The first is that this was a spontaneous coup organized by the army or the people who wanted to overthrow the government in place to render Turkey more "democratic".
The second is a false-flag operation instigated by Erdogan and his entourage in order to authorize, by repression, an increased clamping on the Turkish society.
A third, not to be overlooked, hypothesizes a coup fomented by the United States and their allies in the Middle East to expel the Turkish establishment that began to move closer to Russia. This is Alexander Dugin's hypothesis (and Erdogan's), who develops an analysis centered on the possibility of a parallel state in Turkey.
I completely agree with you. Perhaps the time will show what exactly was it about. Still, I can easily exclude the spontaneous coup because nobody can put itself in such situation to be sloppy. You plan it extraordinary or you don't do anything at all, especially when the death penalty is the price you have to pay in case of failure.
The third possibility is very likely since the dog started to correcting his mistakes with both Russia and Israel. The NATO membership is seriously compromised.
Still, that all doesn't change the facts about his active sponsorship and logistic support for ISIL and moderate cannibals over the last 5 years, spilling Kurdish blood in both Syria and Turkey, increasing islamism throughout the state and a desire to become an absolutist.
The failed coup came just perfect for him to continue with removing all of his political and social opponents and threats to his ideology and power. What comes next, only God knows but overall it's bad for Europe in any case.
The whole thing with Putin is about to press the whole Europe with Turkey for unconditional supporting USA foreign policy, at least I see this all.
