Beginning to Think the Coup in Turkey was a False Flag Event

an event designed to leave Erdogan in absolute control. Now he has free hand to eliminate and Gulen and Kemalists in the officer Corps if he wants.

Maybe I'm channeling Alex Jones, but this smells an awful lot like a 'real' event.

3. Hands-up right after the President's speech?!?!

This is seeming more and more fishy by the minute.

2. I am watching the military with their hands up surrendering to civilians. So much for

needing that armed well regulated militia. I didn't see any civilians carrying guns.

6. that's the consensus of most of the 'experts' at CNN and msnbc

 

amazing how they all seemed to reach that conclusion at the same time......not sure what time, cause I was flipping back and forth, but that's the media CW on those two channels, as of about 2 hours ago.

7. There were quite a few people killed

and wounded in the so-called "false flag" event.

It's interesting how Western media seem to speculate about the same thing at more or less the same time. The "collective mind" of the M$M = how can we best milk this situation to gin up ratings rather than to provide any actual information.

Here's one timeline: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/07/turkey-timeline-coup-attempt-unfolded-160716004455515.html

I believe that the coup attempt was real. It was just very badly planned and implemented. Erdogan had enough support to do what he wanted even before the coup.

But I'm not at all liking the wholesale dismissal of judges that has just taken place.

8. Round-up of Erdogan opposition in positions of power underway- Stop 1 the Courts

You have to get that pesky Supreme Court out of the way for a total take-over apparently...

Turkish prosecutors have issued arrest warrants for 140 Constitutional Court members and 48 members of the Council of State in the wake of Friday night’s attempted coup. Ten arrests have already been made, local media reported.
The ten jurists detained were all members of the Council of State, which is Turkey’s top administrative court, NTV broadcaster reported.

12. I would really, really like to think that's the case... However, there

seems to be an ongoing evil streak in this man...

11. A friend told me that last night: He works in TV. Didn't buy it at all.

Which is good news because we don't want instability there.
