As with many coups around the world, the aftermath will be bloody and repressive. It will be rule of the mob, rather than rule of law that will shape Turkish politics and society. More than 1,000 members of the military have been arrested and more than 2,000 judges have been laid off. Pro-government mobs have brutally attacked anyone they perceive as being anti-Erdoğan or anti-government. Darker days lie ahead for Turkey.

This coup is the best thing that ever happened to Erdoğan, as he’ll be able to grab all the power he ever wanted! He couldn’t have orchestrated a better coup attempt himself! Oh wait… I wonder…
