Bad news, over 160 people are dead, and Erdoğan is untouchable from now on.

These wasn't ordinary military coup, there were no more then few thousand solders following orders from few generals. Navy and most other military branches were never involved and against it, including all the opposition parties.

To answer RC's question, Erdoğan is claiming that Fethullah Gülen was behind this.

Fethullah Gülen is a Islamic scholar, he has a lot of schools around the world and lives in United States. His movement is associated with a lot of charter schools across the United States. They seem to be more secular in foreign countries but in Turkey they literally brainwash their cult members.

Izel,

Just needed to say a special thank you for posting and keeping us updated (as best you could) from your very unique point of view on what's going on.

Izel, are you hearing anything about the suspension of the judges? If true I'd like to know how the administration justifies gutting the justice system? Is that even legal?

They're talking about it now, 2745 judges and prosecutors have been dismissed.

Good news is, the parliament and people seems more united today then they have been in decade, this was an act of treason by few generals ordering soldiers to shoot they're own people. This has never been seen in this country, which is most likely what got the people against it and they failed. A lot of the soldiers turned down their weapons and disobey their orders within minutes of the coup. Even those who hate Erdoğan seem to be in support of the government. Like I mentioned few times in this thread, military in Turkey is a holy thing, everyone joins and serves, if you do not, you'd be looked down. For Turks to go against their military or wise versa is unheard. A lot of people will be heavily punished for this.

Izel,
Have you heard the rumours that the treasonous generals were actually far-right wing extremists who considered Erdogan to be too liberal / secular?

If not, please start one.

Thanks.

So he was able to manipulate some of the military leaders to play into his hands. The fact that the military there has done this before repeatedly and yet made such basic "mistakes", like not arresting him, not shutting down communications and not enforcing their rule just reeks.

He will benefit from all of this the most.

He now gets to rid the country of people who oppose him and he gets to pass whatever laws he wants.

I think it's also possible most of the military was waiting for a signal from uncle Sam. When it became clear the US was opposed, they decided to change direction.

Well, Erdoğan is claiming Fethullah Gülen and his "dogs" (In Erdoğan's words) were behind this. If true then yes, Fethullah Gülen is right wing and has huge support base by right wingers here and abroad. Here is one of them, talking about going to help his brothers and take down the government.

I would also like to remind all of you that the media here is very unreliable. It is controlled by Erdoğan's government and they report exactly what Erdoğan wants them to.

A lot of people here believe that this coup was done by Erdoğan himself. Coups are usually done at mid-night, when everyone's asleep and no one can react until it's all over. This one was done literally at prime time 21:30. Immediately after Erdoğan encouraged people to get out to the streets via facetime. Very fishy Dodgy

I believe this too. I think it was a power grab by Erdogan.

Oh, and that speech he held was very smooth, all planned out...
