Yes, but WHO? Someone has to take the leader's seat.

Now, personally, I hated Erdogan's policies, but we're probably about to see even worse...

Internet has just been cut in Ankara, so if Stewie lives there we're out of luck.

Stay safe, Stewie!

@Zephyrum: That's true. The coup eras of Turkey have been ever worse than the Islamist eras they step in to stop. We need to wait and find out which faction this is.

lol no, internet's still alive

We'll probably just seeing a repeat of 1980 coup right now, it's not the first time.

Also no real updates for now, jets still flying up. I'll keep this updated regularly.
