ISTANBUL, July 17, 2016: Two young women attend a pro-government demonstration outside the city hall in Istanbul, as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed to purge the "virus" within state bodies. Erdogan made his remarks at the funeral of those killed during a coup attempt he blames on his enemy Fethullah Gulen. ***** I am much too small in this world, yet not small enough to be to you just object and thing, dark and smart. I want my free will and want it accompanying the path which leads to action; and want during times that beg questions, where something is up, to be among those in the know, or else be alone. -- Rainer Maria Rilke
