The soldiers weren’t willing to fire on the crowds, but Erdogan isn’t afraid to torture the soldiers.

  1. Yet morons running the EU still want to let Turkey in.

  2. Lesson for all would-be coup plotters — go big or go home.

    • If the guy you’re trying to overthrow is seen on your local CNN station during the process, your coup is going to fail miserably.

  3. I think the problem with this coup is that Ergodan has some degree of support from a large plurality of the country, and the West isn’t quite willing to upset the apple cart in a country that’s next to Syria. Had the coup worked, I suspect we would have been rather friendly with the interim government, but we can’t say much now given that we need Ergodan to permit access to Turkish air space, and to hold some of the Syria refugees lest they come to Europe.

    • David Alexander, the legend!

      One of the weirdest guys, definitely weirdest Haitian, ever on the alt right/manosphere/ PUA nerd sites.

      Now we just needs some of those crazy Indian women to show up.

      • @ Average Man,

        That dusky thing still shows up from time to time. It uses different handles but is quite easy to identify by its obvious inferiority complex concerning white women.

  4. Erdoğan’s constituency is like that for Brexit and Trump: more rural and less educated. (In the Erdoğan case religion also plays a part; not at all so with Brexit and not so much with Trump.)

  5. Heh heh, soldiers were forced to stare at Erdogan’s photo. Torture indeed.

    Probably illegal to make Gitmo detainees stare at a photo of Obama. Definitely torture to make them look at a photo of the FLOTUS.

    • Michelle Obama is attractive enough for a 52-year-old black woman. Definitely sexier than Barbara Bush. However, I am certainly looking forward to First Lady Melania.

      • She constantly projects extreme resentment. Her default facial expression makes her the poster girl for Bitchy Resting Face. Personally I’d rather be forced to look at a picture of a Cape Buffalo.

      • Good point about Barbara Bush. She looked a whole generation older than her husband when he was sworn in. He was 65 but looked like 55. She was 64 but looked at least 75.

        There was a joke from the Poppy Bush presidency along the lines of “you know Bush has too much power when he can get his wife’s picture on the $1 bill.”

  6. Is he torturing the soldiers himself or is he ordering someone else to do it?
