WWIII has been upon us for decades. Let's just get it over with, and invade the middle east so we can fight China and Russia again.

Don't worry. If Romney wins and starts his promised invasions of Iran, Iraq, Syria, and the Soviet Union, I'm sure he'll just retroactively extend your reserve status.

This is the same regime that thought it was a good idea to use tanks and fight jets against their own civilians. And to shoot down a Turkish fighter plane. Though, there's a good chance that this is just incompetence. There's a lot towns right on the boarder and they're trying to shell THEIR OWN towns and a few shells are drifting over a few hundred meters.
 
2012-10-10 09:22:58 AM  
I think that's the reason why neither Turkey nor NATO are treating a few mortar shells as a line-in-the-sand. It's certainly less of a risk to treat a few stray incidents as incompetence rather than start a hot war just because. I mean, think about it, what would you expect would happen if a country in the midst of a civil war gets invaded? It sounds like a recipe for disaster.
 
2012-10-10 09:29:08 AM  
y'all know that Turkey is a NATO member, right? And NATO is billed as a mutual defense organization?

I'm not saying this is like World War I or anything, but there's a reason why NATO should have been disbanded or at least made much much smaller, and this is it.

I'll be in my bunk...er.

Oh man, the comments in this article make the FARK politics tab seem like an Oxford discourse. There is even a guy claiming the US is extending the war on purpose.

Turkey could wipe Syria off of the map. They have a larger army than we do.

The US can choose to project its power around the world, or not: Incirlik_Air_Base

Turkey hasn't needed the US for defence since the Soviet Union collapsed.  NATO might be a play-house of unruly children - but it's the US that wants to keep the children on side, not the other way round.

Or just not extend "Europe" to include the middle east (Turkey).

In general, I agree with you about entangling alliances...

However, when there is a mutual threat near, there's a reason for organizations like NATO.

Good effort there. Keep up the good work. Another war before election time without having to redeploy troops is a cinch like this. Forward!

From what I've read, Syria might actually be one of the few places in that area that would be improved if Turkey simply decided to walk in and take over.

Not that it will happen, or that I advocate it. Just sayin.

Well, at least we don't have to worry about Assad's chemical weapon stores, it's pretty clear that they already got stolen, re-processed into derp and are being heavily used by the commenters for that article.

Article 5 of the Washington Treaty (aka NATO, of which Turkey is a member):

"The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence recognised by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.

Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall immediately be reported to the Security Council. Such measures shall be terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security ."

The fark? Are we all reading the same article?

FTFA Erdogan, reacting to six consecutive days when shells fired from Syrian soil have landed on Turkish territory, has warned Ankara will not shrink from war if forced to act.
But his government has also stressed it would be reluctant to mount any big operation on Syrian soil and then only with international support.

Considering the regime's been doing the shooting since the beginning of last year, I'd say it took too long.

Anyway, IMO Turkey is by far the best country to handle this crisis. They have a large, fairly well-equipped army and air force, they border Syria making the supply lines shorter, and most importantly, they're a Muslim country, which should quell most conspiracy theorists in the Middle East who say it's the US or the Jews pulling strings behind the scenes.

Since he isn't president, he's probably not making any decisions about it at all.

But it is too bad that Obama couldn't get the green light from the rest of the Arab community like he did with Libya to start bombing gov't controlled resources via NATO airstrikes. Apparently one civil war was enough for those guys.

Probably someone in Assad's military.

Syria is experiencing some problems similar to what our military experiences in Afghanistan, where the opponent is able to use another nation's territory as a safe haven. In the Afghani case it's Pakistan (but in the Pakistan case, they really don't have control over the territory they claim, which further exacerbates the situation), and in Syria's case, it's Turkey, who does not like Syria and is likely the last leg in the smuggling route for the weapons and supplies reaching Syria's rebels.

One of the things I'm trying to figure out is if there are any metropolitan areas that straddle the Syria/Turkey border, similar to El Paso/Juarez, San Diego/Tijuana, or Laredo/Nuevo Laredo on our border with Mexico. If there are metro areas like this, that can make it really difficult to stop smuggling or to catch people as they cross borders, and it can also make it harder for artillery to know which side of the border they're attacking. It's possible, though unlikely, that they didn't realize they were firing into Turkey if the border is basically a street in the middle of a dense city.
