What the fuck? I'm watching my local news on ABC and they're saying there may be ties to the United States. Huh Angry Blink

If I'm not mistaken, hasn't the military performed many coup's in the past to maintain it's constitution against politicians that stray too far?

Some powerful friend of the Turkish President whom they think is "really" calling the shots over there, who lives here in the USA but calls the shots, according to what I saw.

Also, the USA is preparing to defend its strategic airbase there, and I think some are trying to use that to accuse us of being involved somehow. It will be a major loss to our strategic presence in the region if we cannot maintain our heavy aircraft (AWACS, transports, and tankers, mostly) based there.

Nope, he's on the other side of the state. Someone who lived in Philadelphia or DC would be far closer.

Democratically elected or not, that leadership represents something that will bite us hard in the butt, in years to come, mark my word. They have been systematically dismantling everything secular/progressive about that country... and now it's about to get a lot worse.

They just handed a blank check to the fundamentalists in that government. Undecided

Rocket,

Agreed. The only winners in this will be the UK Brexiteers. Turkey's eye on EU membership was one of their main arguments for getting out.

Looks like the EU has reached high water mark for new members, and the issue going forwards will be border control. Another win for the right wing parties in EU member countries.
