You'll be okay. This is an internal Turkish issue. Greece cannot afford a war.

Greece can't afford to buy a vowel.

I'm fine everyone, thank you all very much for your concerns. We are advised to stay inside, looks like we are in a brink of a civil war. Turks hold their military in a very high regard but, Erdoğan has major followers, and most of them are the religious crazier and that is what scares me. This has happened here 4 times before, last one in 1997, however Erdoğan is not going down without fight. I'm at my parents house because I was scared to be alone, I'll try and keep you guys up to date with everything.

Good to know you are home. I am seeing shooting happening in the streets of Istanbul.

A NATO country attacking another NATO country? No.

Thanks for the info Izel and I am glad you are ok. The difference between Erdogan and the military is the military has the arms. Erdogan can jump.

RE: Breaking News: Turkish Army Launches Military Coup Against Erdogan's Government!
So let me take a stab at this that my little pea brain understands.

Turkey's government has been secular for quite some time while still being primarily Islamic and tolerant to other faiths.

Erdogan is trying to break that secularism by introducing religious laws into the government.

The generals in the world's 6th largest army like the way it is. A secular, tolerant government.

The generals stage a military coup.

That about right?

#sigh

Pretty much right. To be precise, thanks to Atatürk, Turkey is a secular state per constitution. Yet religion has much more undermined it, namely with Erdogan in the lead (picture a mormon, or that brain surgeon fundie xian becoming president in the US).
There is one additional factor thou. A man called Gülen. A islamic guy who pulls a lot of strings in turkey lately (while living in the US afaik). He was until recently an ally of Erdogan, but they got estranged. Gülen has supposedly infiltrated a lot of Turkeys government, officials and military. Thats why a lot of people dont know if the military is still a monolithic force or somewhat divided. So noone knows if this has something to do with him. Hes the bogeyman in the background, the big unknown.

Personally.....i somewhat doubt that he and his movement has something to do with it. Occams razor tells me...kinda *waves hands around*

Ceterum censeo, religionem delendam esse

Yeah, that should be it.


Now, important thing is how much of the army and the general population will support this development and how strong is Erdogan's support.

It can go down as a successful coup with Erdogan stepping down or it can turn into a bloodshed.
