Military coup possible in Turkey


The ongoing unrest in Turkey may lead to a new military coup in that country, Israeli political expert Avigdor Eskin told ArmInfo.
PM Erdogan is losing favor in places where is party was once strong. The entire intellectual class, the middle class, have come on the same side of the fence against Erdogan and his creeping islamism.  I don’t know how that reflects on conservative islam but theprotests continueto grow as they enter its 6th day.

“At present, a military coup is also possible, given that it once had happened in Turkey before. If the police display violence and the victims to clashes reach significant scales, a new military coup is quite possible,” Eskin said.  
In that respects it reminds me of Egypt but we all now know that did little to actually change the situation in Egypt for the better.  Lliberal secular forces have been suppressed and islamism reignsin Cairo.  Again, I wish the Turks the best of luck, get what you want and settle for nothing less. Solidarity.  -Mort
