The manhunt continues for a gunman who killed 39 people in an Istanbul nightclub as Turkey marked the start of the new year.I would argue that they are not trying to, "Create chaos," they are exploiting the chaos that Erdogan created in Syria through tacit and explicit support of Salafist fighters in his attempt to depose Assad.
The unknown assailant opened fire at Reina nightclub early on Sunday, before managing to flee amid the chaos.
The motive for the attack is not clear, but suspicion has fallen on the Islamic State group, already linked to at least two terror attacks in Turkey last year.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said such groups tried "to create chaos".
This sort of sh%$ always comes back to bite you in the ass.
