On July 15th, a coup was launched by the heads of the Turkish military. By the next day, the attempted coup d’etat had failed. Last week I said that this coup was ‘designed to fail’.
I was wrong.
The coup was real.
Erdogan survived because he understood the battleground better than the generals did, and had better reflexes than the generals. And, Erdogan had been planning for this for years.
This was a real coup, with a real attempt at turning Turkey back towards the secularist values of Kemal Ataturk. The failure of this coup places another important piece into the puzzle of Ezekiel’s Fire.
