Explosion for Real

Yesterday there was a double bombing in Istanbul. First one drew the crowds, second one was deadly.
The place was a residential neighborhood. Please don’t think this is normal for Turkey—this is like a bomb going off in Glendale.
So far, the people suspect the PKK (Kurdish Separatists), but doesn’t seem right. Maybe extremists are trying to destabilize the political situation in Turkey, because there is a legal movement to recall the democratically elected, although religious, AK Party government.

sorry about multiple videos, there was a commercial that snuck its way into the embedding... now can't get it out, and I'm too tired to redo this post...
