TURKEY’S FAILED July 15 coup never stood a chance. It was very poorly managed, but even if it had been better organized, it would not have succeeded in toppling the regime.

What a better organized attempt could have succeeded in doing is bringing upon Turkey a disaster along the lines of the Syrian, Yemeni or Libyan conflicts, laying waste to the country for years.
