Last week, a news circulated in the global village that a military coup failed in Turkey. So far, the type of news it is circulating around the world, the news are from the Turkish president that some military officers were trying to topple his regime. The news are coming from the President, it gives some doubt what is really happened. It appeared that maybe he staged the coup to eradicated those individuals who were standing in his way. Because he has begun to detain judges, and crown attorneys. These guilds has no power to stage a military coup against him.
The Turkish president is accusing a cleric in the US for masterminding the coup in the Turkey. It does not make sense whatsoever. Why would military staff wants to follow a civilian? Distance is a matter. A coup involves secrecy and long distance prevents him to stage the coup.
