The Turkey Coup and its consequences
In the past 24 hours,
a group of high ranking officers in the Turkish army attempted to depose
president Erdogan and take power in Turkey for the purpose of restoring secular
The coup was unsuccessful.
There are people who, from their western idiot point of
view, will say that violence shouldn’t be used to attain political goals.
If you’re one of those people, you’re a moron.
Violence has always been used to attain political goals, because violence is
the only thing governments fear. And it
There are people who believe that Erdogan was democratically
elected and therefore he should not have been attacked. I’ve seen none of these
people disapproving of the coup in Ukraine.
You see little chickens, democracy is a dangerous toy,
because not everybody who votes will agree with you. Also, like Erdogan did, it’s
a lot easier to be “democratically
elected “ if you imprison journalists who disagree with you, shoot opponents
and create a climate of fear.
But only an idiot would celebrate the failure of
the coup. It means that Erdogan will now purge with impunity any disagreeing
elements within his army, and turn Turkey even more into a terrorist theocratic
Add to that an intense campaign of the country’s main religion to support you
and bam, you will get barely elected, just like Erdogan did a few months back.
But only an idiot would have thought that election was anything but democratic.
For a few years now, Erdogan has worked very hard to take Turkey away from its
secular legacy out in place by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and remake it into an Islamic
state. Erdogan created a virtue police
similar to those of Saudi and Iran, and women in Turkey have seen their
Add to that Erdogan’s known support and cooperation with ISIS and the result is
obvious- Turkey was being hijacked in a direction it shouldn’t be going.
Of course the Turkish military tried a coup. It’s what they do, because in Turkey,
a vast and complex country that is very neatly divided in the middle between
westernised city people and uneducated Anatolian peasants who have no problem killing
their daughters for talking to a strange boy, the military is the symbol and
keeper of democracy.
However, Turkey is also a crucial NATO ally. There are quite a lot of NATO military bases
in Turkey, and it should have been obvious to the organizers that the US wouldn’t
want any changes made to their main SE ally.
In the big islamization swoop of the Middle
East that the USA under Obama has been performing for the past 8 years, the
danger of Turkey becoming a secular democracy and starting to ask uncomfortable
questions couldn’t possibly be tolerated.
The Turkish military tried to appeal to people’s love for democracy- but they
couldn’t compete with the call to arms from each and every fucking mosque in
The tyrant was well prepared, and probably warned in advance.
And let us not forget that the EU paid him to win his elections, paid him to
continue to oppress the Kurds and his own people. Was he grateful? No, he
openly threatened that if he didn’t get more money he’d unleash millions of
refugees onto Europe unless his conditions were met.
The results of this coup so far are:
- - 192 dead
- - 1,400+ injured
- - 3,000+ soldiers arrested
- - 2,700+ Judges arrested
- - #US airbase closed
Some people claim the coup was a set up to give Erdogan more power- but in truth Erdogan was already doing whatever he wanted. He didn't per se NEED a pretext for a purge.
WE don't have enough information yet, but whatever the results, they won't be good.
