    What the heck?

    What's going on down there? Is everything alright for our Turkish friends?

    Just heard the news and couldn't believe what I am hearing. What do you think about this?

    Might this be Erdogan trying to show the people the he needs to be in full control of the country?
    Like, just to get his all power in his hands?
    Would remind me how the Nazi's got to power when they burned down the Reichstag in 1933.
    Yes, there you go, Godwin's Law and conspiracy theories in just one sentence.

    Nothing confirmed yet. I've also heard that on a german news channel. They classified this as 'unsupported news'. In other words - maybe, maybe not.

    It's Erdogan's perfect chance to rally all power behind him.

    Conspiracy channels will have a nervous breakdown in the next weeks roflmao

    How is situation in Turkey now?

    According to reports on german news channels there still are some shootouts in the bigger cities. Does anyone of you live in Ankara or Istanbul and what are news in Turkey reporting now that government has control over them again?

    Well as a fellow Turkish i am fine but starting from thus morning like nearly 150 generals 1000 majors are all arrested and im surprized. Because if all of them were interested in this coup why there were only 2000 soldiers trying this. And Erdogan is trying to get a presidential system ( which is modern dictatorship ) and with this failed coup he strongen his hand. He and his accomplishes they gained a huge part of the nation to themselves.

    One think i was very sad about was our idiot fucked up people (which is like %35-50 of population) to lynch surrendered soldiers who only followed orders. Alot of them had no idea about the coup and they all say they just followed the orders they are given. And now a lot of them will be judged as a traitor to this country.

    Its safe to say lads this country is fucked up big.:frown:

    There was prevented from a civilian war but it still is showing not a very advanced and democstric country.
    Most paceful military coup was in spain the 23rd of febrary 1981 with 0 kills
