    Turkey seems to have two choices, kill Erdogan or have purges like Stalin had after this.

    Too early to tell, but Alhamdulillah the situation is looking better.

    Also, very interesting to see how many people on this forum advocate democracy yet are supporting the coup.
    Yep.
    the hypocrisy is just blatant and in the open.

    I am a bigger fan of secularism than democracy, so I do hope that Erdogan goes down.

    "Islamists", not "Muslims". Sadat, ex president of Egypt, was Muslim and he started the peace treaty with Israel after a coup, so it sometimes works good.

    New reports, an Army helicopter has killed 17 police officers at the Police Special Forces HQ outside Ankara.

    The claims by some loyalist commanders that this is a tiny faction is simply not credible. To undertake an operation of this magnitude requires a lot of logistics, a lot of officers to be involved. If the Army was so solidly behind Erdogan then this wouldn't have happened in the first place

    Most of it was not. you can see it by citizens now flooding into national TV HQ which coup military occupied until now. People took it back. It was the "will" of fooled people. People are manipulated and fooled by Erdogan's propoganda. Coups are only giving Erdogan and their ideology more and more propoganda power.

    Nope, normal practicing Muslims*

    Call them what you want in an attempt to disassociate them from their religion but I know my religion better than you thanks.

    The difference being Sisi had/has ruthless security personnel that won't think twice about using force to subdue the will of the people.
    While the Turkish military (and that is very commendable) are not so eager to kill their people. You can literally watch on news the personnel retreating when facing the mass protests rather than firing on their people.
