Some very big things happened at lightning speed in Turkey, over the weekend. As many are now aware, there was a military coup in Turkey, that attempted to oust Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erodgan from power.
The world watched breathlessly as soldiers took up positions in Ankara, Constantinople and elsewhere, while a besieged Erdogan, who “escaped death by minutes”, assured the Turkish people that he was, in fact, okay. Millions followed a step by step breakdown of the coup on social media, and waited on pins and needles as President Erdogan gave a rousing call to all patriotic Turks everywhere to “take to the streets to secure and support Democracy,” as the coup climaxed, and ultimately failed. There was just one little problem with this whole “Hallmark, Feel Good” story…
Faking a Coup
It wasn’t true. The entire thing now appears to have been staged….and likely by none other than President Erdogan himself.
“What!? Ok Watchman, you lost me! Saying Erdogan staged the coup himself is a bridge too far!”
Not really, my friend.
You see, we now know that the “manhunt” for Erdogan was actually anything but, as both the pursuing military and their planes knew exactly where he was at all times, but did nothing.
In fact, Turkish F-16s not only knew Erdogan’s whereabouts,but literally had a target lock on Erdogan’s plane, but refused to fire on it. As you can see here, they had the plane and its entire flight pattern in real time.
Yet at the very moment they could’ve ended this man’s life with one missile, they did nothing.
Hours later, of course, Erdogan landed safely, the “rogue wing” of the army behind the uprising was easily put down by other branches of the military, and President Erdogan was given a hero’s welcome.
Voila! The reviled man became an instant sensation, like magic!
Erdogan’s regime has wasted absolutely zero time in tightening the iron fist, in the wake of the coup. He’s already rounded up thousands of folks suspected to be ‘disloyal’. How many arrests are we talking about here?
No one knows just how many people have been arrested so far, but the number of names is now at least over 20,000, that have been identified as “problematic” to the Erdogan Presidency. Now, one would’ve thought that thorough investigations and tribunals would’ve been necessary for weeks in order to ascertain the true masterminds of an operation this large.
Nope! Erdogan’s just that good! 20,000 co-conspirators, including exhaustive lists of:
Judges and justices
Are all included in it, from all walks of life. It is a very comprehensive set of ‘agitators’.
Many of these people, truth be told, were probably merely guilty of being outspoken critics of Erdogan’s tyrannical and criminal activities as president. However, now none of that matters right now. The attack has seemingly galvanized vast portions of Turkey’s populace around Erdogan, which gives him nearly cart blanche to wipe away the fiercest political opponents he has.
Oh, and brother, if you’re like me, and you feel this happenstance is just ‘too lucky’ or convenient for President Erdogan, your imagination isn’t overactive, and you’re not alone in your suspicions!
Just read what the EU commissioner Johannes Hahn has said about the whole Turkish ordeal:
“It looks at least as if something has been prepared. The lists are available, which indicates it was prepared and to be used at a certain stage. I’m very concerned. It is exactly what we feared.”
Remember, the EU is lobbying hard to bring Turkey into the Christian, European EU. EU officials want to allow millions of Turkish muslims to have unfettered access to freely travel across any and all Schengen areas in Christian Europe, and Europeans DO NO want that to happen. For EU officials to admit that Turkey’s coup(or at least, its Purge) was planned by their own president, means it looks bad, friends!
Very, very bad!
Just check out this newest headline in the great, farcical Turkish Coup of 2016!
Well, well! So, within hours of the whole coup, the officer who was intimately involved with the botched, miserable Turkish attempts to help build up ISIS and Al-Nusra, in order to oust Assad in Syria, is executed with a bullet in the neck?
Unbelievable. Truly. Erdogan must be incomparably desperate to tie up as many loose ends as he possibly can in this whole Syrian fiasco. He sees the writing on the wall:
He knows that Putin and Assad are now mopping up the last remnants of the US/Turkish/Saudi/Israeli terrorist organization known as ISIS.
He knows how far public opinion in Turkey had turned against him, and that he and his coalition and allies are very vulnerable.
He knows that his family and his son have been implicated in directly buying oil from the Islamic State, and personally propping them up.
He knows when Assad soon calls in international investigators to study every war crime perpetrated against the Syrian people, and take account of each of the countless cultural and historical treasures that were destroyed….the fingers will all point to one man:
Think I’m exaggerating?
Just check out this news, hot off the presses!
Wow! So now both the pilot and his wingman who treacherously shot down the Su-24 Russian aircraft as it flew over Syrian airspace to kill terrorists, are both arrested for being involved the coup?
My my! Anyone wanna take bets as to how long it takes for their necks to find a stray bullet lying around somewhere?
The intrigue is so deliciously concocted, that it could be the basis for a Game of Thrones episode!
While this is all a very transparent script, we must be careful, as it now means that Erdogan’s back is against the wall. To attempt such a hastily, sloppily done “coup” operation, and the following crack-down on that many opponents so quickly, means he felt his time was running out. Things will only continue to grow more desperate, as this grasping man tries to hold onto power as long as he can. As the truth continues to come out, it will only get worse.
The Erdogan crime family is ruthless and power-hungry, but they’re certainly not stupid. This planned coup was a calculated risk that Erdogan took, in order to stave off any serious risks to his control of Turkish politics, as well as tie up loose ends in his failed war on elected Syrian President, Assad. I’m sure many of those involved in the coup had no idea what they were a part of, or they would’ve never participated. After all, why risk arrest or death, if you’re only serving to further entrench the man you’re supposedly fighting?
Erdogan has been inching Turkey away from their secular constitution for quite some time now, while playing Sultan in both Anatolia and Middle East politics.
His antics of:
Staging bombings of pro-peace rallies with the PKK…
Constantly upping the conflict against the Kurdish separatists…
Consolidating Presidential power…
And actually funding ISIS (while pretending to wage war on them)…
Was all beginning to wear very, very thin in the Turkish community, and beyond.
His failed proxy war on Assad through ISIS, and the failed attempt to become the new natural gas hub for Europe was the last straw. The Turkish people were growing restless, angry, and were beginning to question Erdogan’s every action.
It was time for the ultimate political “hail mary”, and for now, Erdogan seems to have pulled it off without much difficulty.
By his thinly veiled attempt to oust himself, Erdogan has cleverly killed several birds with one stone:
He has galvanized Turkish support for himself, by painting an attack on him as an “attack on democracy”, while simultaneously enabling himself to literally make any personal enemy, any plotter, any ‘liability’, any critic, or anyone who has ever even looked sideways at him…to just vanish.
How very fortunate for him, and how very unfortunate for 75 million Turkish citizens, who will now find it all the more difficult to truly challenge his rule or power, without being unilaterally disposed of.
I’d like to end by issuing a warning to shield brothers in the US though: don’t think for one second that elected officials in Washington DC, wouldn’t try something similar, if they too felt their power was threatened, as he did.
These criminal cabal families always look after #1: themselves. Their time will come, though.
