How dangerous is Turkey (the country) these days?

Would love to visit Turkey, but a lot of scary sh!! in recent news. Anyone have any feel for how dangerous it really is? Has anyone actually been? Are the archaeological sites worth risking my life, or should I shelve the idea for a few decades?

U.S. citizens are warned of increased threats from terrorist groups in Turkey. Carefully consider the need to travel to Turkey at this time, and avoid travel to southeast Turkey due to the persistent threat of terrorism. The Department of State has placed restrictions on official travel by U.S. government personnel to Istanbul and to certain areas in southeast Turkey. This replaces the Travel Warning dated October 29, 2016.
It doesn't sound like great timing

Turkey used to be a cool place to visit and was extremely secular for that part of the world. Those days have come to an end as far as I'm concerned. You'd have to pay me alot of money and a detailed promise of security to get me anywhere near that place, and I'm a pretty seasoned world traveler.

Any fanny pack wearing pale face gets there head lopped off in that corner of the world gets no sympathy from me.

I suspect it's safe. Turks are more European than Middle Eastern, and I think they're proud that they're a secular state rather than a theocracy.

That said, I'm pretty much just avoiding the Muslim world these days. I'll wait another 20 years until it's safe again. These things always run in cycles.

Maybe as a practice run you should visit Chicago and get on the train in a Trump T shirt. Maybe around oak park.

There is a travel warning from the state.

Well, I don't wear a fanny pack and I'm not particularly pale but I would obviously be a tourist. Looks like there is a bombing every month, just wasn't sure if that is isolated to specific sites or if it is everywhere.

While sites like the US State Department and CDC are good recommendations for lots of travelers, I find that I am less conservative than lots of travelers. Visited a lot of places that people consider dangerous and had no troubles. 2017 Turkey might not fall into that category, though. Just checking if anyone had been recently and could counter what seems to be some pretty terrible violence in the news.

I guess my post could be read as an insult, that wasn't my intend.

I know a few people that have been and they loved it, but were talking 80's/90's. I'd imagine that you could visit without issue.

I would also boycott them for the sole reason that their government has recently been supporting terrorist groups, namely ISIS. Not to mention they just had a pseudo Coup d'état attempt last summer. That's just me though. I'd consider that a young mans play. The older I get the more cautious I get.

What you could do is just wear a fake suicide belt and you would fit right in.

If you have to ask hope safe a country is, it's probably best not to visit said county.

Well, I mean the government just staged a coup so they could crack down on basically everything and go farther down the road to full sharia.

So thats nice.
