Military Coup in Turkey

So much going on the last few days...

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-n...losion-8431256

Internet has been shut off.. tanks at the airport, low flying jets and helicopters.

Thoughts?

Erdogan and his Islamic agenda. The military.....isn't a fan of it.

That and he's been marginalizing the military and firing many of their leaders for his own political gain and to gain more power.

The media also hates him for supporting ISIS against Assad in Syria. Turks, in general, like him for doing things like bringing religious freedom back (i.e. prayer rooms in schools and stuff like that) and the fact that pay and inflation have improved since he took office.

Military prefers a much more authoritative approach to ruling. That's my understanding of it anyway.

From what I have read, he was elected by a large majority. So this could get ugly fast if the citizens start pushing back against the military...

They could, it wouldn't end well for them though. It'll be interesting to see what happens next.

Maybe the Russians are tired of seeing the US having so much fun staging coups around its territories and decided why not join the fun..
