It is not dying, they just took over CNN Turk which was on live as it was happening. Also the military is bombing the parliment.

60 dead and 745 arrests.

All the local travel agencies are pulling all of their guests out of turkey and the foreign ministry has changed it recommendation. So they have essentially just fucked their entire tourist industry for the foreseeable future. I wouldn't be surprised if they end up like Egypt.... empty.

So that is where the pressure were coming to Erdogan. It is all economic decline due to Russian embargo. Lol a NATO, some members they have.

I love how the turks diaspora is out in force piping it down on social media. A lot of the posts reads like the North Korean news.

Since Friday's attempted coup:

6,000 military personnel have been arrested, with more than two dozen generals awaiting trial
9,000 police officers have been sacked
Almost 3,000 judges have been suspended
More than 15,000 education staff in Turkey have been suspended
More than 1,500 university deans have also been ordered to resign
the licences of 21,000 teachers working at private institutions revoked.
More than 250 staff in Mr Yildirim's office have been removed
Turkey's media regulation body on Tuesday also revoked the licenses of 24 radio and TV channels accused of links to Mr Gulen.
The country's Religious Affairs Directorate has banned religious funerals for supporters of the attempted coup, the Anadolu news agency reported.

As per BBC: "Meanwhile it has emerged that the army first received intelligence a coup was under way at 16:00 local time (13:00 GMT) on Friday, hours before a rogue faction deployed tanks and targeted key infrastructure."

It wasn't a set up. Take any conspiracy theory talk elsewhere. 

 

Taking advantage of a botched coup to purge the judiciary and military of enemies does not in any way point to a conspiracy. 

 

For fuck's sake.

Agreed.

Heard a rumor that the Armenians are agitating again, and given the state of the army at the moment and the Kurds rebelling it wouldn't bode well for the internal cohesion in turkey. Your thoughts?

U.S.-Backed ‘Moderate’ Rebels Behead a Child Near Aleppo

Not sure this is true , because it makes no sense at all (was this a child-prostitute?).

P.S. Sometimes I am wondering if using bio-weapons would be more merciful way rather than this protracted death that awaits tens of thousands in that place long forsaken by any humanity.

The Turkish government has supposedly made an official request for extradition of a pro-coup agitator based in the US. Not sure how this will play out but this seems to be getting out of hand.
