No need to be a **** about it
No kidding. It's so reminiscent of the Nazi rise to absolute power it's not even funny. Just replace Gülen with Communists. They even one-upped them (hypothetically of course - it could also be real) by staging an actual coup attempt, rather than claiming one was about to happen as evidenced by an arson attack.Wellenbrecher said:They're really pushing hard on the Gülen narrative aren't they?
Fewer than I expected, to be honest. Still, a big shame.The Bowman said:161 killed, 1440 wounded, and 2839 detained as of yet (according to official data).
It's similar to how the US and the UK were so adamant about Saddam's WMDs. Of course they knew he had them, or should have them, they* sold them to him in the first placeLux said:I, too, find it atrociously ironic that Erdogan asked the people to resist using mass messaging that he has been so fond of blocking and banning.
Yes true. The country's in an incredible mood today, "we won't be satisfied until every single Gulenist is hanged". I think for a few days it's more prudent to not speak too much on this issue.Wellenbrecher said:They're really pushing hard on the Gülen narrative aren't they?
A Turkish military helicopter has landed in northern Greece where its crew has requested political asylum.

Greece’s defence ministry has confirmed seven military personnel and one civilian landed in a Blackhawk military helicopter in Alexandroupoli and requested asylum.
Upon arrival the eight crew members were arrested for illegal entry to the country.

The Turkish government has indirectly accused exiled Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen of being behind the coup.
As we told you three hours ago, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said any country that would "stand by" Mr Gulen "won't be a friend of Turkey and will be considered at war with Turkey".
Mr Gulen lives in self-imposed exile in the United States.
