The failed coup in Turkey is starting to smell funny.
Some are starting to suggest Erdogan orchestrated the whole thing as an excuse to crack down on civil rights. The speed with which the coup fell apart and the speed with which 1,000s of judges and attorneys are being rounded up suggests this may have been a staged event. Detaining soldiers and generals who sided against the President would be understandable. But, civil servants and attorneys? And, doing it immediately, the next day?
False flag Turkey. Last night I was hoping, that however this went, there would be reforms. I was thinking along the lines are beating back ISIS. Now, it seems things may be getting worse – a government just a tad bit less radical than ISIS trampling civil liberties.
Never, ever trust a government. They’re all coup-coup…
