He probably had enough people placed in the military where the coup was only attempted by part of it. We'll have to wait and see

Irregardless of this, i'm just happy to live in Vancouver. even with how bad and corrupt our politicians like Gregor are, they are still nowhere near the same level as those other countries.

I've been on the phone with Air Canada for nearly 1.5 hours trying to get my flight that depart from Istanbul on the 18th to Vancouver rerouted from Greece.

I've heard everything from:

- Your flight is still valid and it has not been cancelled so you cannot change your flight yet.
- There are currently no problems in Turkey and your flight will depart as scheduled.
- The airport may be open on the 18th of July so your flight will likely still depart from Istanbul on the 18th.

By the 2nd call, I found a press release on their website referring to a policy that allows me to change my flight due to the circumstances in Turkey. Now I'm on hold for someone to see if I am eligible. Just bonkers.

The person working the phone was probable stuck in a cubical and had not seen the news.

Guy came off as nice guy originally, then turned maniacal. People not impressed, didn't do anything. Small part of army decides they want to play hero. People choose the evil they know vs the evil they don't know. End.

Not to be all CiC, but the first thing I thought when it ended so quickly that it was staged.

Turns out I'm not the only one who thinks this - Fethullah Gülen himself said it might have been https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...y-coup-erdogan

It's happening

Turkey coup attempt: State of emergency announced - BBC News

Hürriyet Daily News | Turkey to temporarily suspend European Convention on Human Rights after coup attempt

So basically the government can do whatever the fuck they want now, since they were "threatened".

Anyone else want to join me in the false flag conspiracy theory?

I guess the threat of getting kicked out of NATO doesn't mean much to Turkey, eh?

There are those who argue that a Turkish exit from NATO could affect the alliance more than it would Turkey. Its important to keep in mind that Turkey is NATO's second largest member and has been one of the most active participants in NATO operations worldwide.

They are a vital asset to NATO in the middle east and play a pivotal role in the Syrian context. In all likelihood, Turkey won't leave NATO (at least not for the foreseeable future) as the U.S relies on the use of its airbases for ongoing operations in the region and Turkey under the Erdogan administration has proven very useful to NATO as mentioned above.

Undoubtedly, Turkey plays a pivotal role when it comes to the Syria situation. At the same time, I can't help but think that the European members has to be fed up and tired of the way Turkey is milking the Syrian refugees for its own benefits in the EU. They are literally using it as ransom to get what they want from the EU -- the refugee floodgates open if Turkey doesn't get what they want. You can't negotiate and work together with someone in bad faith like that.
