Oh I couldn't agree more! But... don't US politicians have some sort of law that protects them from being held responsible for, say, a war crime? Maybe I'm just making this up.

Thought about that too, but that report was from april 14th, first i thought it was from yesterday...


They are frustrated. I'm sure some bureaucratic-free planning and Turkish military has no problems in Raqqa.

This is reminiscent of the coup in Turkey in the early 80's. The military had enough of the political violence in the 70's, which had led to many killings. I assume the Kurdish/Turkish civil war, the recent terrorist attack, has led to these actions.

to Nikola014, ATS is "kaputt" again, quoting didn´t work...
"Maybe...this is happening because Turkey was getting back together with Russia? And someone wants to punish them...

I mean, just a thought...we're on a conspiracy site after all"

Or Erdogan just took it too far, with arresting reporters, holding german NATO soldiers almost as hostages in turkey/Incirlik, with supporting the "IS" and doing deals with them, and all that...

I'm more interested in America's response.


Obama has been apprised of the situation


Why should Obama get a "hard on" over this?

Just asking

""Update - #Turkey's PM says security forces will "retaliate in kind" and "everything necessary will be done even if that means fatalities""

If Erdogan can muster enough support this means civil war

I agree. Can you imagine having the world's largest terrorist group headquartered 35 miles from your border and watching your President sit on his hands. I think France pushed these people over the edge.

Nice!!

This brings Assad one step closer to defeating terrorists in the Syrian civil war!

Let's hope Erdogan accepts his defeat with grace, and just leaves, instead of deciding take down his whole country down with him.

Who am I kidding, Erdogan is sick...who knows what's he capable off...

Yes, Erdogan has a lot of support from the people and a lot of hate as well, Right now Erdogan has come through Skype in a local channel asking people to come outside and protest. Erdogan is talking to a local TV channel, State TV channel has already been taken over by the military.

Dictators rarely give up power that easily.

Although there was one dictator of Haiti who one day, for no reason, just up and left the country and never came back, leaving it leaderless. Then Papa Doc came to power. Fun time was by all.

When you have to FaceTime from a bathroom.... the message "we will prevail" just doesn't seem to carry much weight.

Maybe it's me

It's probably going to get a whole lot worse in this region (region being Europe)

I think his supporters will be quite fanatical. Namely the police and intelligence agencies which is where his power base lies. Hopefully the military was smart enough to take them out of the picture before launching the coup.

There were reports of military helicopters firing on the Intelligence headquarters in Ankara.
