Coup in Turkey

Coup in Turkey


If the straights are blocked for trade won’t that piss off the Russians somewhat?


He is more popular in the Middle East, but agree with his views on Israel. Dividing the country, where he is more popular with the Islamic population.

It is a shame as I love Turkey, which I have visited 7 times, but would not go near the place the last couple of years for a holiday.

Seems that Erdogan has left the country on a private jet!


Umm Egypt springs to mind as the last one.


Dude, you’re a shortarse on a smartphone in someone’s hand!

That is really not a look that says “authority”.

Spectacularly ill-judged decision by Erdogan to make a statement via Facetime.


East Timor and the Philippines and many others ha ha, SuperMikey you’re a top fellow but a little off the mark there mate, Coup’s happen all the time, this is sounding like a bit of the sponsored sort to me but there go. Not the Mark Thatcher shite one either.


Barry your Hazell Dean joke was so bad in renders everthing you say subsequently as null and void


Wouldn’t be surprised if this was given the nod by the US or Nato.


Haven’t we just had a (very British) coup here?

Seems like it to me.


True enough, that comment was off the mark. Egypt and Philippines don’t really hold the same kind of influence on the global stage as Turkey does though - it’s Europe’s link to the Middle East and an important ally in that area. Would be interesting to see what kind of relationship the EU and NATO would have with a military government in the country…


Top Gent as always Mikey.


So where does Let’s Be Avenues mother in law fit in with your theory?


Lets be Drinking even … funny username.

Sounds like Mikey’s giving Bazza a golden shower :lou_is_a_flirt:


Well that is one thing the remainers said that is coming true. Turkey ain’t joining the EU anytime soon, although arranging a coup is a bit overboard to prove a point


I know but I felt it was worth the effort to support my argument.


Looking at the BBC it seems that the coup had just about been crushed by Erdogan and loyal forces. But how reliable is social media reporting these days?


They fucked that up. That’s the only chance they’ll ever get to take Erdogan out. Should’ve got him first.


Media are saying Erdogan instigated this to strengthen his position, well the EU is off the table but more importantly what is going to happen to the 3 Million refugees?
