The Turkish government is saying they've regained control!
Erdogan returned to the country and spoke live on TV in Istanbul!
It's going down in Turkey.
A faction of the military is attempting to stage a coup and restore democracy and overthrow the tyrant Erdogan.
Listening to Fox News all their guests supported the coup which made me skeptical of the motives, but on the flip side Obama and Merkel are supporting the despicable Erdogan. Seeing as how they're always on the wrong side of history, the coup is probably for the best.
Both sides are obviously claiming they're winning, it's not clear who actually is.
RT has live coverage as does The Independent, the BBC and CNN.
