Skip to comments."Why They Didn't Fire Is A Mystery" - Coup Pilots Had Erdogan's Plane In Their Sights
Posted on 07/18/2016 6:18:41 AM PDT by Enlightened1
As Reuters reports, at the height of the attempt to overthrow Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, the rebel pilots of two F-16 fighter jets had Erdogan's plane in their sights. And yet he was able to fly on.
The government narrative, completely fabricated as it may be, is the following:
Erdogan said as the coup unfolded that the plotters had tried to attack him in the resort town of Marmaris and had bombed places he had been at shortly after he left. He "evaded death by minutes", the second official said. Around 25 soldiers in helicopters descended on a hotel in Marmaris on ropes, shooting, just after Erdogan had left in an apparent attempt to seize him, pro-government broadcaster CNN Turk said. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim had also been directly targeted in Istanbul during the coup bid and had narrowly escaped, the official said, without giving details.
Flight tracker websites showed a Gulfstream IV aircraft, a type of business jet owned by the Turkish government, take off from Dalaman airport, which is about an hour and a quarter's drive from Marmaris, at about 2240 GMT on Friday. It later circled in what appeared to be a holding pattern just south of Istanbul, around the time when a Reuters witness in the airport was still hearing bursts of gunfire, before finally coming in to land.

It’s a fake coup that lasted only a few hours, and now ISIS Allie Erdogan has his excuse to be a butcher his society.
They should never have begun until he was dead.
His luck is bound to run out sometime
That’s an interesting theory
I would not put it past the diaper-heads
This whole thing was like a low budget Hollywood production of a fake coup. I am looking for the credits from The Asylum, producers of Sharknado.
Does anyone think that Obama wants Erdogan dead? Turkey has been transitioning to fundamentalist Islam for years. That’s what the ‘Powers That Be’ want for the world. I sure hope we aren’t funding those who are instituting Sharia Law in Turkey.
Always look for the simplest explanation. They’re Turks, and they’re Muslims. That means everything they do is a screw-up.
Probably knew the guys flying the other planes personally.
Probably thought of them as colleagues, mentors, or role models. May have even been personal friends.
“.....everything they do is a screw-up.”
This is a true story. I had to go to Incirlik in the late 1990s (the city airport, not the military airport) and they were just opening up the new section of the local airport. The plane just parked in the middle of the ramp and we had to walk toward the new terminal building. I needed to use the toilet really bad....number one.
So the airport guy pointed over to a shiny new door and I entered the airport toilet. Here’s five urinals and I step up to it....and start my business. I can hear some kind of liquid hitting the floor....and look down.
There is not pipe connecting the urinal to the drainage. It’s just dumping the liquids from number one onto the floor and there it lays.
At that point, I spread my feet apart and I didn’t really care....wrapping up my business and leaving it there for them.
I could mention the screwed-up million-dollar barracks on Incirlik that was uninhabitable when completed, but why waste space.
If it was not a false flag its the worst coup ever.
Absolutely! Erdogan has solidified his Islamic base and is purging those that want closer ties to the west and civilization.
More than interesting. This fake coup gave him complete ISLAMIC control and purged the secularists in one day! Look also at Obama’s statements supporting the new (cleaned out) regime. Now we have a fully Islamist state INSIDE NATO. ( Might as well invite Puton in too. ) NATO has now been injected with Muslimanoma.
Fake coup. Many soldiers were duped and unwittingly gave their lives for a fake cause. Pitiful.
“That means everything they do is a screw-up.”
You’re more right than you realize.
It’s a point we’ve forgotten.
In Islam, striving for perfection is immoral: since only Allah is perfect, humans must be imperfect - not just by nature, but as an imperative.
Everything a Muslim does must have an error, so they deliberately introduce flaws into everything they do; as the works of people build on each other, those errors accumulate into serous screw ups.
I imagine he will meet the end of all power hungry dictators. This guy is as close to an antichrist figgure as we have seen in a long long time.
Fake coup.... or actually, it is coup? The fake coup was the military so the president could seize power. So the president had a coup while saying the military tried it. He’d make a great democrat in the US
Yep, total fake.
