Reader comment on item: Why I Rooted for the Turkish Coup Attempt

Submitted by fred schwartz (United States), Jul 20, 2016 at 19:11

Please do not feel alone or lonely on this issue. Erdogan has betrayed hopes for democracy in turkey as he has shut down dissent. He is flirting with extreme Islamist elements.

And in the aftermath of the coup attempt he is now instituting a reign of terror.

Best wishes on your work.
