the attempted coup in turkey

President Barack Obama of the United States: "We must support the democratic government of Turkey against this coup."

James Healy: "Sometimes, as in this instance, the people mounting the coup are the good guys. Turkey is run by an Islamist fascist grouping. It was elected. But it's still Islamist, fascist and moving fast towards dictatorship. Recip Tayyip Erdogan's government has implicated Turkey in the rise of Isis, a particularly brutal affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Erdogan's adventurism has also been leading Turkey back to open conflict with its Kurdish minority. The coup was a desperate attempt by the Turkish army to rescue its country from the barbarism of Islamist adventurism masquerading as a democratically elected President."
