Apparently Ergodan is in military custody. That was incredibly fast

This is wonderful news. Get that Fascist scum out of the presidential palace and into jail. The presidential palace is an insult to all of the people struggling to earn a living in Turkey. It'd be a waste to bomb it, so maybe turn it into a museum for the arts? Something more useful than emphasizing greed.

I don't know much about Turkey, but isn't the president subservient to the PM, or are they about equal?

I mean, he had it coming. Hopefully the military still see it as their mission to protect the ideals of Kemalism, and don't just try to set up a straight dictatorship or something.

I've got plenty of beer left. I'll be partying.

That's not going to happen. Let's hope we don't need anything stronger than beer by the time the night is over...

I've heard that apparently the military has stated it will preserve human rights and is working to "Preserve Democratic Order" (Whatever that means...)

I need to get myself a portrait of Mustafa. He was great. Kermalism saved Turkey from being another Saudi. And, before anyone says, the genocides were started by the Three Pashas.
