May I ask on what grounds? Coup is apparently failed, Erdogan and his government are legal leadership right now, like them or not.
NATO assets are sum of the assets of member states. I doubt Erdogan would try to prevent exit of non-Turkish NATO elements from Turkish territory if it ever come to this.
Or the basis for NATO incursion would be dislike of what Erdogan is doing?

You are wrong. Diplomatic premises enjoys immunity, yes and according to 1963 Vienna convention, break-in on any grounds whatsoever is illegal. But firstly, there is no break-in,only power shut-off. And it is NOT embassy we are talking about here. Secondly, even violation I mentioned above is no legal casus belli, The only legal one is, according to UN Charter, an attack on country's territory by military of the other country and only with respect to attacking country. And no, embassies DO NOT enjoys exterritoriality. It is NOT considered territory of the other country, it just had privelege of immunity from SOME of the laws of recieving country. Besides. since when a military installation, like airbase, is considered diplomatic premises?
I mean shut-off power on bases and emassy.Thank you for information :).
Did I missed something in this torrent of information? US embassy lost power too?

Hi first time poster and I wanted to say how much I appreciate what this site does and to keep up the good work. I have finally come to the realization that MSM is a joke and is becoming more and more in common with a reality tv than real unbiased news. Sadly, I don't see this changing anytime soon.

Dugin is probably Putin's most trusted advisor.

NOT GOOD!

Edit: the Patriotic party of Turkey is a socialist kemalist minority party, and is not in any significant power within the government.

They're blaming the coup group for downing the Russian plane. Wow.
