Turkey's secular protests

BBC NEWS | World | Europe | Huge rally for Turkish secularism: "Tens of thousands of people are rallying in Istanbul in support of secularism in Turkey, amid a row over a vote for the country's next president."

There is a scary situation in Turkey at the moment. With the new President appearing to be a fundamental Muslim, arguments over the validity of his appointment, the public rallying for secularism in their government with the protests getting 300,000 people in attendance, and the Army (which has a history of coups) stating that it will defend secularism.

I don't really understand the details of whats happening, but this seems to be a huge event thats being ignored - so I'm going to look into in as soon as I get chance. Here's hoping the people's protests work.

A military coup would be a terrible thing, as is a democracy becoming a theocracy. Unless the peoples protests are sucessful in preventing - or at least constraining - the actions of this new religious government the outlook is pretty dire.

Aside: I'm trying out a new blogging plug in. This should allow me to make more frequent (and worse) posts to the site. Still more content is better right?

The characteristic flare of the Royal breitling replica sale Oak’s integrated lugs and bracelet means that the 36mm 14790 wears in a fashion akin to a 40mm Rolex in look and Patek Philippe replica sale feel. With a full steel bracelet to add mass and wrist presence, the 14790 does not read as a small watch; it reads as a Royal Oak. Even the “engine” beneath the hood of the Royal Oak 14790 hublot replica continues the model line’s early tradition of employing Jaeger-LeCoultre base calibers. In the case of the first 39mm “Jumbo,” motive power was provided by the thin JLC caliber 920 doing business as the AP cal. 2121; the 14790 omega replica watches utilizes a robust AP cal. 2225 (later 2325) based on the JLC 889. Until 2000, Audemars Piguet owned 40% of JLC, and replica watches sale much of the later development work on these movements was a collaborative cartier replica effort.
