The Syrian debacle is nothing but the ploy and play of foreign powers. Turkey, or rather Erdogan, is playing a very dangerous game, he is residing and inflaming over a sectarian issue pitting Sunnis against Shia's; i.e. Muslim against Muslim. Everyone should take their hands off Syria and let the country decide on its own what the future will be.

I doubt very much that these provocative incidents are instigated by Mr. Assad's army. Subsequently, I believe they are instigated by those who would benefit if Turkey retaliates and if this escalates to a full fledged war. Its really a non brainer. Regards

Not a good cause for WAR? Every passing hour, day we come closer to war. We should recognize a larger conflict between Sunni & Shia . Syria will be beginning of 21st century era of confrontation between two-2 sectarian sides IRAQ, IRAN vs Turkey, Egypt, SA, UAE, & Sunnis around the world. Erdogan promotes Sunnis agenda & strategy by dumping Israel, supporting concept of Jihad with Hamas & Syria terrorists! Many Turks, Sunnis, Muslims will die because of Erdogans policies, adventures..
