Since the Arab Spring , Turkey has been ' on a knife-edge '  Social anger & unrest has remained at boiling point with widespread political corruption & oppression , evident in the govt's recent shutdown of social media such as Twitter & YouTube to suppress dissent. Then just on the 1st anniversary of the 2013 Turkish riots comes the worst mining disaster in Turkey's history,  leaving almost 300 miners dead & corrupt politicians & mine owners facing the public backlash.  Further enraged by video footage of Turkey's PM Ergodan & his officials ' caught ' physically beating & brutalizing local miners , the streets of the mining town , Soma , Istanbul & the capital Ankara have erupted in violent protests , threatening to unhinge Turkey's fragile social & political stability.  With ' tensions ' between Russia & Turkey escalating dramatically in recent days with the unfolding Ukraine crisis, the time will soon come when Vladimir Putin will seize upon Turkey's unravelling chaos  before his latter-day invasion of the Middle East & Israel

Ezek 38v3-8  -  I am against thee O Gog , chief prince of Meshech & Tubal ( Russia ) :  I will turn thee back  &  put hooks into thy jaws  &  I will bring thee forth  &  all thine army , even a great company Persia (Iran) , Ethiopia  &  Libya with them , Gomer  &  all his bands ; the house of Togarmah ( TURKEY ) of the north quarters  &  all his bands  &  many people with thee. Be thou prepared  &  prepare for thyself , thou & all thy company that are assembled unto thee  &  be thou a guard unto them . . . in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword  &  is gathered out of many people , against the mountains of Israel
