This could be great, Erdogan is a lunatic with IS sympathies who's been trying to make Turkey more Islamic, and has allowed the flow of refugees from the Middle East to the rest of Europe. The military is mostly secular, pro-EU and Europe. If they usurped Erdogan it would actually be great, Turkey would probably become way more stable. The major problem is the possible outbreak of a civil war. We saw what happened in Syria. Think of the possible people inflow if the country were to fall apart, people with certain leanings travelling to the wrong places. Not to mention the bloodshed.

The next few hours will be incredibly important. This could be the biggest political event in recent years.

I figured a pro-European stance was needed for balancing.

This honestly seems like a benevolent coup, like Egypt's, if you can call a coup benevolent. There's no way the military plans on retaining a long-term regime while remaining a NATO member, and they're definitely not going to risk leaving NATO.

Traditionally speaking, Turkey's military keeps the government in check. They're doing this to re-implement true democracy, basically.

But the question is, will NATO allow it?

I don't see why not. It is general knowledge now that Erdogan is batshit crazy.

Hasn't Turkey done this many times? This isn't the first time that one branch of their government is keeping another in check.

I did just hear about explosions though, so I'm not sure what the hell that could have to do with an apparent peaceful coup.

Also, Erdogan is telling his people to go out into the streets. Is he actually trying to cause conflict and violence in this situation? Is he actively asking for this to escalate more?

Think the idea is the more civilians on the streets, the less police and military will be inclined to attack each other for fear of collateral damage.

Erdogen giving a press conference via iPhone Skype video is by far the most brilliant thing I've seen today.

Meanwhile Erdogan's media says the coup has failed, and Erdogan's plane has just landed in Istanbul. It's happening, lads.
