What does that say about the West when Turkey of all people is the first nation to seriously contemplate helping out in Syria?

It also says a lot that Turkey is a Muslim nation.


If the West invaded you'd get the usual BS about modern-day Crusades and so on.

And for both the above reasons, it's probably best that it's Turkey rather than the west getting nvolved.

What it says is that Turkey is anxious to be accepted as part of the EU and the West.

As Syria further dis-intregrates it will NOT be surprising to see both Anxiety and Involvement at SOME Level by neighboring Countries -- not ONLY Turkey but also certainly Lebanon (a Syrian Vassel State) and also Iraq ...

There has already been some sectarian violence reported in Lebanon as a result of the Syrian situation.

Syria shot down a Turkish plane not in Syrian airspace; that is an act of war.  Good enough  reason to make a counter move.
