It sounds like a coup in progress... Turkey's current government leaders have been detained (by who, not sure - hopefully not the TERRORISTS but that would fit the narrative, wouldn't it? - or were their leaders already terrorists? New terrorists taking over from the old ones? I can't keep up!)

Rumors Putin cahooting with Turkish General.

Erdogen's time may be up.


I wondered if there was any Russian connection.

I guess that sort of kills the idea of a peaceful faction seizing power.


From my understanding the Turkish military is highly nationalistic and secular in nature. The PM is just the opposite and aside from supporting ISIS his greatest mistake was having Russian fighter jets shot down.

I'm only making a guess here but it wouldn't surprise me if Russia made a deal with a very nationalistic General to assist in the coup. Who really knows though.....but it does seem Russia's mouthpiece RT broke the story. Worth considering.

So long as Russian special forces dont turn up......

That would create a NATO # fest no one needs.

Keep to Ukraine.

What terrorists dude?? ISIS? The ones Erdogan has been protecting, financing and supporting? How ironic (but highly improbable) would that be?

I just wish we knew something about which group(s) are carrying out this coup d'etat.

Will this become another power vacuum, like in Iraq?

Hope my friends are ok...

He was put in place by Erdogan so that's no surprise, he's basically just a government yes man.

Oliver North is on FOX now. Didn't take long to get him lined up now did it? hmmmmm

If the coup fails, it was a damn good shot across the bow to Erdogan. If it is a success, watch a "global" puppet take charge.

Perhaps you should look into some of the modern history of Turkey for precedent before opining. If you had, you'd have known that this has happened in Turkey before when religious zealots gain too much power. A secular military steps in and removes them. Given Erdogan's rhetoric and actions it should not come as a surprise. That being said however, this time could be different and it is within the realm of possibility that Erdogan's purge of the military put generals more radical than himself in positions of enough power to replace him.

Time will surely tell.

This wouldn't have made the military happy.

And it should come as no surprise to anyone that the corporate media in the US have attempted to obscure the actual content of the conversations in their limited reporting on the subject. Where the head of Turkish intelligence says he will order his men to launch rockets at Turkish targets from within Syria, the BBC portrays this as undefined “military operations.” When the Turkish Ambassador stresses that any attack on the tomb of Suleyman Shah would have to be perpetrated by Turkish agents and made to look like an Al-Qaeda attack, Reuters calls this a plan to “secure” the tomb. When the Turkish Foreign Minister points out that Prime Minister Erdogan sees any such attack as an “opportunity” for Turkey to strike, The Wall Street Journal portrays this as “taking the threat of radical groups in Syria seriously.” The disconnect between what the officials are actually talking about and the way it is being described is striking.
