First, Turkey is merely an American proxy, a US client state or a useful thug trained and supplied with the latest US arms who will start no real brawl without explicit guarantees and guiding from Washington. Just one shot down Turkish plane caused so much panic, whining and crying in Turkey. Now imagine what will happen if more Turkish planes are taken down by Syrian anti-aircraft defense. Who will step in to save Erdogan's bleeding nose if not Turkey's old master and savior?

Any weakening of Syria and Iran means politically and geostrategically just strengthening of sunnism and in particular of wahhabism or of the US-sunni axis ( Saudi and Qatari wahhabism+al-Qaeda+Moslem Brotherhood +the US overlord), the unholy coalition we know so well from Libya.

Really? You don't know who organized chaos (through al-Qaeda and the Moslem Brotherhood ) in Libya to kick out the Chinese oil companies and grab the Libyan oil and gold? What a fine "democracy" we find there now! You think that this time other players with a different agenda are involved and more "democracy" will be a result as not oil but natural gas and the triumph of medieval wahhabism are at stake, don't you?
