1. After night of violence, Turkish coup unravels as organizers flee to Greece
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reasserted at least temporary control over his nation after an attempted coup by a military faction. Nearly 200 people have been killed and more than 1,500 arrested as Erdogan loyalists took to the streets and fought to regain their grasp on power. Erdogan flew into Istanbul early Saturday, declaring “what is being perpetrated is a rebellion and a treason. They will pay a heavy price for their treason to Turkey.” A helicopter carrying eight members of the Turkish military believed to have organized the coup landed in Greece seeking asylum Saturday morning. Turkey has demanded immediate extradition of the “eight traitors,” but Greece has pledged to “proceed according to the international law.”

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. Fear not! For the crimson flag that proudly waves in these dawns, shall never fade,
    Before the last fiery hearth that is ablaze within my nation burns out.
    And that, is the star of my nation, and it will forever shine;
    It is mine; and solely belongs to my nation. What man would not die for this heavenly piece of land?
    Martyrs would gush out if you just squeeze the soil! Martyrs!
    May God take all my loved ones and possessions from me if he will,
    But may he not deprive me of my one true homeland for the world. (★
