Don't you think the condition of the economy in Turkey, the decline in real 
wages, might have something to do with such "urban middle class cover" 
"secularism," "women's rights"?

I don't doubt the US or Nato "alarm," but 1) the  bourgeoisie, and petty 
bourgeoisie, and military of Turkey are quite capable of 
supporting/conducting a coup for reasons of their own, which will certainly 
reduce the alarm level, but still-- are reasons of their own  2) internal 
resistance to, as well as support for,  Erdogan will be driven by the 
economic conditions.
