Would this have something to do with possible orders to do with Syria by any chance that the 'brass' felt they could not carry out? Or has it to do with the 'brass' not agreeing with the muslim line the government takes? Or do the Turkish military not want to be US 'patsys'?
Any thoughts? Link to Al Jazzera news site on You Tube

This article Claims it was over a court case. The reported official stated that many officers were being held in connection to a court case stating they had ties to a plot against the government. He and his counterparts were resigning in protest to this apparent strong arm justice.


****EDIT

On further reading this plot was reportedly a False Flag operation of some sort, to instigate war with greece. More of the same if you ask me. Two "political parties" pointing fingers and calling each other liars. SSDD.

Yeah right .. that was as much a false flag operation as the last 10 times the Turkish military threw over the government. It's kind of a tradition there .. the military watches out that the government doesn't get all too islamistic .. same old story, just nowadays the Generals rather step down instead of sending tanks to the parliament.

Aha, thanks for the history guys. So I take it this is not going to help Turkeys application to join the EU then?
Also, not being au fait with military procedure, but if the 'Chiefs' have resigned, what happens to the 'indians' so to speak?

Syria? .. I thought the Government didn't want us talking about Syria? We are only opposed to some dictators. Others are ok.

That would make more sense.. the Turkish Constitution allows the Army to remove civilian leaders for what ever reason.. seems like the civilians are trying to fight back. (Which, is NOT a good thing since they are usually extreme Muslims and the Turkish Army is very progressive, albeit still very violent)
