The current news are bad. There are serial trials in court for a suspected military coup planners from the army.. Some say it’s done to weaken the army. We’ll see what happens. The tension rises between the religious part and the modern seculars. Kurdish seperatists are problems also. They say their rights are violated, and they are outsiders, immigrants.

why country borrows from IMF instead of printing more currency notes?
Mustafa Singapore Admin answers:
its completely unfavorable for the economy when they print new notes, because each one note have its face value and actual value, before printing new notes government has to save some reserve value in the form of gold, silver or some times it may be in form of currency(ratio is different for each country and mostly about 30%). When there is the situation in which government have to borrow from the IMF that’s mean they have no enough resources to have reserve value for printing new notes, if they print new currency that will be deficit financing, and this will generate inflation and results into lowers the currency actual or real value, so in this case country have to face high price rates and less investment and more unemployment.
What is it with Turks and Mustafa Kemal Ataturk? Why do they worship him?!?
Now, I’m an American and our first president, George Washington, he was a great guy too, who fought heroically and victoriously for our nation’s freedom.
But in the US we don’t have:
– Washington’s face on every single currency
– a giant masoleum to venerate Washington
– to stop our cars at the exact moment Washington died (whenever that is)
– laws against insulting Washington (we DO have free speech!)
– statues of Washington basically everywhere
I mean, I can understand that Ataturk made the Turks nonreligious and everything, but he wanted people to worship him instead?!?!
So he basically wanted Turkey to be like North Korea??
Mustafa Singapore Admin answers:
He is a powerful symbol for a lot of things, such as Turkey’s independence, territorial integrity and commitment to a rational, secular democracy. (If you don’t see why, read his biography.) When people feel that these things are in danger, they turn to Ataturk for inspiration and encouragement. Are these things in danger? Many people feel that integration with the EU and the consequential opening-up of the Turkish economy are dangerously undermining Turkish independence. Kurdish separatism and Armenian claims on Turkish territory are constant threats on territorial integrity, while Islamist political movements threaten the rational, secular democracy. As long as these threats persist, Ataturk will remain a source of inspiration for any Turk who dreams of getting out of this mess one day. If Turkey ever manages to solve these critical issues, then she can start looking toward the future with more confidence and self-assurance, and finally move on beyond the cult of Ataturk.

While there is a USAFIS green card diversity (DV) lottery, that email did NOT come from the US government.
The US government uses “dot gov” email addresses NOT “usa.com”, NOT “yahoo.com” or anything else. The US government notifies winners via the United States postal service by sending paperwork to their home address NEVER via email. The next email will be from another of the scammer’s fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the “diversity lottery official” and will contain a list of made-up fees to be paid in cash, and only by Western Union or moneygram.
Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.
Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his ‘potential sucker’ list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.
Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don’t bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn’t worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.
Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even partial sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.
If you google “fake green card lottery”, “fraud diversity DV lottery scam”, “green card Western Union scam” or something similar you will find hundreds of posts of victims and near-victims of this type of scam.
Has anyone followed up on this story regarding the Osama Bin Laden Conspiracy?
THE CIA IS SUPPRESSING THIS WITH THE MADE UP BIN LADEN KILLED STORY
EVERYONE WHO STARTED COPYING AND PASTING THIS ON ALL BIN LADEN STORIES YESTERDAY GOT MESSAGE BOARDS SHUT DOWN. WONDER WHY?
Here are some wanted terrorists, some for U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya & Indonesia, look-a-likes for media moguls, CEO’s, and the current administration. This is a large organization of scam artists who ran the last election on Youtube. I’ve been tortured after reporting this 3 years ago to FBI
All of this was online years before the last election. Search Google Images for;
Mark Joyner Simpleology-FBI Wanted Seif Al Adel (Sarah Palin’s book Palinology)
John Ferrero-FBI Wanted Ramadan Shallah
Yaro Starak-FBI Wanted Umar Patek
Armand Morin FBI Wanted and now “dead” Noordin M Top
Michael Filsaime—FBI Wanted Ali Sayyid Muhamed Mustafa al-Bakri (Die Hard 4 “Fire Sale” The cyber attack on our infrastructure)
Dr. Mani Sivasubramanian-FBI Wanted Ammar Mansour Bouslim
Carl Galletti-FBI Wanted–Ahmed Garbaya, Samir Salwwan
Ted Ciuba-FBIWanted Abdul Rahman Yasin
Keep in mind that some people may not even be aware that their images are being used, that they’re being used, or who’s using them.
Jay Abraham- (look a like for Osama’s right hand man Ayman al-Zawahri)
Jay Conrad Levinson- (look a like for George Soros)–key point (mastermind? Proponent for a one world government, collapsing of currencies)
Internet Million Dollars Professor James Bradley- Communist University Professor Bill Ayers (the Pentagon bomber)
Rosalind Gardner-(Jill Biden or look a like)

Lorrie Morgan Ferrero’s Red-Hot-Copy.com blog and website has others associated with the current administration, in addition to 72 Virgin Records Richard Branson, and White House Party Crashers the Salahi’s with Valerie Jarrett’s daughter Laura.
Sarah Palin’s family & history is fabricated using logarithms. She became a media magnet to flush out Barack (O’Bomber) Obama’s entire socialist “organized community.” Her name, Sarah (Barrac)uda) Palin, is short for palindrome, such as SOROS. McCain’s favorite band is ABBA, another palindrome. They both claim to be Mavericks. Palin coined the term “mama grizzly.” Interstate 77 American Airlines Stadium NBA Maverick Mark Cuban was under investigation for insider trading of a search company called Mamma. The first forum to attack and hack me online was FIB Scams 101 with the owner called Mama. On 9/11 American Airlines flight 77 hit the Pentagon. Palin’s daughter “Willow,” is short for Willow Run Airport off I-94, her birthday 7/7/94. “Piper,” also a plane, shares a birthday with Bruce Willis (John McC(l)ane the guy who fights the terrorists in Die Hard.) Sarah’s “siblings” are Heather Heath Bruce and Molly Heath McCa(n)n. “Trig” Palin shares a birthday with congressmen from WI, IL, and MI. “Track” Palin shares a birthday with Adolf Hitler. Obama shares a birthday with Nobel Peace Prize winner Yasser Arafat. “Tripp” Palin appears to have multiple birthdays, like Yasser.
In my strongest opinion, Osama Bin Laden is also a spokesperson, and a look-a-like. Osama represents Obama/Biden (Bi)n La(den.)
