If he tries to further go after the media and democratic rights, I will blame him.


Oh he will.

This is just the beginning, really. The entire coup was in all likelihood a false flag, considering how not a single AKP MP or member of Erdogan's inner circle was harmed, and by this point he's pretty much just setting the country up to be yet another Islamist failed State.

Poor Ataturk's turning in his grave.

On the contrary, I'm sure if you'd go through this far too long a thread holding the opposite opinion might make you feel like you're all alone.

Pretty much everyone was cheering for the notion of Erdogan being removed from office. By now I've joined the mass of cynics that are of the opinion that the resulting purges are far too quick and well-organized to be a coincidence. I thus don my tinfoil tricorn and shall stand in line with the conspiracy loon battalion but the whole coup seems like one giant play to me by now.

I'd rather have them throw the region into shit zone than have Erdogan strap rocket boosters to his country and Wernher von Braun it there and damn the obstacles.

If it was, the current purges in Turkey and Erdogan's attempts to restore the death penalty would make me giddier than a whole school with a year of free ice cream.

Its entirely likely that this would have occurred. As it will do so anyway, given that's precisely the direction of travel Turkey had been in previously. What, would repression have stopped if there had been no coup? How about instability? Terror?
I used to run an alliance, and a region. Not that it matters now.
