Was the coup being cooridinated out of the US HQ at Incirlik?

No, and if you look you can see that...this coup was done by a small group that was probably told the people and the military would help with the coup only to find out otherwise.

And had the US been behind this Turkey would not have to worry about their president after that and he would be replaced, but since that hasn't happened the US isn't behind this...nor do they have a reason to be as Turkey is an ally of the US.

Turkish Labor Minister Süleyman Soylu claimed that Washington is behind the attempted coup in Turkey

"The instigator of this coup is United States."

Yeah and the idiot we have in the white house has yet another test, turkey wants a U.S. Imam living in P.A. His fear to act has constantly been putting him closer and closer in check. Turkey is basically blaming the United States for the coup. This dope.

Oh and unfortunately for him, United States IS a world power, contrary to what he believes. He should be mayor of a small town in Hawaii, not the Commander in Chief of the United States of America.

So Iam I right in thinking that what this article is saying is, that they have nukes under their control that belong to the US?

A serious coups first strategy would be to kill the existing power structure, in fact take all the high ranking officials out, by assassination and or arrest, meaning ones that would change allegiance without much persuasion. As this hasn't happened and their is a lot of controversy around the present regime making a profit from the IS I think it smells and gives the regime an excuse to entrench itself, with permanent marshal law.

No. They're under US control, but can be put on Turkish aircraft that have been modified to carry them.

Really sputnik news the russian's newest propaganda media outlet...good one they also bled the US for their( russian ) meddling in Ukraine.

Do you really think if the US were behind this they would have not taken the president out and this would have been done right?

Also if the US was behind this what is their end game as they don't remove those who are allies.
Especially when they are letting us use their base to fight ISIS.

And just because one person in the government wamts to point a finger that doesn't mean the whole government agrees with him now does it?

Incirlic is may be the single worst news for the international community. Hope it will develop better and the nukes won't end up in the hands of a rising dictator.

Other news however are no less troubling for the way of the rising dictatorship. Today Erdogan's regime fired 15,000 TEACHERS. Seems we have indeed the rise of a totalitarian regime comparable to the failed one of Saddam Hussein or even more dangerous, taking into account Turkey is bigger and closer to Europe, and NATO member. Europe and NATO should think not only twice, but rethink their entire strategy to a failed country as big as Germany, whether they should still rely on Turkey as their southern bastion. Erdogan's Turkey becomes part of the problem, not part of the solution.

As Kerry allegedly said (don't know if confirmed or not), Turkey may be made exit NATO. IMO NATO will be more secure without that rising dictatorship. If there is a way for speedy removal of the US nukes. Well may be strategically other solutions will be sought, to look for the entire Turkey to stay where it were years ago...Well, if it is no more possible, then?
What we have as of today, it is an ever increased TERROR against common people, intellectuals, who are impossible all of them to have participated in any coup, even if they wanted to. Textbook of history shows Hitler doing pretty much the same with the people who thought different.

If that trend continues, and for now it continues on full gear, we will face a new Nazi regime in 21st century standing with one leg on the European continent. Who needs that? Some anti-Russian people say, Putin. I don't think that Mr Putin needs a regime like that to be his ally.

Isn't it better the Great Powers Russia included to sit down and decide the problem that rose for Europe with the fall of the Byzantium empire, the Eastern Roman Empire, under the Ottoman invasion in 1453. Without going further in history or making any unfounded projections of future Constantinople, it is not unfair to say that today's Turkey regime becomes a danger for everyone in Europe and America, as well as for its own 80 mln citizens. The process unfolded too fast in DAYS. Who can count on any word of the Turkish regime that will become better after it becomes worse? They may pour thru their borders millions migrants as human weapon and punish Europe without giving a shot. Europe has enough problems without that. So is America.
