Turkey’s Attempted Military Coup d’Etat against President Erdogan

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, July 16 2016

Turkey’s Failed Coup: “A Gift from God” or from Washington?

By Tony Cartalucci, July 18 2016

The coup this weekend that rocked Turkey was a particularly spectacular geopolitical development. Theories abound regarding who was behind it and their motivations for carrying out what ultimately proved an apparently failed attempt at removing the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.


Post- Coup Turkey will be Distinctly Eurasian

By Andrew Korybko, July 17 2016

The aftermath of the failed US-directed and Gulen-inspired coup attempt is already making itself clear, with Prime Minister Yildirim stating that Turkey might reinstate the death penalty to deal with the plotters.

Public Support for Turkey’s Erdogan More Suspect Than Real

By Stephen Lendman, July 18 2016

In the wake of Friday’s aborted coup, thousands rallying for Erdogan looked suspect.

Genuine support in the wake of an aborted coup would bring tens or hundreds of thousands out in force.


Military Coups, Turkey and Flimsy Democracy

By Dr. Binoy Kampmark, July 17 2016

“A minority within the armed forces has unfortunately been unable to stomach Turkey’s unity.” -President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Jul 15, 2016. Any aspect of instability in the state of Turkey is going to be greeted with trepidation by those partners who bank on its security role between East and West. The European Union, that rattled club of members who fear the next onslaught against its institutional credibility, have been bolstering Ankara in the hope to keep refugees at bay.
