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

This coup's defeat means Erdogan can breast-beat to his heart's content.

But at least now we know where the most of the population stands.

Would you care to expand on that or it just seemed like an appropriate slogan to post?

Greece has already arrested a number of fleeing Turkish soldiers. An interesting addition to the flood of refugees...

Still looking for a more detailed, less biased source of info. The news is almost comical when crazy things are happening and they're rushing to get the story out, knowing full well they don't have the facts.

RE: Breaking News: Turkish Army Launches Military Coup Against Erdogan's Government!
I am not one for conspiracy theories, but it sure smells like Erdogan knew about this ahead of time. 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.

RE: Breaking News: Turkish Army Launches Military Coup Against Erdogan's Government!
Good news is, life is getting back to normal and order has been restored.
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.

It is being reported in the news that the Turkish ministry of justice has suspended almost 3000 judges.
