      The United States is quietly waking Erdogan, but they themselves are not interfering. They are waiting for when and who will hit the “partner" first - Turkey or Russia.

        Turkey tried to take advantage of a convenient moment in the civil war for power capture - i.e. occupation - parts of the adjacent territory for the formation there, ideally, of a separate buffer state controlled by it, in the worst case, an analogue of the Afghan or Iraqi Tribal Zone - a special territory that does not submit to Damascus, but is controlled by Ankara.

        But the plan crumbled. The Syrian army managed to find enough strength to stabilize the situation in the rest of the country and begin active operations to clean up Idlib. Barmaley from "rebel groups" hold positions predictably cannot. And the Turks, having the status of as if only observers of the ceasefire, do not have sufficient right to engage in a full-scale battle themselves.

        The result was a serious dead end. Of course, 12 Turkish forces have already been entered into the disputed zone for complete control over it. But to abandon everything, after the two Turkish “peacekeeping” operations declared successful, is fraught with very serious internal political problems already for the stability of the power of Erdogan himself.

        Because of what, official Turkey is forced to go on principle, relying on escalation. Over the past two weeks, the Turkish army deployed about 1000 units of armored vehicles, including at least 300 tanks, into the disputed territory of Syria. Bringing their number there to 700 cars. Also, at least three mechanized infantry brigades are entering the conflict zone.

        On the other hand, the very first major skirmishes with CAA resulted in unexpectedly high losses. For a week, the Syrians knocked out from the Turks 5 to 8 tanks, at least 3 armored personnel carriers and (according to unconfirmed reports) one self-propelled gun battery. Ankara’s hysterical appeal for help to NATO did not find understanding in the Alliance. Attempts to use combat aircraft have already been twice blocked by airplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces, which successfully prevented the Turks from entering Syrian airspace. And without air support, even the Turkish army on land, as it turned out, had no chance of victory. Or Erdogan will have to declare war on Syria officially and start mass mobilization at home.

        In general, a dead end, the key to which is held by Moscow. Here Erdogan is trying to somehow "agree" with her. Bluffing a willingness in the alternative to switch to large-scale hostilities. But most likely he will get "you won’t get off with tomatoes." By the way, Russian customs has already notified Ankara that it has chosen an agreed quota of 170 thousand tons of tomatoes and may not try to import more into the Russian Federation this year.. And without the permission of Moscow, albeit not very quickly, however, the Turks will still have to retreat from the occupied Syrian territories. With all the ensuing negative consequences for Erdogan personally.

        Is this the movement of machinery in Turkey?
        The article states that the multiple launch rocket systems deployed to the border are deployed at positions along the border.
        And the special forces were transferred precisely to the territory of Syria.

      Well, for them now the most important thing is that the Sultan does not jump off the hook of the war, as the last time he shot down an airplane. Then he urgently convened NATO, in the hope (and they assured him even before the plane was shot down that NATO would help) for help, NATO said that it was a Russian-Turkish grater. Erdogan realized that he had been thrown (used to being the only one who could throw him), asked for forgiveness from Russia, and thereby showed the cookie to the geldings.
      Now the geldings will take into account their mistakes (they ainul Erdogan too early the last time, wait for real military operations, and only then they will throw the Sultan).
      That's all I think, really Sultan last lesson did not go for the future? And if so, why?
      It seems to me, relatively speaking, that we proposed to Erdogan to become Ataturk - to develop within his own borders. And the geldings offered to become Sultan Suleiman. The offer of geldings, apparently larger than Erdogan's pillow.
      In general, we must pay tribute to the geldings and their Jewish consultants, they selected the psychotype of the head of neo-Ottoman Turkey (the one who will drive Turkey to its end, simultaneously bleeding everything) very well.

        Erdogan has gone very far in every sense. As a result, all his actions can lead Turkey to a deplorable outcome due to Erdogan's adventures.

          because of Erdogan’s adventures.
          That's right, because of the adventures. A modern neo-Ottoman project is an American product and an appropriate contractor is needed to implement this project. Well, Atatürk would not have implemented this project, since he understood its consequences for Turkey, so the Atatürk antipode is needed. And they found him - Erdogan. This one will not be slammed, but will drive the “neo-Ottoman horses” into battle, just like Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (it seems that the film was not in vain to be shot - to give the Turks a drive to think less and dream more). So they rushed off, in the next adventure.

