I am a Turkish-American, and I have been watching the events remotely (as I live in the US) since the first day (or even before). At first, I have thought day this is a part of a broader plan, e.g., changing the regime or so.. Yet, as of yesterday, after Erdogan has lost his very important and last ally (called Gulen group), I have concluded that Erdogan has really lost his mind. It is not unusual, there are lots of leaders in the history that they lost their minds for the sake of power.Now, we will see what will be going on in Turkey (i.e., how long an irrational/insane Erdogan could politically survive) and how this will affect the MiddleEast politics.
