Sunday's CHP rally in Taksim Square passed off peacefully and successfully. Strange. Usually when secularists try to assemble in Taksim Square they are met with water cannon and tear gas (or at least that has been the case for about the past 4-5 years). And that's with a state of emergency in place.

Kılıçdaroğlu has been attending a meeting at the illegal palace this afternoon - a place that he has up until now boycotted. Some kind of realignment is going on.

SAS troops poised to EVACUATE Britons from Turkey amid fear of SECOND military coup.

With fears rebels could be about to try to overthrow the government for a second time, which is likely to result in a Turkish civil war, troops have moved into neighbouring Cyprus and are preparing a rescue mission to save stranded Britons. Hundreds of jets, helicopters and other aircraft will be drafted in to help the estimated 50,000 Brits flee the danger.

One senior defence source said “Every country with nationals living in or on holiday in Turkey will be attempting to rescue them and we intend to be ahead of the game.” British diplomats fear Turkey, which borders Iraq, Iran and Syria, is now so unstable further bloodshed is inevitable. British troops will establish “secure zones” inside Turkey and at airports to aid the airlift.

Is this basically what is going to happen next in Turkey?

I just remembered an old Erdoc*nt quote "“...democracy is a bus ride … once I get to my stop, I’m getting off”. :lol:

I guess he's now officially off the bus! :lol:

Pigs will never fly, but ...
A large portrait of Ataturk is now being displayed on the side of the AKP general headquarters' building.

Is this for real? Are they really trying to smooth relations with the secularist/Kemalist section of society?

...the soldiers (for the most part) did not fire on the civilians, they did not shoot down Erdogan in flight; what does it say about them as keepers of this Democracy?

...what does not kill you only makes you stronger, goes both ways in this incident. The TSK is bigger than Erdogan's followers. Yet today, a giant portrait of Ataturk flies on the AKP's headquarters; what does that say?

Balance is the issue, between the extremes, a fulcrum that can support the weight of both.

The balance will be reached when all Turks are eliminated.

Hopefully very soon... :)
