  • Traitors captured and massacred.
  • Few anti-Erdogan military personal fled to Greece.
  • Conspiracy theory that Erdogan himself has carried out the coup.
  • US and its allies is also blamed.

Erdogan back in power.

The Turkish military coup that recently shook the world is terminated and the nearly-ousted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, 'the people's President', is back in power. In a FaceTime appeal, a social media trend the President was so opposed to, the then seemingly ousted-President Erdogan called on his supporters to confront the anti-Erdogan regime military forces involved in the coup de'tat  as it attempted to seize power. It has been claimed, however, that Erdogan carried the coup himself in order to 'cleanse' its military from the traitors. 

The traitors have been captured in thousands and many are believed to be either killed or awaiting death penalties, a law that was abolished in Turkey in 2004. Some anti-Erdogan regime military men involved in the coup have fled to neighboring Greece where they've claimed asylum.

The new-Cold War.

Russia joining the Syrian war.

The US-Russian political relationship deteriorated when Russia forged an alliance with Syria's Bashar al-Assad regime. Prior to the Syrian #war, the world's attention was on the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad's regime and its murderous policies. During the conflict, Assad was wanted for the crimes against humanity for employing the Nazi regime-like propaganda and deadly anti-war tactics. The use of the serene gas by the Assad regime to kill innocent civilians who opposed its government had caused an uproar in the West.  

The Islamic State.

The United States and its allies' attention was diverted from Bashar al-Assad's war crimes to the sudden rise of the Islamic terrorist group the Islamic State. The US and UK-led Iraq war that ultimately led to The Arab Uprising is given as the main reason for Isil's rise to power. In the Chilcot report UK's ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair, who is being held responsible for taking Britain to war in Iraq, has since apologized for the loss of innocent lives. 

Erdogan making enemies with its Allies.

The coup could be a result of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan making enemies with its Western Allies mainly with the USA. A media report suggested that Erdogan was changing Turkey's democratic policies and values and slowly making a shift towards turning the country into a more religious and Islamist Turkey. The New York Times reported that "Mr. Erdogan had grown so alone that this past week he moved to make peace deals with Russian over the jet’s downing and with Israel over its killing of several Turkish activists its on a Gaza-bound flotilla in 2010, after railing against both countries to voters." The Turks believe that the United States took advantage of their deteriorating relationship and helped the US-based anti-Erdogan regime opposition leader Fethullah Gulen to carry out the Turkish coup.

The US taking advantage of the anti-Syrian refugees sentiments.

The Syrian refugee crisis has caused total chaos across the region. Turkey being a European port of call for the oncoming Syrian refugee traffic is feared to be bringing the Islamic State terrorists in a 'Trojan-style' coup of their own.  The US has taken advantage of the anti-Syrian refugees sentiments by arming rebel groups like The Kurdish PKK to fight the Assad regime which is being provided with state-of-the-art arms and ammunition by Russia on the other side in Syria. 

In conclusion.

Vladimir Putin providing shelter to the US whistleblower Edward Snowden has created a crack in the already weak US-Russia relations. Vladimir Putin's bold moves of annexation of Ukraine in 2014 and then forging an alliance with the Assad regime prove that the recent Turkish military coup is a product of the new-Cold War that might ultimately give birth to the World War Three.  #World Politics #Crime
