Excerpt:

Turkey’s military said on Friday it had seized power, but the prime minister said the attempted coup would be put down.

If successful, the overthrow of President Tayyip Erdogan, who has ruled Turkey since 2003, would amount to one of the biggest shifts in power in the Middle East in years.

Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said the elected government remained in office. There was no immediate word from Erdogan. The Turkish sister channel of CNN said he was “safe”.

The armed forces had taken power in the country to protect the democratic order and to maintain human rights, the military said in a statement sent by email and reported on Turkish TV channels. All of Turkey’s existing foreign relations would be maintained and the rule of law would remain the priority, it said.

  1. A difficult situation. The coup participants did not have a response to the Erdogan loyalists in the population. Their heart was not in the fight to push past their countrymen to secure the position they sought.

    Dedicating our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor may be a one-way ticket. Remember the Alamo!

  2. Don’t be surprised if evidence points this being staged Erdogan himself. The only person benefiting from this is Erdogan.
