Turkish special forces try to break down door, end up knocking

Turkish Special Forces Try to Break Down Door, End Up Knocking?
'Good Morning America' has a rather embarrassing video of Turkish special forces trying to raid a suspect's house.

'Turkish special forces were conducting a raid on a suspect's house, using [a] battering ram, trying to knock that door down to no avail, so they finally give up and they knock,' 'GMA' reported.

Of course, the media's having fun with this one. One headline said the police had been beaten by a door. Ouch.

After the assumed knock, which isn't shown on camera, the man inside simply opened the door.

Redditors are chiming in, noting that was a very solid door ... and that sometimes all you have to do is be nice!

Daily Mail says the door might have been steel-reinforced, which, as you can imagine, would be incredibly hard to knock down.

Not much is known about the events surrounding the incident, such as why the house was even being searched in the first place.

Well what sort of special force do turkeys have anyway, after all? 'Gobble gobble' isn't much of a force.

This reminds me of an old Steve McQueen movie I saw years ago. I think he was a detective and a young man with him tries to run into a door and knock it down with his shoulder. He hurts his shoulder and Steve McQueen steps forward and simply turns the door knob and opens the door.

Turkey used to be friendly to Israel, but no more. They refused to let US forces go through their territory into Iraq in 2003. (They were more scared of the Kurds than Saddam.) They are #3 in US aid after Israel and Egypt. Time to cut the aid unless they treat the Kurds better and acknowledge the Armenian genocide.

Somewhere on Youtube there is gun camera video taken by a Greek Air Force fighter plane that was maneuvering against a Turkish F-16. The Turkish pilot would've dead meat if it had been a real dogfight. He couldn't get the Greek off his tail.

Big deal! the same happened in Iraq when one female troop was taken to an Iraq hospital. US troops beat the door down and caused a lot of other damage they thought she had been kidnapped, only to find out the Doctors were treating her for injuries. The Doctors told the troops all you had to do was knock.
