Captain Sinan Eroglu: Laid to rest in Istanbul

We must salute all of those men and women who serve our country as it's protectors, and we must especially honor those who pay the ultimate price fighting on the front lines. G-d bless Sinan Eroglu and his grieving family.

Maybe we should also show the picture of the funeral of the fallen Kurdish civilians???

This type of engagement is wrong for all sides. And 'war' is not the answer in dealing with the terrorists (i.e. Iraq)

Join the 'Ron Paul' revolution . . .

I agree with Metin. Although I would nuance a little the "terrorist" word as well.

Let the Kurds show the pictures and videos of fallen Kurdish people/civilians/terrorists/whatever. They have enough of their own fucking tv stations that they don't need Turkish media to do it FOR them..

i think you "should" post whatever you want to post, and whomever you want to post (including that "tree man" dude, yuck, still not over that, and its been weeks).

all joking aside, i haven't been following the civil war in turkey lately, so i am "glad" (if you can use such a word in this case) that you post pics and news blurbs about recent events, aside from your personal posts.

Actually Kurds have no tv station in Turkey. They are only authorized to broadcast in Kurdish for - I think - half an hour or an hour per week, around 6 a.m...
