The Turkish Military in the last century (1960, 1971, 1980 & 1997) has several times stepped in and pulled the rug from under past Ankara regimes that went too far, AND it is time for them to do it again!
Didn’t their most recent plot get disrupted and their whole top brass sacked?
I think the days of the army being the guardian of secularism are waning.
The whole “Operation Sledgehammer” scandal really messed things up when the AKP declared that the army was trying to launch a coup and started arresting people.
I haven’t followed it very closely, but it seemed to be a good way to quiet military opposition while AKP backers work their way up the ranks.
It won’t happen this time Bendy. The government has purged the Army of all the secularists.
