Turkey will have a fundametal role to play in the region. It deserves all possible support from Europe and Nato. Politics are slow, that is a pity but we have to live with it. A lot of Europeans will be very happy when Turkey will be able to be a EU member

Seems like NATO, Turkey and Israel are plaing games, none of them are interested in the wellbieing of the Syrian people.

Lol. I think Turkey is a little late on their deployment. Although Turkey is finally getting NATO support, it appears that this is happening only at the last moment. What kind of partnership is that? Considering the recent advances of rebel scum into Damascus, the regime will likely fall within the next 5-6 months. The United States would NEVER allow the fall of influence and military presence in a foreign naval base as much importance as that of Tartus. Why is Russia not helping Syria?
