  1. He’s right about that, but the army has the same concerns which we have, like the potential replacement of our political system with religious rules.

  2. From what I know of the Turkish Constitution, the Turkish military can’t stay out of an election that might place an Islamist into power. I believe they’re charged with insuring that laiklik continues.
