7月15日土耳其驚傳政變,並於24小時內鎮壓平反。土耳其總統埃爾多安,趁勢大舉肅清國內異議分子,20日宣布全國進入緊急狀態3個月,總統及內閣可無須經國會同意頒布新法律,已有逾萬名教育分子遭革職,數千軍人、警官、法官被逮。

相較雷聲大雨點小的政變過程,海嘯般的政治清算讓外界質疑這場政變是埃爾多安自導自演。18日,埃爾多安接受外媒專訪,且看他怎麼說?


Journalist: What do you say to those who in the early hours suggested that you had orchestrated this?
Erdogan: That's only misinformation. Two hundred and eight civilians dying, 1,500 people getting injured, civilians laying on the ground trying to block passage to the tanks? How can human conscience allow that? No, that is beyond possible. So this is actually a blessing in disguise. And what we have achieved actually is the opportunity that this Fethullah terrorist organization has now received the biggest hit they have ever in this country because they have been discovered completely.

記者:早先有人暗示是你策畫了這場政變,你怎麼說?


埃爾多安:這是誤傳。208位市民喪生,1500人受傷,人民躺在地上試著阻止坦克車通過?怎麼會有人類良心允許這件事?這是不可能的,所以這其實是因禍得福。我們實際做到的是,這次讓法土拉恐怖主義組織在土耳其遭到有史以來最大打擊,因為他們被徹底找出來了。

Orchestrated / ˋɔrkɪs͵tret / 精心安排、策畫
例句:She orchestrated this secret proposal to her lover.

Conscience ˋkɑnʃəns 良心
例句:My conscience would really bother me if I used too many plastic bags.

a blessing in disguise 因禍得福
例句:The unemployment was a blessing in disguise for him, because he got more time to spend with the kids.
失業對他來說是因禍得福,因為他可以花更多時間陪小孩。
