At least some of it's true. It's all over the news. It's pretty alarming.

Mods can delete my thread. I didn't see this one.

Bosporus bridge has been blocked. Erdogan was just refused landing rights in Istanbul and is seeking asylum in Germany. Not good news for our anti-ISIS mission out of Incirlik Air Base. Crazy stuff going on. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016...rd-in-ankara1/

Latest report: Forty to fifty soldiers just closed down the national news center, seized all the medias' phones and told everybody to go home. Social media is reportedly shut down.

All will be good... Erdogan is like a little dictator covered behind a "democracy".... Many things in Turkey are not ok which should be standard to a modern world....

There are good coups and bad coups. The secular military ousting the Islamic POS President? Good coup.

This. The Turkish military stages a coup about every 10-15 years on behalf of secular democracy in Turkey. It's almost an institutionalized part of their system of checks and balances, and what keeps Turkey from becoming an Islamofascist state. It bodes well for the fight against Daesh and general stability in the middle east.

Shocking considering Merkel never met a refugee she didn't let in.

I'm glad their military didn't just stand there and watch their country turn into an Islamic state

So I guess the Broncos signing Von and Brady finally admitting to cheating weren't the only coups today. ^5

I would take all media reports as unconfirmed and potential wrong at this point.

That's a stretch. Last time Erdogan came to the us Obama refused to meet with him.
