Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if the nukes have already been moved out of that base. With everyone freaking out about the nukes being there it puts a major target on that base. I just wouldn't be surprised if they have already been moved and we just have an empty building everyone is talking about now.

Erdogan will follow the same path Hitler did and he will have the people's support.

I honestly wasn't all that worried about Erdowan's threat as an autocrat until I saw the base of his support over the last week. And it has only been further consolidated since then. It's a lot worse than I thought
If he takes turkey into Russia sphere of influence, then we have a serious problem in the Middle East with Russia, not just in Syria where the were only hurting themselves.
As far as I'm concerned, that would nullify any complaint they have ever had about "NATO encroachment." All bets are off.
I already wonder if in the future, the coup attempt will be looked upon as another version of hybrid warfare.

You guys speak as if hitler was the most evil man around, when we have got Stalin right next door who murdered 22 million people. I really hate that the history books were written by the victors.

Wtf? Stalin's war crimes are well documented, and it's widely known that he was just as fucked as Hitler. Nobody's measuring dictators' dick sizes here, we're drawing parallels to historical shifts towards totalitarian regimes.

Well of course they are well documented, what things past the 1800s arent? My issue is thats its not well known. Stalin also was in control of a totalitarian regime, they simply slapped a new name on it and called it a communist regime.
