What's going on in Turkey?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Seems like a possible Military coup to topple Erdogan's "democratic government".

  • Coup attempt by parts of Turkish military against Erdogan
  • PM Yildirim: Nothing will harm Turkish democracy
  • Low flying jets and gunfire heard in Turkish capital
  • Both of Istanbul's bridges across the Bosphorus closed

Seems like a bad idea unless you got the Russians, or Americans backing you.

Erdowan is destroying what Ataturk created.

The only way I ever won vs. the Byzantines in EUIV was to block the shit out of that strait.

Im surprised a military coup didnt happen years earlier.

This has come too late and apparently way too weak.

Erdogan will use this to push his new constitution again and may end up the biggest beneficiary from this.

Lol thousands of judges removed already the next day after the coup.
A coup which makes 0 sense in terms of actions taken.

Conspiracy theories always make more sense in the middle east.
