    Istanbul

    Advertisements
    Well, if you haven't heard by now Turkey's major airport in Istanbul was attacked.

    Istanbul airport explosions: 36 dead, 147 injured, Turkish officials says - CNN.com

    At least 36 dead, 147 injured in suspected ISIS attack at Istanbul airport | Fox News

    I don't really know what to say about these attacks anymore. My brother was flying back to Macedonia from Italy so I'm hoping he made it safe.

    I saw this at work today my heart goes out to the families of those killed or injured. The world needs to do something to fix the world. I hope you hear from your brother soon and that he is ok!

    Yes, but I'm not sure if his flight went through Istanbul. His Facebook says he was active 3 hours ago, so I'm hoping that's accurate. It is really fucking sad.

    This was my first thought. Warnings were issued that something tragic was going to happen. To avoid travel. They were also telling people stationed over there to make plans to come home immediatly. Some were being stubborn and holding out. It said the international departures was the target. Scary stuff for sure.

    So now youre blaming people for being there? Thats not how I meant what I said. I was asking because I wasnt sure if I remembered that correctly. And I think its scary that even when we know its gonna happen, we cant stop it. To minimize peoples deaths because they were being 'stubborn' is beyond fucked up.

    I said that people who were holding out died??? OR even deserved to die?? There were warnings and yes there was those who said they werent leaving until they had to. I am hoping that noone that decided to stay died.
