A bomb blast on Tuesday wrecked a bus which was carrying Military Personnel and their families in Istanbul Turkey. There is growing criticism of the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Government who have failed to stop this PKK Violence . the violence is perpetuated by the PKK which are the Kurdish Separist Group. The view that the violence will create pressure on the Turkish Government is applicable. The lira and the bonds in Turkey have taken a "knock" and have fallen, so I suppose those who visit Istanbul's wonderful City of European Culture in 2010 must have to hang onto our seats particularly if the whole city of Istanbul has ground to a halt, and been seriously affected by this massive bomb blast in Istanbul. So its a stretch to continue to ignore the PKK Terrorist Threat with such a fierce bomb blast in Istanbul recently. Personally, I am inundated with requests to invest in Istanbul and only last weekend I received yet another very plausible blog from Invesstment Companies in Istanbul Turkey and the whole issue is linked with Turkey's wish to join the EU . European Union and of course Britain is a Member .. Reuters!
