35 Dead In Terror Attack at Istanbul Nightclub
— Open Blogger

Apparently the killer was dressed as Santa Claus.

Thirty five people have been killed in an armed attack in an Istanbul nightclub, the city's governor has revealed.
The gunman, believed to have been dressed in a Santa costume, opened fire inside the Reina nightclub in Istanbul's Ortaköy district, where hundreds were celebrating the New Year.
A further 40 people are thought to have been wounded in the attack, which has been captured in CCTV footage. It happened at 1.30am local time.
Special forces officers have stormed the building, but the location of the gunman is unknown. A media blackout has been imposed by the Turkish government.
Many party-goers threw themselves into the Bosphorus in panic after the attack, and had to be rescued. One report said the gunman had later been killed.
The Foreign Office said it is liaising with authorities to establish whether any Britons were caught up in the massacre.

Prayers for the victims. I hope the rest of you morons stay safe out there. See you next year, and open thread until the ONT

157 As of the census[2] of 2010, there were 12,046 people, 5,364 households, and 2,880 families residing in the town. Almost all of the population is concentrated in two census-designated places identified in the town: Brattleboro and West Brattleboro. The results of the 2010 census indicate very little change in the overall number of people living in the Town. Despite this, Brattleboro remains the most populous town along Vermont's eastern border.

The population density of the town was 375.3 people per square mile (144.9/km2). There were 5,686 housing units at an average density of 177.7 per square mile (68.6/km2). The racial makeup of the town was 92.1% White, 1.9% Black or African American, 0.3% Native American, 2.2% Asian, 0.04% Pacific Islander, 0.6% from other races, and 2.8% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.7% of the population.

Posted by: rickl at December 31, 2016 10:10 PM (sdi6R) fnord (sdi6R) Such an alliance against ISIS might actually give some results in an area that almost universally foils attempts to stop the slaughter - but I trust Pooty about as far as I can comfortably spit out a mouth full of cockroaches. Controlling ISIS (and Soros for that matter), however, would definitely be in his interests.

181 It's sad that anyone with some knowledge of history, and a sense of how things usually work could easily foresee what's happening in the Islamic world. They were angry at the rest because they were outclassed culturally and militarily, so they came up with the idea of terrorism, they played with it, they coddled it, they supported it, they snickered every time a terrorist attack happened in the west because they figured we had it coming to us. And now, hundreds of thousands are dead across the islamic world, formerly organized nations such as Syria and Libya are nothing but charnel houses, and the deadliest terrorist attacks are happening almost daily in the world's major islamic cities. Although it's tempting to cite "karma", that word most of the time is just a handy description of the way the world usually works. Another way to put it is, be damned careful of the shit you start, because 9 times out of 10 that shit is gonna end up landing on your own head. Make that 99 times out of 100. (Obama and most of the left are some more who've never figured that out. Maybe to be conservative is to simply understand how the world really works)

But snark aside, motivation in that part of the world can ber difficult to ascertain. Was he a Muslim on the losing side in Syria unhappy with the peace brokered by Putin and Turkey? Was he doing the old Shiite-Sunni shootemup--each side hapyht to shoot the other. Was he a Kurd seeking a separate Kurdish state? There are a whole lot of crazy Mo Fos in the Middle East, coming from every direction. One thing you can bet on--the shooter wasn't a member of the Baptist Church.
