Erdogan, budding thugocrat, says Army Is Couping Me!!!!!!
Usually when a thugocrat starts yelling that, he’s going to crack down while I say, “I wish”.
Turkey’s PM has denounced an “illegal action” by a military “group”, with bridges closed in Istanbul and aircraft flying low over the capital, Ankara.
Binali Yildirim (Turkish Prime Minister V) said the military action was not authorised but it was not a coup. He said that the government remained in charge.
Traffic has been stopped from crossing both the Bosphorus and Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridges in Istanbul.
There are reports of gunshots in the capital Ankara.
Tanks are also said to be stationed outside Istanbul airport.
Hmmm, that’s one side.
The side I know I don’t trust.
This is the side I don’t know if I trust.
Turkish military claims to have overthrown Erdogan and taken control of country
In a statement, the Turkish military says the rule of law must remain the priority.
State TV TRT reportedly off the air.
Recall, the military is tasked with keeping Islamist assholes from taking over.
So maybe someone else, besides freaking France,
is.. could be fighting back.
