Well if they're really doing it for the reasons they say they are (pro secularism/anti Islamism) then I'm not going to miss Erdogan. Then again stability is what the Middle East needs right now.

Interesting/worrying times.

The late Ataturk did seem to prepare them to defend secularism going forward, although they have been a wee bit quiet of late.

Seems like they'd had enough of El Presidente though....

So was it staged by Erdogan then?

I'm not suggesting it was, I don't know. These are some of the arguments floating about at the moment:

*He was in his holiday home and most of the internet seemingly knew this. Why didn't the coup make him their top priority.
*The coup was as effectual as a wet paper towel, almost like they weren't really that arsed.
*He's fired 2,500+ judges and is busy purging as much opposition as he can as we speak.
*What are the chances he now tries to make some tasty amendments to Turkeys constitution backed by a wave of public sentiment?
*It's no secret that he has Islamist ideals.
*Persistent rumours of indirect support for ISIS.

It is all a bit strange. The Turkish military are quite handy, for the most part. They have the numbers, the training and the equipment to make a coup work, whether anyone else likes it, or not. It is, of course, quite possible that Erdogan has been quietly manipulating the Officer class over the years to suit his tastes....

If all these people were involved in any insurrection it would likely have been successful.

Called it.

Not sure if Erdogan is going for the 3rd Reich or The First Galactic Empire as a role model yet though.

The US has already been arming the Kurds to fight ISIS.

There's no reason not to think once they are finished with them they wont turn their attention on Turkey.

Turkey hasn't been kind to the Kurds. Although the Kurds are the only ones who seem to be any good at fighting ISIS, plus seem to be actually quite a liberal people. Maybe that's why Erdogan doesn't like them.

Q. Why does Pres. Erdogan hate pigeons?










A. He heard they were planning a coo.

You know, if only Mein Kampf came with a sticker that said "Do not try this at home!" we wouldn't have all these problems.

The problem is not philosophy. The problem is moustaches. We need to stamp out this evil as soon as it rears its hairy face.
