Last quote by Brian Klaas

This is potentially a poisoned pill. If they don't pass it, Trump looks incompetent. If they do pass it, they're going to have to answer to their constituents in 2018. People who are getting a tax break in this bill are wealthy, and people who are losing health insurance in this bill are poor and disabled … That's going to be very hard to spin in poor districts, which many Republicans represent, in the 2018 mid-terms.

He's going to become much more paranoid. This happens almost always with coup attempts that fail, that there is nearly always a subsequent refocusing on the domestic consolidation of power and that takes the regime's focus away from foreign policy battles and fights.

You very often have to make very unsavoury alliances [in geopolitics], whether that's a good thing or not is extremely debatable. But Turkey is in a geostrategically-important location at a time when that location is exceptionally important for international security between terrorism, the collapse of Syria and the refugee crisis.

Leaders try to decapitate their military and weaken it to make sure no individual general or force within the armed forces has an independent power base and that's not good for NATO's goals because it ultimately undermines their strategic ability to project power in Syria and against terrorism.

NATO wants Turkey's military to be as powerful as possible, because it's a partner that's extremely strategically important for the fight in Syria. But at the same time Erdoğan has now seen the coup is a threat to his power base and his regime's stability and survival.
