re: Turkey is turning into a Islamic dictatorship and the world is just watching - Bayou Sam
As far as I know, Erdogan did not say that. In his speeches yesterday, he said that Obama supported him against the coup and NATO did as well. However, some (pro-Erdogan) newspapers have made that charge. Also, to say that our base is under siege is a strong exaggeration. ...

Yeah, so for example, 95 or so professors were fired from Istanbul University, which is generally known as a conservative / Islamist university. Very telling that this university bore the brunt of the firings. ...

re: The parallels between Germany 1933 and Turkey 2016 are uncanny - Bayou Sam
Yeah maybe I misspoke. I don't think he's "genuinely" Kemalist, because I don't think he's genuinely anything.

re: Turkey is turning into a Islamic dictatorship and the world is just watching - Bayou Sam
I just posted a longish thing in the other thread on this very issue. On education, it's bad, but most of the closings/firings were of teachers with Gulenist leanings. The deans resigned but they will (almost) all be returned to their positions before the next term starts. The purpose is to condu...

re: The parallels between Germany 1933 and Turkey 2016 are uncanny - Bayou Sam
As someone who has paid very close attention to these events and lives in Turkey (though in USA right now), my thoughts: 1) the coup was not a false flag operation. All evidence points to the contrary. You can google timeline of events for yourself. 2) it failed because turkish intelligence fo...

According to the facebook page he was associated with (which may be fake) he worked for a quasi-libertarian org called Newsballs which was pro-Trump. Again, we'll find out soon enough. ...

There's basically the same info here, which I didn't post bc, well, it's the Washington Times. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jul/17/gavin-eugene-long-identified-baton-rouge-gunman/ FWIW you can google the headlines of WSJ articles and get around the paywall that way....
