US, EU, NATO countries. We were expressing that we need a political solution; because of that Geneva process was occurred. Unfortunately, our American partners, said to us “You do not understand something, the process will be over very quickly,” the same as in other events. Here, for 3 years this tragedy has been continued; many people lost their lives, continues to lose. Syria has a special place in our point of view, because there are tens of thousands of Russian lives.
– Do you support the coalition now?
-This is a very difficult question. Necessarily it needs to struggle with ISIS. And we contribute to this struggle. Example, we are giving ammunition military vehicles to Iraq. We are not part of the coalition that is constituted by United States. Because, in terms of international law, the coalition against ISIS is the short-term and one-time coalition. Especially this coalition was created to achieve to the specific goals. Similar coalitions were formed before, will be formed in the future. But such a coalition’s activities must be compatible with the UN Charter. You can do this in two ways in terms of international law. One of them is with the decision of UN Security Council, and the other is that if this or that country management has recourse for support. I’m sure that Assad wouldn’t recourse with such a claim to United States. On the other hand the United States does not want to take decisions in the Council. The attempt of the walking around sideways to UN is very dangerous, and there are examples of such attempts but they end up badly. For example, in Iraq and Libya. There is no question as “Let’s fight with ISIS” We have to fight with ISIS, but how? This is most important. The drug should not allow to disease progression.
–How do you evaluate the formation of the Kurdish region in Rojava?
-Rojava is part of Syria. The passing of the peshmerga must be approved by Syria management. In our opinion, Syria is a unitary state and should remain so.
– Do you think Assad still strong?
– I think anybody in the world can not give a complete answer to this question. Assad seems still strong. Because, Assad has been in power three and a half years, and he was re-elected as head of state. This country really needs the political reforms. This was recorded in the Geneva meeting. But I would like to underline that political reforms must be part of the political dialogue. Otherwise, conflicts will continue. Currently Syrian army is fighting with terrorists, fighting international terrorism. No matter how much the international terrorist in Syria, the position of Assad will be so strong.
“Syrian state is the watch tower of Iran-Russian.” I am using this definition, which is made in his comment by my friend from the earth, Oktay Dogangun for my post:
And again and again I have to say:“The only solution of this terror problem in the Middle East would be common decision of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Russia. Andrey Gennadiyevic Karlov is right “There is no military solution to Syria issue”

Cultural treasures in Iraq are being looted again; in this time by ISIL. ISIL militants are cutting sculptures head; as the same thing what they do to the people. A known fact, after the invasion of Iraq by America, the Baghdad museum was looted.
Let’s remember those days:
From the quotes http://theamericanscholar.org/the-sack-of-baghdad/#.VF3MjmdM4uk
“It may be impossible to assign blame, but it is easy to pinpoint alternate courses of action. The events at the gallery compound could have been mitigated by any number of choices on the part of U.S. forces: not to invade Iraq at all; to deliver orders for the site’s protection; to circumvent it in battle plans; and then to deliver soldiers and protection once the looting had begun—once, indeed, museum officials had requested help. But such choices were never made, or never acted upon.
At Isin, in the south, the thefts are presided over by the site’s chief guards, who take a cut of all finds; an archaeologist fighting to stop the destruction there was abducted for three weeks last December. Aerial views of Umma, a Sumerian city-state of the third millennium B.C.E., reveal a scene of surgical devastation: a dense honeycomb of cavities from which looters nightly extract thousands of artifacts. “A sea of holes in the desert—negative spaces in history,” write Garen and Carleton in The Looting of the Iraq Museum, noting that “a landscape as desolate as the surface of the moon during the day springs to life after sunset with generators, lightbulbs, trucks, and shovels, as hundreds of looters dig till dawn.”
Where are the American forces? According to the Geneva Convention of 1949, the Hague Convention of 1954, and the UNESCO Convention of 1970, foreign powers owe full responsibility for the protection of cultural treasures in the lands they choose to occupy. But at Isin, not a troop is in sight. At least one officer in the U.S. military, Lt. Col. Daniel O’Donohue, has told a New York Times reporter that the Iraqis must defend any “fixed site” on their own.
Nowadays, the head cutter creatures who called ISIL, are doing the same thing.
“Qais Hussain Rashid, director general of Iraqi museums, told CNN of the depredations carried out by ISIS militants.
“They cut these reliefs and sell them to criminals and antique dealers,” he said, gesturing toward an ornate carving dating back thousands of years.
“Usually they cut off the head, leaving the legs, because the head is the valuable part.”
And there are praises to the Iraq’s cultural treasures again. How much hypocritical humanity is!
I’m curious. What will the people who live on the planet right now, leave legacy as cultural? Do you believe that you do have more than Hammurabi’s cultural legacy? Did you make any Babylon Hanging Gardens or Tower of Babylon? Did you? I can’t hear you!
I tell you what you will leave behind yourself. Nothing! If you keep going like these, you are starting the disable and stupid humanity age. Good for you!
For the all museum looting:

Today, there is a lot of news about the terrorism and the war. These news now became commonplace. But, why? If humanity is a living organism, which tries to complete the development and evolution, then why the war and terrorism are on the agenda constantly?
Each organism undertakes complementary tasks without being aware of own evolution. They do many things in their lives. Actually, the genes tell to the organism: “you have to do these things, if you want to continue and survive.”
Let’s see the animals’ agenda:
Bees’ agenda is based on making honey
Dolphins’ agenda is based on going to the warm waters
Cats’ agenda is based on being most popular sharing video. -Ok, this one was not appropriate:)
People agenda is based on the war and the terrorism. But, it shouldn’t be easy like that. If so, a common feature of these articles must be. It is enough to shoot a glance to these news, the common point of all are flags. There are always the flags in the war pictures background. And they are planting these flags, killing thousands of people. As a living organism, the humanity is the only species, who misunderstood the evolutionary process. Unfortunately, planting the flag is not a way for protecting natural areas of the habitat. And again unfortunately, you cannot go on to the next evolution level with planting the flag.
Worst part of this action is not limited with only this planet. They do the same thing wherever they go. I’m transferring this information to the other species in the universe. If someday, if you see a species, which came with a piece of shaped fabric and a long stick in his hand to your planet, not forget that it has not yet completed the evolution of own species. Be gentle to them. Their perception is a little bit weak mostly.
In here, you put the Russian flag, China flag or the others instead of the American flag. All are doing the same thing; it does not change anything.
Yes, humanity sees the planting the flag as a step to complete the evolution. This case has been continuing in this way since the medieval age. The philosophers and the scientists have perished in vain. Darwin has written the origin of species in vain, Giordano Bruno was burned in vain. In fact, humanity did not understand anything about evolution.
