The Turkish military are currently staging a coup against President Erdogan, claiming that they have overthrown Erdogan and have taken over Turkey. http://www.telegraph.co.uk...

Good. Erdogan is worthless and Turkey has become Islamist.

I wish them success. Erdogan persecutes his critics, silences the independent journalists, censors the media, including internet. Not to mention persecution of the Kurds.
He wished to turn his countenance from the smoldering rubble, but saw from amidst the embers that a few chaff would not burn away. To these, he stared into the eye of God sneering, and called them, 'Promethean.'

Unfortunately the coup failed and now Erdogan is going full dictator mode, removing about 3000 judges, detained thousands of coup participants in the streets, and surrounded and shut down a US military base that contains nuclear weapons.

That's the reason why Erdogan was ousted in the first place.
