In German we even have a phrase for that. "Nacht der langen Messer"
Really? How many trials did Hitler organise after that night? Oh yeah, none. Which is more likely? That Erdogan himself staged that coup, organizing a conspiracy of thousands who are now willingly facing trial for him, as convenient scapegoats? Or that an outside power with ties to Turkey's elites financed and organized the coup, something that has been factually documented in the Middle East since the Ottoman Empire...
Yeah Im gonna go ahead and safely use Occam's razor on this one.
Fair enough, fact is history will be the judge... and history would show you that what Erdogan is doing now is 1:1 what the NSDAP was doing, albeit over a much longer time period. So if we actually see 20000 fair trials then I take it back.. but somehow I really doubt that
In fact I am pretty sure those 3000 judges will never be seen again...
