I have to give credit where it is due- this false flag military coup in Turkey was a brilliant move by the Sultan aspirant Turkish President Erdogan at consolidating his power and furthering his goal of creating a neo-Ottoman Islamic super state.
No, I do not believe this military coup was an organic uprising. This entire situation stinks of a set-up at the highest levels of the Turkish government.
These are the undeniable facts about the current world stiuation:
-President Erdogan wants to revive the Caliphate and declare himself a new Ottoman sultan. We have covered this extensively at Shoebat.com, and his actions clearly bear this out.
-President Erdogan is loved by his people- Islam is on the rise in Turkey, and the people are becoming more religious as they are also rallying around Erdogan, while the policy of “secularism” brought in under Ataturk has been in decline
-More than just Merkel and Erdogan, but Germany and Turkey are historical allies since 1453. They worked together in the Protestant Reformation, World War I, World War II, and against the influence of the Catholic Church in Europe.
-Turkey and Russia are historical enemies, and Russo-Turkish relations are at a historic low. The Russian government’s sanctions against Turkey have destroyed the Turkish economy and Turkey is desperate to recover.
-Germany wants a war with Russia because, as we have discussed at Shoebat.com, it is trying to reassert its imperial past, and part of that includes conquering territories it has fought over against Russia since at least the year 1190.
Looking at these facts, and because there were still a lot of details that were not clear, I also had a series of questions about this coup:
-Who was behind the coup?
-What is the end goal of the coup?
-What is President Erdogan saying and doing?
-What is Russia saying?
-What is Germany saying?
-What is the public response to the coup?
-What is the government’s response?
-What is the military’s response?
-What is anybody else saying or doing in reference to this coup?
Looking at all of the information, and given the obscurity of data, it became clear that until some of these questions were answered, at least in part, it would not be possible to get a clearer look at the situation and assess what is really happening. But as an initial analysis, I had two possible scenarios.
The first scenario assumes that the coup was truly an act of the military against the government. This could be organized by solely the military, or it could be “influenced” by either the Germans or the Russians. Each group would have competing interests for why they would do it, but the point would be in any case to get control over Turkey in order to use that nation for a greater geopolitical end.
The second scenario is that the coup was a false flag event- it would be the government using the military to attack itself designed by nothing other than Erdogan himself. The goal would be to give the appearance of a rebellion, orchestrated at the hands of a few expendable officers, after which the coup would be violently crushed and Erdogan would re-emerged as a “victorious leader” around which people would rally. This would allow him to consolidate his power, purge his enemies with public support, and further his Islamist visions.
As the day passed, the events of the coup went as follows with an approximate timeline:
-1200 News emerges that a military coup is taking place in Turkey
-2000 Turkish government confirms a coup in taking place
-2030 Erodgan reported as being safe, several military officers supposedly taken “hostage”
-2100 Turkish government seized media outlets
-2130 Turkish government says it is still in power, tells people to “protest” the coup, says the coup will be stopped
-2200 Turkish government blames the Gulen movement for the coup
-2315 Gulen movement denies involvement
-2345 Turkey blames Gulen movement again
