Hello for whoever reading this :), I am Turkish007, (also known as TurkishCommando007) I am living in Istanbul, but my hometown is Rize, which is the land of tea, corn-bread, anchovy, cabbage, and crooked noses :D I dont have a lot of time to play games, but when I do I play Battlefield 1942 + its mods (Battlefield 1918 rocks!), Battlefield 2 + its mods (especially Forgotten Hope 2), Verdun Online, etc...

9 comments by Turkish007 on Feb 26th, 2014

On the day of 22nd October 1993, with a large group of PKK militants, total 1600 men, infiltrating into the town of Lice, Diyarbakır a huge battle started between the local garrison of the Turkish Army.

Location of Diyarbakır

The terrorists launch AT rockets and fire PKM's from houses, apartments, tall buildings, mosque minarets, on to the municipality center, the hospital, and all the buildings representing the Republic of Turkey.

As the assault begins, Diyarbakır Gendarmerie commander Bahtiyar Aydın takes off with a S70 Skorsky helicopter and is dropped off at the courtyard of the divisional HQ in Lice. As he and his men run over to the building to get in safe and sound, the militants open sniper fire and Bahtiyar Aydin loses his life on the spot. Colonel Eşref Hatipoğlu takes command. 

As the clashes go on, Lieutenant General Hasan Kundakçı and his assistant Ilker Başbuğ fly to Lice to aid Eşref Hatipoğlu and his men trapped in the divisional HQ. The pilot of the helicopter does not want to risk being shot down as heavy machine gun fire starts as they try to land to the divisional HQ courtyard. The S70 Skorsky helicopter turns around and lands at the garden of a school which is used as a makeshift field hospital.

Hasan Kundakçı (right)

As the radio conversation of the PKK is being listened, the radio operator hears one militant saying "Lets target that school, 55 dead men will sure make a huge scandal!" and directs his men to the school which is full of 55 wounded soldiers, and 2 major ranked generals. 

There is no chance of support coming from the Gendarmerie garrison (which is 20km's to the East) to the school because the divisional HQ is under heavy fire and is about to fall into the hands of the PKK. And all of the 12 trucks in the batallion are now inactive and wrecked.

Hasan Kundakçı adresses his men demoralized and injured, trapped in the school:

"The enemy has chosen us as we are a weak target for them, but we will prove that we are not! It is better to die fighting than to die while laying on a stretcher. It is going to be hard, and most likely we will not survive. But it is worth for our country! Everyone gather at the hall."

The men who hear this from the speakers of the school, take up arms and take their positions on the windows, the roof and the school gate. 55 men without their legs or arms, 2 generals, and 2 helicopter pilots fortify themselves and await for the attack.

They fight off the guerillas for 14 hours until reinforcements arrive. The PKK is driven back from Diyarbakir. The town is in ruins, yet it is cleaned from all terrorist activity.

No. Kemalism is not racist/fascist. It aims to unite multiple races under one flag and one nation.

Turkey is not only made of Turks as you know, we have Kurds, Greeks, Georgians, Armenians, Circassians, Abkhazians, Arabs, Assyrians, Zazakis and many other minorities. I am Georgian myself, but I call myself a Turk. I speak Turkish, I live in Turkey, I earn my money from these lands, and I lovemy country more than anything and will kill and get killed for it.

So no, Kemalism is a combination of nationalism, capitalism and social democratic secularism.

Does it lean towards left or right? Far right is Nazism and far left is communism. USA is either right with Republican party or left with Democratic party. President Obama is the President of the United States and he is a Democrat, so USA is a little left right now. Democracy is either a little left or a little right.

Hey, don't know if you've caught this yet although you probably have. The stuff going down in Ukraine is crazy. They're livestreaming the revolt although atm, it looks like things have calmed down. Thought you might find this interesting because of what happened in Turkey. Crazy.

Not Luxembourg, the country is too small for there to be any uprisings or political unrest :)

Also, did you know Luxembourg is the worlds largest cheese consumer?

Fascists and communists are sworn enemies of each other, I find it hard to believe that the two can be combined.
