Just another sign of Turkey's descent into authoritarianism.

It's a good thing Erdoğan is on holiday.

Turkey would be better off as a Stratocracy.

It's a dumb idea, and I imagine it will probably fail.

I think the military coup is illegal and runs counter to Turkey's established and legitimate constitution. Attempting to overthrow the legitimate democratically-elected government of a country is an astonishing crime, one worthy of an immediate and powerful response from other nations, and it should be punished.

@Juan_Pablo_4_hillary 'legitimate democratically-elected government' debatable.

It looks like the Coup failed so it doesn't really matter now.

It looks like Erdoğan is going to use this to gain more power.

Ataturk would have been disappointed in modern day Turkey.
