      It is only the beginning. As the turkish army is killing more ISIS, it will boomerang inside Turkey. A large part of the Turks are supporters of any group with an Islamist goal. Erdogan has encouraged the growth of Islamists, they are now expressing their disagreement with Erdogan's killing their allies.
      Turkey is falling into a state of total insecurity that would take a toll on the economy.
