    Like literally you can go to sleep for half an hour and wake up with Britain out of the EU, a new prime minister, terrorist attacks and now some military coup thing going on.

    This might have major implications for ISIS. A new attitude from Turkey towards ISIS might help bring an end to ISIS?
    A new attitude from Turkey (if it's the Kemalists) is an end to Rojava.

    Who knows at this stage. I'd wait until the home office updates their travel advice (I'd imagine tomorrow) before cancelling anything. But as said before, you might find that your insurance is not valid if you do go.

    If I was to put my money on anything, I would guess probably less peaceful than the 2014 coup in Thailand where the government didn't really have any authority in the first place. And there is always the question of whether Russia decides to get opportunistically involved in which case I would recommend not being anywhere near Turkey.
    Oh blimey. Now I'm just a tiny bit worried

    Well if according to reports.
    It will just be one islamic leader for another (gulen)
    I'd be lying if I said I knew anything about Gulen, and thus, if he were an improvement on Erdogan. From what I read of his movement on Wikipedia he has espoused a more 'pacifist, modern-orientated version of Islam' which I imagine is a move in the right direction.

    I could be wrong however so if anyone has idea it would be nice.

    It's difficult to tell exactly the extent of what's going to happen but this has the potential to be very very messy.
    Bloody hell. Why can't their just be peace in the world for goodness sake?!
