EU File: Fars News Agency reports Russian FSB tipped off Turkish MIT of coup plot “hours” before faction in military launched putsch, Gulenists allegedly learned their plans were compromised, decided to strike ahead of original timeframe, Erdogan held emergency consultations with Iranian security officials, Quds Force “reviewed various scenarios that might emerge” (Iranian intervention ?!); Russian “army intelligence” (i.e., GRU 6th Directorate) at air base in Latakia, Syria, reportedly intercepted “highly sensitive army exchanges and encoded radio messages showing that the Turkish army was readying to stage a coup,” coupists conspired to kidnap or kill Erdogan while president vacationed at resort in Marmaris; Kremlin spokesman Peskov scoffs at Iranian report: “I have no such information and do not know which sources the agency is referring to’; Turkey charges 99 generals, admirals with “treason” in coup plot, announces 3-month state of emergency, suspends adherence to European Convention on Human Rights; NATO chief Stoltenberg hopeful, expects Turkey’s reaction to abortive coup “to be proportionate and in line with the values of NATO,” “no talks to reconsider Turkey’s membership in the military alliance”; US Def. Sec. Carter confident power will be restored “soon” to Incirlik base, US airmen at “highest security alert”

Notwithstanding the Kremlin’s formal denials, this report is very probable, i.e., Russian GRU is definitely operating in Syria, and we know Putin is more than happy to stir the pot wherever he can, i.e., destabilize Turkey, force its withdrawal from NATO, bring it into the orbit of the Moscow-Tehran-Damascus Axis, etc.

    Hmm, interesting, Iran was involved with Turkey, even though they’re different brands of Islam, Iran being a Shiite Islamic Republic and Turkey being a Sunni…

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/1493143/turkey-arrests-62-school-kids-for-treason-following-last-weeks-failed-coup/

    This article up there disgusts me that someone like Erdogan would arrest children for “treason”…I wonder if Russia’s goals are to create chaos in the region so that they can easily squash them with military force. Why else would Russia invade and takeover the Crimea? They used the Crimea before even under the Czarist regimes to invade the Ottoman Empire…

    …you wonder if they’re setting themselves up for such an event to take place in the near future with either President Trump or Hillary in the White House….
