Turkey's top military leader resign - latimes.com
Just like General McCrystal the administration has the right to decide whom it wants to work with.
Current Generals have been sent to retirement and it has been published in Official Gazette already.
New General Chief of Staff with President Gül:
It does look as if the AK Partisi is shoring up it's control of all the estates of the Turkish Republic. It would appear to be another step along the road to dismantling the Atatürkist secular state. I don't think this can be great news for anyone.
The AK Parti is this region's biggest People's movement with 50% election share.
We don't need paternalism from outside in defining what's good and what's not good for us.
We do exactly as we see fit.
Be it restructuring our Army or other internal decisions.
Men of the People's
I think you missed the point. Nah, I'm positive you missed the point.
Oh and since when was 50% representative of 100%, I must have missed that in math class.
so they didn't resign?
and that photo speaks louldy look at the postures of Gul and the general...wagging his finger....hummmm
EU Parliament's Turkey rapporteur says, that the military resignations have made Turkey more democratic as military must command under civilian rule.

No, they didn't resign because of their pension payments.
They were sent into retirement so they still receive their pensions.
Is that another doctored photo?
And what do you think is good for Turkey? Suppressing minorities? Towering over Cyprus? Denying the Armenian holocaust? Another regime change is not what Turkey needs because it doesn't look like it's any better than what was held before, and regime changes are of the most unstable kind. You want to boot Erdoğan? Really?
This Arab spring (yes, I know Turkey is not Arab) is turning into an Arab piss bucket, not that I wouldn't like to see someone better than Erdoğan...but whatever.
