Another Turkey Coup

Streets of Ankara Turkey

When this news hit the wire the info was weak, claiming Facebook and Twitter services were blocked in Ankara the capital of Turkey.  Authorities have closed the two Bosporus bridges in Istanbul, tanks have been posted outside Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport and military jets along with helicopters fly over the area.

This was only a matter of time because the government was involved with ISIS funding, murdering Kurds and the good people of Turkey wanted nothing to do with it. The military has taken over the police removing their weapons and President Recep Erdogan is on vacation in the southern Turkish resort town of Marmaris and calls out to the people of Turkey via his phone saying the coup backers will not succeed.  NBC News reported that Erdogan's aircraft has been denied permission to land in Istanbul, citing a source in the US military.  The report claims that the Turkish president is seeking asylum in Germany.

(Update)  Erdogan's plane has been circling over Turkey and reports of him landing at Ataturk Airport, with unconfirmed explosions coming from the airport as military aircraft flying overhead. (all unfolding)

The Turkish military announced it was seizing power in the country “to protect the democratic order and to maintain human rights.”
