What is going on in Turkey?

"There have been three successful coups in Turkey, a NATO ally, since 1960, and in 1997 the military carried out a 'soft' coup, issuing directives to the Turkish government that it was forced to accept. The military has cast itself as the traditional protector of secular, democratic rule. "-- USA TODAY

I am interested in the issues that triggered the military coup. It appears that secularism and the rule of law are the core of the issues. It is ironic, but in Turkey the military seems to be a proponent of secularism and democracy.
