Here's the vid of the low flying (possible) F-16:
twitter.com...


Flying a jet that low at night is suicidal. Unless its on approach to an airport.

The Police will be wise to stand down - this is NATO's largest Army we're talking about here, more than capable of annihilating the Police.

Well a coup is not going to look good for that EU membership bid.

I wonder if the Turkish military is trying to prevent another terrorist attack in Turkey.

Battening down the hatches so to speak. Since obviously Erdogan and the legislature aren't capable of protecting public safety. The military has the resources and the ability to prevent further terrorist attacks in Turkey and the truck in France recently might have been motivation enough for the coup leaders to take action.

Well they choose the right day to get some international support.
On the other hand Erdogan was trying to be the good guy lately which is a bit confusing. Let's hope for the best.

The EU will take another truck filled with grenades running down French kids bend over and like it. The Turkish military might not go so easily with another attack on Turkish soil.

Come to think of it my Mrs has family out there on holiday right now.

This world is going to hell in a hand basket.
Peace to you also.


Thoughts going out to you my friend.
There was a celebration tonight (Same as last night in France)
All speculation so far. Loud explosion JUST HEARD, Jets screaming over SKY NEWS Live on tv.
Shots are and can be heard. The big question is "Where is the leader"
The Police and Military are killing each other. Turkey RE: Religion & Islam in Turkey. Turkey has been home to all three great revealed religions—Judaism, Christianity and Islam—for centuries. 99% of Turkey's people today are Muslim, and Turkey's history is principally that of an Islamic people, their empires, architecture, arts and literature. The current leader tried or is trying to make it more Religious.

This is just out of our hands now....
..The idiots are in charge

UN Secretary asking for peace, but nobody can find any leaders.
Russia and Europe are working together to try and help or get to know the story.
Martial Law has been declared. Also MEMBERS CLOSE TO THE USA ARE DOING THIS. Sky News just said it.
Are American Military involved here? Speculation....All we have right now
Turkey's most wanted man is in Pennsylvania USA right now

JESUS..Gun fire and SKY NEWS just stopped the stream as Gun Fire is near them.
Tanks have opened fire into the Turkish Parliament Government and Gun shots in Istanbul Airport.
This is Civil War and Martial Law. Twitter and Facebook has been closed in Turkey. This is BAD!

I think the reason why this military coup is happening, is because people are tired of how things are. So, I seriously doubt they would just go to how things were.

Let's hope this is a bright day in the turkish history, where their connections with terrorist groups stops.


Erdogans AKP nearly got the absolute majority during last winters election.
So he has some undeniable support from the populace. It's hard to say how they'll react to a coup by the predominantly secular military.


The same way they always have. Just as the Egyptians did. They move on. In both nations tehe elected leaderships popularity was in decline. The people of Turkey put a great deal of faith in the Turkish military to look out for what is best for the nation. Traditionally they have always accepted military coups as what is best. It is possible he will have a loyal groups of supporter who might resist but most of the nations will accept it, even applaud it and move on.

Not really, he'll have plenty of training, avionics and night vision. He can see perfectly well where he is going.

I mean...the world's been on fire since day one...I think people are overreacting, because it's not like we haven't already seen and experienced everything that's going on right now...

Or it might .. since their goal is to bring back democratic principles and secular rule over Islamist Sharia Law.

Probably nobody - the Turkish military is quite capable (and has a history of) doing this all by themselves.

I wish the US military would follow suit, here.

Debate here in Scotland is us asking "Is this the end of Europe due to the Muslim Lie"?
1.7 Billion Muslims on Earth, 1% of Islam is 1.7 Million people.
If ISIS had 1.7 Million radicals, WE WOULD ALL HAVE WAR IN OUR STREETS...

Every day we can expect this to get worse.
This could cause WWIII. We are on dangerous ground.
