Presidential sources say: “This is an attack against Turkish democracy. A group within the armed forces has made an attempt to overthrow the democratically elected government outside the chain of command.

“The statement made on behalf of the Armed Forces wasn’t authorised by the military command. We urge the world to stand in solidarity with the Turkish people.”

    False flag coup?

    • Men Scryfa says:

      Having looked at it again in the light of day I am with you. There is a good chance that this is a false flag all with the intention of consolidating power in the hands of Erdogan so then he can do to Turkey and the Region what International Jewry demands.

    • UglyTruth says:

      Unlikely that it’s a false flag run by Erdogan because of the geopolitical balance of power shifting in Assad’s favour with Kerry no longer pushing for Assad’s removal.

      IMO the attempted coup was the best alternative path for Zionist ambition in Syria.

  2. Men Scryfa says:

    Quite a reflection on Turkey and the Turkish people that you have the army trying to get into power one bunch of Crypto-Jews while the people come out to show mass support for Erdogan just another Satanist.

    Whent the Real Brits got the chance they slapped all of the sickos in the face

    BREXIT.

    Now we are going to find out if the so-called Tories (not much conservation of culture or ethnicity in Eastern Britain these days…lol) have anything real left.

    D-Day for the Conservative Partei

    lol !

  3. NPP says:

    Forget the crypto-Jew / Satanist business. It is just business and power.

    Erdogan creates theatre. He wants to remove the fundations of Ataturk’s secular republic and create a Caliphate/Otoman style retro system.

    Turk friends are sad, they say, “… we are ISIS…”
    I tell them so are we! We pay for it too.
    The immams were calling from the mosque all night to encourage AKP/religious supporters to the street.

    The BBC are clueless; no sense of deeper analysis.

    How extraordinary to think, thank goodness Putin is close by to keep tabs on these lunatics… may be he’s playing us too.

    It’s theatre. Avoid buying into the fear.

      Erdogan creates theatre. Quite this is looking like a stageshow enabling Erdogan’s “night of the long knives”

      The BBC are not clueless they are part of the problem.

      At the root of the present problems in the world … they now fortunately deceased Richard Mellon Scaife.

      His work goes on.

        By Steve Kangas (Steven Robert Esh)

        GOP cigar featured imageThe wealthy have always used many methods to accumulate wealth, but it was not until the mid-1970s that these methods coalesced into a superbly organized, cohesive and efficient machine. After 1975, it became greater than the sum of its parts, a smooth flowing organization of advocacy groups, lobbyists, think tanks, conservative foundations, and PR firms that hurtled the richest 1 percent into the stratosphere.

        The origins of this machine, interestingly enough, can be traced back to the CIA. This is not to say the machine is a formal CIA operation, complete with code name and signed documents. (Although such evidence may yet surface — and previously unthinkable domestic operations such as MK-ULTRA, CHAOS and MOCKINGBIRD show this to be a distinct possibility.) But what we do know already indicts the CIA strongly enough. Its principle creators were Irving Kristol, Paul Weyrich, William Simon, Richard Mellon Scaife, Frank Shakespeare, William F. Buckley, Jr., the Rockefeller family, and more. Almost all the machine’s creators had CIA backgrounds.

      • NPP says:

        Yes, part of the problem, but BBC are mostly clueless.

      • sovereigntea says:

        i would suggest that the BBC craftily appear to be clueless as part of their iniquitous corrosive strategy.

        It is also black comedy at its best that the Erdogan regime are whining about an attack on their democracy given that prior to the rigged elections interested parties bumped off the opposition via terrorist acts.
