GENERAL STAFF SEEKS ANSWERS TO FIVE QUESTIONS

According to reliable sources, here are the command echelon's point of view about Colonel Dursun Cicek and the 'document of fundamentalism':

"Why did they wait so long? No one should expect us to believe that they found the genuine document recently. It is not conclusive at all.

Why did they fail to send it to Ankara?

What was the reason for such a hurry? The Constitutional Court will debate the amendment paving the way for trial of military personnel by civil courts. First, we need to wait for the highest court to make a decision.

They are trying to create a public pressure. If they are sure about authenticity of the document, why do they try to use illegal ways?

It is an illegal and irrational document."

CODE OF ERDOGAN'S VISIT: TURKEY SEEKING WAYS TO AVOID COUP IN PAKISTAN

A military coup is about to happen in Pakistan and Turkey is seeking ways to prevent a possible Pakistani military coup and convince the army to back a "national unity government".

Nearly 190 people were killed in four attacks over the past one month in Islamabad. Between October 12 and 15, Chief of Turkish General Staff General Ilker Basbug was in Pakistan's Swat district where clashes are still continuing. It is possible to assess Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit in the same concept as Basbug's. Raza Gilani's government is sinking fast. Chief of Staff Ashfaq Pervez Kayani is expected to seize the power in Pakistan.

Government has nothing to do against Kayani and a new military coup may lead to a civil war which would even end up with dissolution of the country. It would upset all the balances in South Asia and Central Asia. But the biggest concern is that no one knows who is going to get the control of Pakistan's nuclear bombs.

What Turkey wants to do is to help Pakistan.

EYES TURN ON PROSECUTOR FOR ACTION PLAN AGAINST FUNDAMENTALISM

After the original copy of the "action plan to fight fundamentalism" was sent to Ergenekon prosecutors, a new legal procedure is expected to begin for Colonel Dursun Cicek who has his sign on the paper. Prosecutor can take statements of some officers again.
