Yea I was ignorantly cheering for Erdogan dethroning when I first heard and imagined this, but realistically whatever solution restores peace and stability to Turkey is probably best. Who knows? Not me.

That's what I was trying to imply. In order from most favorable to least favorable.

- Never had Erdogan.
- Had Erdogan, but successful coup
- Had Erdogan, no coup attempt.
- Had Erdogan, unsuccessful coup attempt.

Yeah a failed coup + surviving fascist ruler = you're gonna have a bad time.

Wonder which minority or 'undesirable' group is gonna catch the blame and retaliation...
Safe bet is probably the kurds but who knows.

Pretty sure that exact scenario happened in iraq, where there was an attempted assassination on Saddam and he used it as one excuse to try and exterminate the kurds as well.

They are beating soldiers in the street, lynching them, the government is taking their clothes (uniforms) and sending them naked into the street.

Democracy and order has been restored.

Sounds very much like it was a false flag coup so Erdogan can consolidate power.

I have a Turkish friend in Istanbul who has left some seriously disturbing messages on his FB.

Definitely worried.
