The officiousness of the retired admirals at midnight was enough to turn the agenda of the country upside down!
Although the retired admirals said that their declaration was ultimately a criticism, the declaration published at midnight was perceived by many as a memorandum that evoked a coup connotation.
And a "democracy front" started to form rightly against them!
Retired admirals may be aiming to strain the government with their declarations, but it is clear that their work does nothing but put the power in the hands of the government as a result.
Because before the declaration was published, a lot of issues were on the agenda that had a headache for those in power!
Many issues, from the appointment of four presidents to the Central Bank in twenty months to the loss of billions of dollars, constituted the hot agenda, and those who govern the country were trying to find answers to the problems.
Especially the connection of AKP Headquarters personnel with drugs was an agenda item on its own.
In other words, the spokespersons of power were literally defensive!
The ruling spokespersons breathed a very sigh of relief as a result of the craziness of the retired admirals as Meral Akşener's definition, or the midnight frustration in our words.
And they immediately went from defense to attack!
Challenges against retired admirals saying, "Who are you, you are waving your finger to the nation" were followed by the warnings!
Yes, the agenda of the country suddenly turned upside down as a result of the frustration of the retired admirals and the ruling spokespersons, who had difficulty in defending themselves, went on the offensive.
This sudden change of agenda also affected the partners of the People's Alliance, and the ranks of retired admirals were immediately dismantled and subsequently proposed to cut their salaries.
Finally, legal investigations began against those who had prepared the ground for such fraud.
As such, retired admirals of course have to make an account of what or whom their job is useful for.
It is obvious that they are instrumental in getting a trump card in the hands of the power they criticize and oppose!
This frustration of retired admirals will be on the agenda for a long time after today and there will be a lot of talk about them.
Because the work of the retired admirals is nothing more than “dirtying the middle of the carpet with the thought that we are doing a good thing”.
