Attempted Coup Currently Occurring in Turkey

Irish time: 15 July, 2016 10.04PM

Turkish PM arguing it’s defintiely NOT a coup, but that parts of the military are taking action without a chain of command. Semantics?! Really?! An attempted coup is taking place, I’d say the emphasis needs to focus on why and how this is occurring and whether or not people are injured. Social media has apparently been blocked, so there’s little real time information coming from civilians on the ground or the politicians/government or military themselves. A little more concerning than semantics, methinks.

Turking president and PM continue to insist “not to worry”, “government is still in charge” DESPITE the images and videos of military presences, gunfire and protest currently occurring? Evidently, that is not the case or the said President wouldn’t have had to facetime his people rather than through news broadcast. If they are still in charge, why on earth are they asking their supporters to flood the streets and risk their lives further while they hide behind their mobile devices? The situation already seems tense enough without calling for more bodies to join the horde.

 


 

Note: these are spontaneous considerations on Turkish events as they are unfolding, therein I apologise for any grammatical errors/spelling mistakes/etc.
