The far-right coup plotters had mapped out their own government, with people chosen for cabinet-like roles if they succeeded in overthrowing Germany's elected leaders. That's among the revelations shared by German officials on Wednesday in an update on what they say was a conspiracy foiled by a massive anti-terrorism operation.

At least 25 people are under arrest, including 22 suspected members of a "terrorist organization," Public Prosecutor General Peter Frank said in a brief news conference.

The conspiracy's goal, Frank said, was to overturn "the existing state order in Germany based on democracy, using violence, and to replace it with their own state," according to a translation by Deutsche Welle.

From 2 years ago: The right-wing extremists plot to overthrow the German government.



"Amid reports of right-wing extremist activity in the German police and armed forces, radical groups are said to be preparing a coup against the government. The federal Interior Ministry has promised to crack down on right-wing groups."

Prince Heinrich XIII of Reuss sounds like he'd be a very good dictator.

It's difficult to imagine how deluded (or dumb) you have to be to think you could pull this off.

Elmer Stewart Rhodes level of dumb and deluded. At least Heinrich hasn't shot his own eye out yet.

Weird how countries like Germany and Peru immediately arrest people attempting to overthrow the government, while here in the US we allow them to run for office.