      Good day Nastya. hi This means that Turkey is preparing to get involved in a serious way.
      And remember our dialogue with you about achieving victory in Syria and what can be considered a victory in general. Even the old opponents are not defeated, but new ones appear, stronger than the former. Here is such a "victory" in reality. hi

          Nastya, victory cannot be in the wording - it was. Otherwise, I’ll ask, where did it go? And there can be one more. Otherwise, how many are there then?
          Or the Reichtag is taken and the surrender is signed. Well, or as in the Czech Republic, the entire territory is under control, state. authorities operate normally throughout the territory, and people live a peaceful life. This is it Victory is the achievement of stated political goals. One, big, common.
          And in your interpretation of the victory, which was, there was only the smallest detail - to defeat in Idlib, for a start, Turkey. Why to start? Because the United States promises not to send its soldiers to Idlib, however, few expect this. But they do not promise not to inflict air strikes, which is exactly what can be expected. Answer yourself (I need) what forces you are going to defeat Turkey to begin with. Good luck, Nastya. hi

              You have a logical error Nastya. If in your opinion
              no one is going to win Turkey
              then you never you cannot even achieve complete victory by celebrating local victories at least 120 times. After taking every village or intersection or something. Quantity, in this case, does not replace quality.
              Syria is still occupied - this is a fact.
              As long as there is occupation, there can be no victory - this is a fact. In vain you rest.

              PS I do not write for the pros or cons, at least how many of them will instruct me. I have my point of view and logically uphold it exactly until someone else, again logically, reinforcing the arguments with examples (for example: Syria is still occupied - this is a fact.) Does not convince me of the opposite. I want to get critical thinking from as many participants of the VO site as possible, and not earn pluses. hi

        This is not a new strong enemy, but the old one, which is behind those terrorist organizations which were knocked out from all over Syria and taken to Idlib, and now they will finish it too, since the Syrians are fighting on their land, and the Turks will die on a stranger, and it will be like with Chechnya, then they also said that it is impossible to restore order, and there will be a victory, Ukraine also caught a lot of equipment, so what? And here the army is regular with the aviation of the Russian Federation and you don’t have to hide behind a PMC mask like in Ukraine. The Turks will go on the attack on the defense of the Syrians and burn all the equipment with the Pturms, since the Turks do not have such experience to storm the cities like the Syrians

    within NATO, the transfer of intelligence to the Turkish military is of paramount importance
    Now the United States will try to push into the Russian and Turkish units in Syria using all available methods. It is a pity that Erdogan does not see obvious threats behind his ambitions. Last time, he not only “escaped with tomatoes”, but also found himself in a significant economic +.

    Turks always got along with igil, annusra and other smaller jihadists. Recruits, trade, financing, treatment and recreation. In fact, Turkey (Erdogan) is the main accomplice of terrorists in Syria. But everyone turns a blind eye to this, as well as to the countries that helped jihadists in general. Also, everyone does not care about the number of interventionists in Syria. If you act in principle, then the Turks must also be bombed, because they crossed all reasonable borders in Syria. But the reality is ugly, and Russia cannot afford it because of economic ties and insufficient forces in the region. So the opinion of the Turks will be taken into account, and the military operation will obviously be slowed down.

    Will not help. The Turks have two exits - either a full-fledged deployment of troops - and this is an official war with Syria, or withdrawal from Syria. 12 thousand plus half a spoon of special forces for that. to fully control the province is not enough. The calculation was that the Syrians did not have enough strength to clean the Idlib from the Barmales - but they did. Now the Turks are at an impasse - you cannot directly intervene - they have the status of "observers", Syria demonstratively does not need their help - clearing the province, you can’t leave either - the opposition will gobble up it.

    Erdogan “reared” against Putin after he did not support him on the Libyan issue. Erdogan began to transfer his armed forces there, and the whole "gathering" in Europe, decided - only peace agreements between the parties and sanctions will be imposed for suppliers of weapons and military force to Libya.
    Having received a bummer in Libya, Erdogan climbed into Idlib.
    He did not get a single victory, which he loudly promised from the rostrum in parliament. Assad is not displaced, the issue with the Kurds is frozen, it did not work to enter Libya.
    Now Erdogan is like a rat in a corner.

    Have you forgotten which oil flow to Turkey went, and the “humanitarian aid” back?
    5 years later. The son of Erdogan, the loot is over.
