188 arrest warrants issued for members of Turkey’s supreme courts www.rt.com...

RT_com 8m8 minutes ago
MORE: Earlier on Saturday, Turkish authorities relieved 2,745 judges of duty on.rt.com...

If there is ongoing coup right now, it is the coup of Erdogan and his team against the constitutional order in the founded by Kemal Atatürk secular Turkey.

Whatever the motivations and justification of the military were, that I do not share, what we have right now is emboldened Erdogan who takes full advantage, forgetting any promises of amnesty given to CNN and possibly directly to the coupists who surrendered quite easily. The world and the region soon will see the rise of a monster that will hardly be quelled if at all by NATO membership of Turkey. Perhaps war with Russia? One can only guess, having in mind bloody centuries behind and ambitions for mega Turkey that no other NATO country have.

Good luck to them if they start any future conflict with Russia because Putin is just raring to take a bite out that big Turkish apple.

And to be honest, NATO country or not i really don't wish to see the other member nations being brought in to a conflict because of Turkish ambitions, or should i say because of Erdoğan's ambitions.

I think its also safe to say any hope of them joining the EU anytime soon just went right out the window.

I imagine a rash of assassination attempts against E will soon be forthcoming.

So is the coup put down or are we seeing the "possible uprisings" Erdogan warned about.

Reports that power has just been cut to U.S. Air Base.

Access to air base housing US nukes in Turkey blocked, power cut off – consulate

"Local authorities are denying movements on to and off of Incirlik Air Base. The power there has also been cut," the US consulate in Adana said in a message.

"Please avoid the air base until normal operations have been restored," it added. No further details were provided.

According to CNN, airspace over the area has also been closed and power to the facility has been cut.

What if NATO country attacks another NATO country?



The US president would throw his hands up in the air and say 'We give up'.

We just want to be 'friends'.

The angry mobs beheading the soldiers means the pro-coup people are going to fight to the death. Why surrender just to be decapitated. This has become a far more bloody affair.


Wait.

Soldiers were actually getting beheaded ?

They don't exactly seem to be the most stable of nations at the best of times. All one to me all the same as my own nation voted for brexit. There part of NATO through and the idea of a NATO nation having numerous military coups scares the crap out of me to be honest.

No harm to the Turkish people, i hope Erdogan plays nice but chance would be a fine thing indeed.

Hey people ?

Remember when Erdogan and his people said it was only a 'small' coup.

Fired over 2,745 judges.

Almost over 3000 military personnel have been 'detained'.

townhall.com...



Still, Erdogan acknowledged another coup attempt could occur at any time.


townhall.com...

The Turkey false flag was nothing more than a consolidation of power.

Full blown Hitleresque.

Does anyone know if power is still out at our air base?

I didn't see any further updates on the US Embassy's Twitter page. What is being done (if anything) to protect our nukes there?

Those things will be sealed up good and tight.

Probably changing/rescinding the launch codes as we speak.

If im correct they will pretty much become useless if someone tampers with them.

Still one could make a dirty bomb out the materials.

That's good, but thats a lot of weapons grade material if it fell into the wrong hands. If that ever transpires, hope not.

I seem to remember someone else claiming there was talk on Twitter regrading a dirty bomb being in play.

Could do a lot of damage with such a thing. Don't think they would ever be allowed to get near the nukes all the same when there acting the way they are, certainly hope not.
