Turk President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today staged a massive rally in Istanbul named as “Democracy and Martyrs’ Rally”. Turkey’s main opposition parties, Republican Peoples’ Party and Nationalist Movement Party also joined the rally on the invitation of Erdogan. Turks are agreed on one thing that this failed Gullenist coup was actually planned by CIA. One of theory about failed military coup is that it was rebellion by small fraction with Turkish Military. Second theory is on Fatehullah Gullen’s statement that it was stated by Erdogan himself with the help of his intelligence agency. He claims it on the basis of huge purge after the failed coup, in which thousands of Army personals, Police, Judicial Magistrate and from various other department were included. While the third theory is that to make this CIA sponsored coup unsuccessful, Putin played very important role who sent his special advisor to Turkey and shared intelligence reports and lists to Erdogan.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will be meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin on 9th August. Russian wants to take out Turkey from Western (European and American) camp or even from NATO, to keep away the encirclement of NATO forces from Russia. While Turkey is now seeing the alternative options other than Europe towards East and to open up more economic options. This is way 9th August’s meeting of the two leaders have become of more significance in the current situation.
