Day 1717 is exactly how military leaders have done it several times throughout the 20th century. Tho, in about a half of the cases it was probably justified. Anyway, exactly that has been going on in Turkey for several months now. Turkey had several coups during the 20th century and it's usually resulted in one dictatorship replacing the next one. Always with a promise of democracy at first. The current leadership, that survived a failed coup about a half a year ago, has recently "suspended human rights" and possibly parts of their criminal law to allow them to arrest anyone they see fit. They've arrested tens of thousands of people so far and the purge is not over yet. A number of european nations have complained that they're obviously using the failed coup to eliminate legitimate political opposition, but they're responding by accusations of fascists interfering with their domestic affairs. I could probably continue/expand this into a proper wall of text, but this should be enough. GMRE (talk) 12:47, March 19, 2017 (UTC)

I'm sure no one on this wiki was around during that time, but does anyone remember this? It was deliberately set so as to give the government an excuse to become what ultimately fell 12 years later
And I'm pretty sure everyone has heard of this
The 2016 Turkish coup d' tat may well have become justification to legitimize eliminating political opposition, but then what about this? Surely that could not have been the result of internal fighting?
And GMRE, yes
A number of European nations are already concerned over Turkey cooperating with Russia over the supposed cease fire in Syria, and frankly, that area is such a hot spot for hackers and spammers, this is as far as I'll go
In conclusion
Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it
Although sometimes mass genocide of a race can also result as a unintended side effect Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 13:13, March 19, 2017 (UTC)
