    Be safe and go somewhere else seeing as though you're going in 5 days. Italy is lovely!!
    But I think my parents will still insist on going to Turkey. I'm just hoping officials ban tourists from going to Turkey or something so we don't have to go

    All talk from Erdogan. He had to Skype a local TV station; he's huddled up in a hotel room with curtains closed. No access to an actual broadcaster.

    Live phone call from Erdogan: I call upon the people of my country to come out to the streets, to airports and stand against these rebels. These rebels will not win and will pay a heavy price.

    Isn't a similar narrative pushed by any coup? You don't get all those soldiers to march through their own streets if you tell them you're going to be the next big dictator.
    True...

    Have to see what happens. Erdogan is an authoritarian **** head.

    Maybe it will be like when the Tsars in Russia were overthrown and they got Tsar 2.0 in steroids with Stalin etc.

    Of course.... Gavin™ is on standby. Usherette™ was going to spend some time in Turkey but that does not look likely now.*

    I very much dislike Erdogan, but how many coups result in more democracy? Not many, notwithstanding the democratic and secular ideals that these plotters claim to uphold.

    Kind of thinking the same as well.. I know nothing might even happen but it will be very unstable and you never know what could occur.

    With Erdogan telling people to take to the streets and doing his speech via the Internet, it looks like he knows the clock is ticking.

    Reports coming in that Erdogan was refused landing at Istanbul and is now trying to get asylum in Germany.

    Possibly false though. Can't imagine why the Turkish armed forces would pass up an opportunity to arrest him upon landing.
