  • Facu Carrizo

    is @intlspecatator a reliable source???

  • Пламень За Свободу

    omg. there was nice terror attack and then turkish chaos. This world is totally order out of chaos right now.

  • MeMadMax

    This is the greatest NEWS EVER…
    ERDOGHAN was the greatest supplier of arms and fighters for isis/fsa since that whole crap started…

    VIVA SYRIA!

  • Slavonac

    Erdogan flying to London? Is he mad or you have no clues what is going on, those are the very same people who are attempting to topple him…

  • javier

    i heard his plane landed in istambul, there followed a large explosion at the airport….The NWO has forsaken him

  • Jordan

    Calling this a revolution might have been a bit preemptive, it would seem.

    • Well it is one of three things.
      #1 Gang activity.
      #2 Civil Disobedience.
      #3 Revolution.
      Judging that the Turkish military just has to take full control over every institution in Turkey, reminds me when the Zio-Marxist government fell in Moscow, and Russian turned back to there Christ centered roots.
      I remember the tanks shooting down some of the best Russian people. And a new birth of Russia was born. Without that, would we not have Putin today. True Marxism was a better brand towards the end in Russia. But Russia never needed Karl Marx to make Russia strong or great. Russia is more vibrant today. And today Westerners love Russia! Except for Zionist of-course.

  • Everyone support The Peoples Revolution in Turkey! Send them Bitcoin, medical aid, and international political assistance. Do not late satanic-NATO silence their voices.
    We’ve got one chance to make this right, before NATO pawns them against Russians and Syrians and Lebanese and Palestinians.
    We have an opportunity here, lets not let this God given chance go to waist right!

    • AKM

      How?

      • The PKK and other Kurd’s will never get a better opportunity then now and over the next 7 months. A lot of foreign solders and volunteers have been fighting with Kurd’s against ISIS. (including Americans and Europeans)
        Now it is time for the Kurd’s to put out an international call for a few thousand volunteers to join their ranks in their take down of the awful Turkish government.
        Thousands of Europeans and American would take up that call.
        Maybe Iranians? Lebanese? Palestinians?
        Turkey is 100% pro Zionist, so their are many militias ready to pull down the dictatorships of Turkey and Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

        • AKM

          I don’t think westerners will do that. Westerners are too afraid of their own government, and they don’t want to go to prison. PKK is labeled a terrorist organization by the US and NATO. I do agree that Erdogan needs to go, but most westerners are too brainwashed to know the truth about what’s going on around the world. Most Americans can’t even find their own country on a map nor can they run 500 meters without a nap and a Big Mac cheeseburger. I know because I’m American and have lived here all my life. The only difference is that I traveled the whole and do my own research while refusing to watch the mainstream news

  • Shhh

    If the turkish president only appointed a first army general he does not control entire air force or most of military.Those not with him are against him,

  • Pedro Vaz

    Obvious “false flag” coup by Erdogan.

    • AKM

      It could be a false flag coup, so they can bring back the death penalty

  • Meryem

    Guys there is no revulation I am a Turkish girl, and allll the Turkish people went to the city centers and they resist no one can take our democracy from us. I can die for it, so nothing is happening.

    • Meryem

      We won’t let it happen! It will be the fest of Turkish democracy! I am proud of my country and Turkish people.

      • Turkey is not a democracy. Erdogan rules with an iron fist, and does not give his people what they want. Erdogan invaded Syria, and Iraq with the military.
        This is not democracy, this is imperialism.
        You are part of Erdogan cyber army, he learned about this tactic from Israel.
        You are exposed. The world does not even like Erdogan or his imperial government not one bit.
        We are against you, and wish to see Turkey have a REAL Democracy for a change.
