Yes the 'JV' team has struck again. They successfully killed upwards of 50 people at the Istanbul airport. So what to do? Call it "an act of despair in the face of defeat". How could you possibly come up with this absurd statement!?!
So the Paris attack, Brussels, the downed Russian airliner, San Bernardino, Orlando etc, is ISIS showcasing their weakness in the face of defeat?
Secretary Of State John Kerry said ISIS had begun targeting airports as an act of despair in the face of defeat, hours after the attack that left up to 50 dead in Istanbul, Turkey.
How does he come up with this distinction? If this took place at a busy shopping mall would it still be "an act of despair in the face of defeat"?
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the shootings and bombings at Ataturk airport but Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said all initial indications pointed to ISIS.
Kerry spoke about the attack Tuesday evening while at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, referring to ISIS as Daesh, CBS News reported.
'It has been more than one year since Daesh has actually launched a full scale military offensive, and that's because our coalition is moving relentlessly on every front,' he said.
Really...Guess he hasn't been keeping up with the news lately.
Secretary of State John Kerry (pictured in London Monday) said that ISIS had begun targeting airport because they felt desperate in the face of defeat, after the attack that left up to 50 dead in Istanbul, Turkey
'Now, yes, you can bomb an airport, you can blow yourself up. That's the tragedy,' Kerry continued.
'And if you're desperate and if you know you are losing, and you know you want to give up your life, then obviously you can do some harm.'
Wait a minute. Muslims blowing themselves up is supposed to be some sort of anomaly? A day doesn't go by without a Muslim blowing them self up somewhere in the world. During Ramadan, if they could, they'd blow them self up twice... (72x2=144 virgins)
The Secretary Of State said officials were still collecting information and trying to determine what happened and who perpetrated the attack.
Three terrorists sprayed the crowd with bullets before detonating three bombs, injuring more than 140 people.
The death toll was expected to rise to 50 as of Tuesday night according to Turkish authorities.
'I won't comment further on it except to say that this is daily fare and that's why I say the first challenge we need to face is countering non-state violent actors, for a host of reasons,' Kerry added Tuesday.
So now he states this goes on every day! They 'fail' daily in despair? Hate to see what the fuck would happen if they were winning.
The attackers arrived at the airport in a taxi Tuesday before the attacks, according to Yildirim, who said the three opened fire before blowing themselves up.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged other nations to join the fight against terror after the attack.
He said: 'If states, as all humanity, fail to join forces and wage a joint fight against terrorist organisations, all the possibilities that we dread in our minds will come true one by one.'
