Turkey soment for mass therror trial
the trial many arevive underlying tensions between the country's ruling political party and the military .
some of them maintain the so-called ergenekon network simply doesn't exist; many others believe this trial is the akp's revenge for the closure case, which in the end did not suceed in the constitutional court .
that's something which would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the power of the military, which has mounted three coups since 1960 and, in 1997, eased the country's first pro islamist prime minister from power .
the governing akp has islamic roots, whereas the military is part of the powerful secular establishment and staunch defenders of a unitary, strong, secular state .
