Unfortunately it appears that Turkeys military coup which had admiral objectives -
Turkish Armed Forces have completely taken over the administration of the country to reinstate constitutional order, human rights and freedoms, the rule of law and the general security.
failed. So constitutional order remains wobbly, human rights and freedoms remain subjugated to Islam, the rule of law continues to be subjugated to sharia and general security threatened. Obama is pleased the Islamic autocrat has triumphed. Birds of a feather, so to speak, although apparently not water proof.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and President Barack Hussein Obama in the Rose Garden, 2013
Some have suggested that Erdogan orchestrated the coup himself, in order to give more legitimacy to his regime and allow the acceleration of the conversion of Turkey from a democratic parliamentary government to an Islamic presidential regime. And possibly set up the New Ottoman Empire with Erdogan the leader of the New Caliphate. That could mean war.

Disaster...especially on the rest of the world stage. We now have a serious problem. Those who would move us to islam are going to have a real chance to succeed here now.
“Unfortunately it appears that Turkeys military coup, ................. failed.”
Don’t believe it.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is Baghdad Bob’s cousin. /s
They wanted their Navy to join the coup?
Like the “WKRP Great Turkey Drop!”
Military in tanks overpowered by citizens and police?
I don’t understand.
Helicopters firing on a group of people and not one knocked down?
A couple of bombs on the Parliament building that just breaks a few vases?
WOW! This is the much feared Turkish Military???
You have cracked their clever code. Evidently, some naval officer is directing the coup.
That was not the entire Turkish military but a faction. Had their entire or most of their Armed Forces turned against Erdogan he would be maggot food today.
We know who lost Iran and it looks like Obama lost Turkey.
Well, Iran = Shia. Erdogan and ISIS = Sunni. Erdogan may soon see an ISIS alliance as making himself The Caliph. The efforts of Ataturk to modernize Turkey have probably just been undone. While Zero is fine with this Putin probably won’t be. We’re I an objective observer I would prefer an alliance with Putin over one with Zero.
the problem was they didn’t get erdogan 1st
It was an Erdogan “Reichstag Fire”.
Wot? What the bloody soddin’ ‘ell is an “admiral objective”? A full broadside firing?
