Military not in the picture

Reader comment on item: Will Turkey's Military Emulate Egypt's?
in response to reader comment: military

Havas Abi, if it were that easy. He will not want to be ceremonial, he is natural born dictatorial personality. There is nothing for him to change constitution, except the unrest next year, which will follow his decision.

This will be a final turning point for Turkey. The hope before then is to split him with Gulen and leave him weakened. But he is smart . They already started going after Zaman newspaper if you noticed, attacking them in newspapers. Just the first step. All these other AKP guys are nothing without Erdogan which is why they are so loyal to his team. Military is not in the picture at all.
