Chaos at CNN Turk

1. What the hell happened Friday night in Turkey? I still can't believe there was an attempted coup.
2. I feel really bad for the low-level soldiers who were just taking orders from above.
3. I'm definitely not a fan of military coups, but I was kind of rooting for them to succeed. I don't pretend to be an expert on Turkish politics or history, but Erdogan was becoming more and more autocratic.

How sad for those poor soldiers. How can't those civilians see they are just following orders? And how does police don't stop what seems like can turn into a lynching? Anyway, it has to have been a poorly prepared coup by how it failed, and how we see here, even police were able to resist the soldiers.
