"al-CIA-duh" run by Western Intelligence is the biggest threat to Turkey, and the region in the medium to long term, especially if several Arab regimes are converted through the "Arab Spring" into "al-CIA-duh" run countries.
Then the whole thing will be like a vortex which sucks in modern Turkey, presided over by NATO/USA/Israel in a neo-Crusader role.
Turkey's Rumi wisdom would be to keep well clear of this "al-CIA-duh" vortex.
Deonme Erdogan and the AKP may wish to show their usefulness to their Western masters to an extent, in the region, but this particular show of usefulness, together with misplaced....."Sunni nationalism" with recent visits to Egypt, Libya and Tunisia must be tempered with questions of what will transpire if and when "al-CIA-duh" is placed in Damascus, through Turkish backed terrorism, rape, murder, pillage and destruction.
The Syrian government if it has given limited autonomy to the Kurds, have done so out of realism, and the need to appease allies, and reduce the possibility of the Sunni Kurds joining enmasse with the ranks of the opposition...........and not as a diplomatic forefinger at Turkey.
Syria's President apologized for the downing of the Turkish jet for baiting them in their own air-space, which subsequently the Turkish military claims was not downed by the Syrian missiles??!!
Syria potentially could have had excellent relations with Turkey by now, but Deonme Erdogan has decided to play the useful dog of the globalist Jewish elite.
He is not a REAL Turkish leader.

Syrian President Bashar Assad, amid growing unrest, has granted control of parts of northern Syria over to militant Kurds, long branded as terrorists by Turkey, in a provocation that could lead the conflict to break out internationally.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had earlier said that Turkey would not accept an autonomous Kurdish area in Syria, fearing separatist Kurds in Turkey would use it as a safe-haven to launch cross-border attacks.
Late on Thursday Turkey mobilized and deployed tanks and missile batteries on the Syrian border near the Kurdish region, with Erdogan commenting if the Kurds control these areas, “then intervening would be our most natural right.”
Kurdish control of these border areas are an apparent consequence of the chaos of Syria’s internal conflict, in which the US and its allies are sending aid, intelligence, and weapons to the Syrian rebels, despite numerous crimes and ties to terrorist groups.
Turkish military intervention against the Assad regime came close to being a reality back a few months ago when Syria downed a Turkish fighter jet that went into Syrian airspace. Turkey has shown little hesitation to attack its neighbors if they feel their Kurdish threat demands it, as cross-border attacks into Iraq’s Kurdish region in recent months has shown.
If Turkey, a NATO member, involves itself in the Syrian conflict in a direct and belligerent way, it could have far reaching consequences, with possible implications of a US intervention.
