      It may be too early to tell if these are false flags or if Erdogan is being bitten by his own dogs. At some point, if the terrorists feel boxed-in and with nothing to lose, they may turn on their handlers and blame their handlers for their defeat. That's one of many reasons why it's not a good idea to support terrorism.

      Thank you, Putin and all Russians for fighting terrorists in Syria when NATO countries and its allies were only creating more chaos and destruction.

      jas, you touched at an issue at the vital core of all progressive humanity. I have already declared Putin as the greatest leader and strategic thinker of the past 50 years and Andrei Lavrov in the same company as Andrei Gromyko in his reading of global issues and geostrategic developments and processes. Putin not only re built Russia with very modest resources after the Soviet collapse; he has transformed a unipolar global imperium castrated by a bellicose, power drunk hegemon into a polyvalent, multipolar universe of shared commitments, and in that regard re launched Russia into the center stage of global power play to the chagrin of implacable war mongers. As he and Russia strengthen and stabilize the Syrian peace mechanism Erdogan, the butcher of Ankara, is steadily creating the condition of civil war in Turkey and the prospect of his favored terrorists turning against him. You put it very eloquently.
