Military claims they have taken over the country....Turkish PM says they are undertaking an illegal act against democracy that will not be allowed to stand.

Erdogan is on vacation at the moment.

I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner...the military views itself as Ataturk's heirs, and they hate Erdogan and his cozying up to the Islamists in his country.

Good news for a change

And maybe Merkel won't have Interpol arrest and detain Jeemie for his anti-Erdogan post if he's out of power

I had no idea.....

But then again up until yesterday afternoon my knowledge of Turkey pretty much consisted of knowing that I like it with ham, bacon, lettuce, tomato and swiss with spicy mustard in a spinach wrap at the turn......

Actually I didn't know about that cleric either.

Looks like the coup may be fizzling out...we shall see.

Failed coup is worst possible outcome for US interests. Naturally, Hopey McChange is happy about it. The idea that he would even consider extradition of a moderate Muslim to placate the Islamists is sickening and further proof that he's not serious about jihadism.

Eyeroll. The idiocy and simpleton thinking amazes once again.

The latest is that Erdogan is now blaming a Pokemon hiding in my attic.

Latest is that its a purge, with a fake or set up coup as a cover story, very Stalin-esque. This way Erdogan can brutally eliminate all opposition. Great news for all that support Jihad. Including the possibility of eliminating the Kurds who could get the Armenian treatment. With 6 months left to hope and change he better hurry. All he has to do is round them up and put them in an isolated valley. Like a giant woodstock minus the music food and water. Just a pile of bones within a few weeks. This, cop killings, France, ISIS etc: the news cycle has become insane. Hillary wants to have a shoot down no fly zone in Syria. Putin says Hillary could mean war and Im not far from a military target. That makes me very uncomfortable. Much more uncomfortable than 911. I'm convinced, Trump can't come soon enough.
