Soldiers surrendering on the bosphorus bridge. Dozens..
Mihi vindictam ego retribuam dicit Dominus
It has been five coups in Turkey since the 1970s......don't look like this one gonna stick.
Now that the coup failed, the sultan will be picking his revenge left and right.
The fear is in him now, he will reign like Stalin with suspicion and will persecute worse.
If you think he used to be a psycho, wait and see what will come out of him soon. Just give him few weeks to re-inflate himself.
Turkey is declaring war on the U.S. unless they release gulenboy
"Turkish PM: Any country that stands by cleric Gulen will be at war with Turkey"
If this coupe is already collapsing then I would suspect that it was all a set up. Military commanders do not make plans that fail so quickly. This has a potential of catapulting a unpopular leader back to popularity and legitimacy. I suspect there is more to this and we will see huge changes in Turkey in many ways.
Hayastan or Bust.
A beak up with USA leaves him isolated but will rise his popularity at home I think. I hope there is an acrimonious fallout with USA.
unbelievable. A circus act. Military leaders of the 2nd largest army in Europe are not stupid enough to stage a coup with <1000 soldiers taking over non-strategic bridges, bombing random buildings with a single helo, and not capturing the PM who was hanging out at a villa on the sea that could have been leveled with one bomb.
oh, and letting him fly in an unprotected jet right back to istanbul airport in the very middle of the "coup" with every amateur internet flyboy able to track the altitude and location. Surely that helo could have shot down that little plane, in the air or certainly on the ground?
Ridiculous. He just orchestrated his way to mass purge of the military, and islamized the remnant of Turkish society. He will pressure Aliyev to do similar.
Our Sultan neighbor will now be even more trouble, I'm afraid.
Do you guys think that with more powerful erdogan there may be more tension with Russia's Syria policy?
There is allready tension building up between turkey and US.
I am not speaking about problems with EU and Germany also.
This does not look very good for situation in Caucasus. Abviousely erdogan commands a large public support and he is going to solidify and pursue his policies stronger.
Let us not jump into conclusions. The outcome of his behavior will dictate what really went on.
Most likely, he will have free reign with bobama, imposing the extradition of that other carpet bending gulenboy.
I don't think the country is very stable at this stage. PKK boys should use this opportunity to their advantage creating more instability in the West of the country.
They have a two week window to make it happen before the sultan stabilizes the country.
"Access to air base housing US nukes in Turkey blocked, power cut off "
"188 arrest warrants issued for members of Turkey’s supreme courts"
--- more tension with Russia/USA ---
USA putting their pressure on erdojerk to seal last 60 miles of border and Russia wanting that since day one. It looks like erdoboy has a golden opportunity to alienate both USA/Russia by throwing a hissy fit to consolidate his in country popularity. He ain't popular most anywhere else. A classic erdoboy hissy fit is what I'd like to see cause the world finds that act repulsive.
This is not the time to send this idiot menstraul cramp medication (idol).
Get xxxxxy boy.
