Now this gets interesting ... Kurdish YPG now siding w/ Syrians against Turkey.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-43107013

. . . .


'The YPG cleared Islamic State (IS) group fighters from wide swathes of Syria.
Turkey is trying to oust the YPG from Afrin because it sees the group as an extension of the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has fought for Kurdish autonomy in Turkey for three decades.
The YPG denies any direct military or political links with the PKK.'

. . . .

Long story short, Syria is retaking Afrin.

3. Apparently Erdogan wants to get the old Ottoman Empire back together.

Referring to the days of the Ottoman Empire, Erdo─čan went on:
"Those who think that we have erased from our hearts the lands from which we withdrew in tears a hundred years ago are wrong.

"We say at every opportunity we have that Syria, Iraq and other places in the geography in our hearts are no different from our own homeland. We are struggling so that a foreign flag will not be waved anywhere where adhan is recited.

"The things we have done so far even greater attempts and attacks the coming days, inshallah ."

I guess he's looking for more of that good old lebensraum.
