This is what’s happening in Turkey right now, set to to Turkey’s favorite news soundtrack (yes this is what the news plays while they show scenes of devastation, earthquakes, wars, blood-stained roads, people screaming etc. they do like a bit of sensationalism)

The current elections - as is all politics in Turkey - is not a simple democratic process. While Erdogan is doing everything he can to stay in power - taking logic-defying *desperate* measures such as blocking Twitter, Youtube and trying to take full control of media - there are clearly other forces in play who are doing everything they can to remove Erdogan - even if it is by the most anti-democratic, shady and fraudulent means.
We're seeing daily leaks - with a build-up towards election day - of 'documents' and 'tapes' (allegedly) proving Erdogan and his crew guilty of fraud, violence and even supporting terrorism and false flag operations to start a war. These are countless, incredible, bold claims, stolen from the most secure and hard to believe sources - such as private phone conversations (audio) between Erdogan and his top intelligence and military personnel. Whether these accusations and leaked documents are true or forged, they are indicative of a considerable power with serious resources determined to eliminate Erdogan, *by whatever means necessary*.

I was wrong about the outcome. I wishfully had assumed that Erdogan would not be able to survive the incredible amount of leaked documents and tapes incriminating him and his crew. But he still managed to win, with a huge margin in fact. He won this battle, but unfortunately the war is far from over and is only going to become more intense.
Erdogan is going to lose one day, the question is how much damage is done before he does.
