Erdogan’s Regime May Have Staged Turkey Coup

Twitter Inc (TWTR) Turkey Coup

The failed coup in Turkey against Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s regime has resulted in the death of nearly 300 people, with more than 1,000 causalities. Furthermore, the authorities have arrested nearly 3,000 coup plotters, with reports that at least 1 person was beheaded & thrown off the Istanbul bridge, into the Bosphorus. Many other captured soldiers have been beaten by Erdogan supporters with belts & sticks.

Exiled Cleric, Fethullah Gülen, Says That Turkey Coup May Have Been Staged

Leader of the Gullen Movement, Fethullah Gülen, has told the Guardian in interview today that the coup may have been staged by President Erdogan. Erdogan has accused the Gulen Movement of coordinating & leading the coup, & has called on Fethullah Gülen (who lives in the U.S., Pennsylvania) to be extradited to Turkey.

Mr Gülen said “I don’t believe that the world believes the accusations made by President Erdoğan. There is a possibility that it could be a staged coup and it could be meant for further accusations.”

Coup Failed Because Rebels Didn’t Look Like They Were Going to Win

Vox has recently interviewed Naunihal Singh, an expert on coups. The article (published on Vox today) read “According to Singh, the failure of Turkey’s coup wasn’t likely determined by the coup plotters’ military strength, or even their support inside the military. It was determined by their inability to make it seem like they were going to succeed. The ability to shape perceptions of success, often through media, is crucial in coups — basically, if people think a coup is going to succeed, they usually just join up because they don’t want to be on the wrong side of the guns.”

Singh also give other reasons for the failure, but the rebel’s inability to make it seem like they were going to win was perhaps their biggest mistake. Turkey is now in a state of uncertainty & unease, and British nationals are have been advised (by the Foreign Office) to stay indoors.
