Run In Circles, Scream and Shout

Given that the sitting Turkish government was engaged in "de-secularizing" Turkey, it's not clear to me whether the military coup in Turkey is a good or a bad thing from the U.S. point of view. All things being equal, I tend to favor democracy, but it's not at all clear whether those things are equal in this particular case.

The first, best thing to hope for is that as few good people as possible get killed as a result of this.

Everything else turns out to be a case of "Wait and see", I think.
