Turkey attacks Syria…again

From the Debka files, those guys never miss a thing:

Turkish fighters attack Syrian helicopter near border
DEBKAfileOctober 12, 2012, 2:03 PM (GMT+02:00)

DEBKAfile: In another step towards enforcing a buffer strip inside Syria, Turkish fighters Friday attacked a Syrian helicopter bombing rebel positions in the village of Azmarin near the Turkish border. This attack brought the Turkish Air Force closer to a clash with the Syrian air force over the control of Syrian air space.

I’ll go out on a limb and predict that things will get more interesting AFTER Assad is toast. Salafists will come out of their burrows to rule yet another Middle East country.

Decades ago, my father and I would talk about the Soviet Union and how it seemed impossible for it to fall. Nuclear war seemed the only endgame that had much probability of occurring. Boy were we surprised!

Now the Arab world, simmering with pent up Islamic rage, has exploded into conflagration. To see an ally turn against another ally this quickly makes me believe the situation is so fluid that you can’t rule out anything..

Nukes from Iran? Sure, why not? All alliances shattered and reformed? Sure, why not? WWV? (That’s World War five, yep) Sure, why not?
