Military sees themselves as the True Stewards of Turkey, and Erdogan has been going off the rails.90+ dead.
1200 military personel detained.
okay Praktik, WTF was this ?
edit ... some are likening this to what would happen if enough people in the US simply said they have had enough of the current regime, and pushed back hard.
Careful what you wish for. Maybe they win and then push Erdogan out and become repressive against any threats to their power.I wish they were successful. Erdogan is a bad dude.
The Turks I know generally hold their fellow citizens in contempt, with more than a few commenting that they are sheep who have a need to believe what the government and government-controlled media say. Perhaps a bit harsh but it does seem to be playing out that way. Plus they aren't the only democratic country that has danced with the idea of a strongman in power, recently.What will Turkish citizens think about exchanging a democratically elected cunt for an array of authoritarian military leaders?
