Update: Coup in Turkey Fizzling

by bierstadt54

Reports coming out of Turkey suggest the army units behind the coup are being defeated. It now appears the coup was more of a mini-coup, a couplette as it were, and doomed to failure. Soldiers surrendering to police is not exactly a positive sign for these would-be rebels. One must wonder what they were thinking, given that many of them will undoubtedly pay for this mini-coup with their lives. I can only imagine they thought that their insurrection would inspire many others to join them. However, there is still a lot more information we don’t have and always the possibility that there could be more to the coup plot than we have seen.
