              It is curious what Erdogan will say about this at home, although, in principle, the meaning is predictable. If he does not change his mind and does not "turn on the back", then he will soon be "removed" from the authorities, there are still enough people willing.

                You are most likely right. Erdogan's entourage sees that he is now either pan or gone. And clearly ready to substitute and merge. Therefore, they carefully insist on aggression and conflict with Russia. If he is a fool, then he will lead to this, forgetting about who wanted to overthrow him earlier and who warned about it.

                Well done Syrians - fighting the aggressor!

                Why throw slippers? Correct opinion. Edik got involved in a serious problem, on the correct solution of which his political future depends. Immediately in his entourage a "support group" was organized, which is distinguished by aggressive rhetoric towards Russia, and sworn "friends" from Washington have already whispered to him about Turkey's support in preparing the military operation. He is clearly being pushed towards a military solution to the Idlib problem, which will lead to the destruction of normal Russian-Turkish relations at all levels. Russia will not be able to afford to yield to Erdogan's adventures and will respond accordingly. If Edik fails the power option, then tomorrow there will be another sultan in Turkey, who will be more accommodating in relations with the same USA. So, apparently, little by little, interested countries, through the attracted people, are already lining Edika's funeral bed.

              Let me disagree with you. Due to the fact that I live in the Far East, I often read some articles before others. At that time, while the vast majority of readers are still sleeping. Involuntarily it sometimes turns out that you write a comment either first or among the first. Yes, the number of points in this case is much greater than that of others. But not the fact that they will definitely be pluses. Quite often I collect a huge pile of minuses. It's a shame, of course, it happens. Well - how many people, so many opinions.

        I’m wondering, if now Turkish combat aircraft begin to enter enormously into Syrian airspace and iron Syrian positions. What then? Russian VKS will shoot them down? More modern Syrian air defense is concentrated in Damascus and a couple of other large cities. And Idlib does not pose a serious danger to the Turks. So what will Russia do then? Watch the Turks bomb the Syrians in the dust?

          Slightly threw from TG channels in Turkey today:

          The pro-Iranian agency IWN claims that according to its sources, the number of dead Turkish soldiers is 67 people.

          According to journalist Bulent Aydemir on Turkish TV, Ankara asked the United States to deploy the Mount Whitney ship off the coast of Syria to support electronic warfare, but the request was rejected.

          Twitter turned off in Turkey. As part of the fight against the spread of news about the deaths of Turkish troops, the national provider Turk Telekom has closed access to the social network.

          The Turkish National Intelligence Service told the militants to be prepared.
          Why - go on the offensive or lead refugee caravans to Europe - is not specified.

          In the Turkish city of Reyhanli, a rally is held against Syria and Russia.

          An official declaration of war on the Syrian regime will be published by parliament’s decision tomorrow.

          But do not you think that the NATO leadership deliberately ignores Erdogan’s requests to force Turkey back into the stall?

        I agree, the Turks have long been blown away and such a comment by the Foreign Ministry may spur them to get even ...
        IMHO, on the contrary, it was necessary to "run over" on the Turks - "why don't you paint your equipment white and wear white helmets? Why do you ride in columns with bandits? You are to blame, and if you do not take into account the above, there will be more victims - war"

        The situation is very complicated and here it is necessary to carefully settle it precisely with the Turks and not to the detriment of Syria. The Turks, of course, play with fire and can provoke a war, but we also don’t really need it.

That is to survive. And in your opinion - they should have laid down or stood on one knee and fired at the disguised enemy who is in a convenient closed position, who is holding them under direct fire.

      Apparently, the Turks fell into a stupor and try to ask the more militarily experienced Americans how to get out of this dangerous situation. How does this threaten both sides? Turkey, contrary to hopes, is getting more and more drawn into the conflict in Syria. Although yesterday, there were some hopes that the conflict would be “frozen” and transferred to the local phase, without the active intervention of the regular armies of neighboring countries, such as Turkey, Iran and God forbid Russia.

This was a pre-conceived operation with the expectation of further steps by Turkey. Turkey fulfills its role - introduces troops into Idlib, arming the barmaley, helps bleeding the advancing Syrian troops, puts Russia before the choice - either a direct military conflict with the Turkish army (Turkey is a NATO country) and, accordingly, the destruction of friendly relations between Turkey and Russia for a dozen years ahead, as and the collapse of the economies of both countries, and all this for the sake of Khmeimim and Tartus.

Syrians need to be supplied with weapons, trained too, but there will be no sense from this - if these weapons are destroyed by Turkey from the air and artillery. What is the use of the S-300 Syrians standing there for more than a year? Israel is bombing from a long distance. Turkey can do as well.

          The firing points of the Turks in Syria, as well as the columns following the supply routes, are periodically destroyed.
          C300 primarily protect the strategic infrastructure of Syria and have shown their capacity.
          However, a full-fledged layered air defense has not yet been created.
          For this reason, one should not expect "outstanding" results from the Syrian air defense system.

      The Russian Federation seems to be running out of patience to see how the other side of the contract does not fulfill its obligations and is openly blocked with barmales. They made it clear to the presumptuous Turkish Sultan that they would not tolerate this in the future. The next move is after the Turkish master of barmaley. We are waiting for the next act of Marlezon ballet. hi

      Turkish forces came under attack from the Syrian army, as they were among militants advancing on the positions of government forces. Ankara did not notify Moscow of the presence of its troops in this area of ​​Idlib province. This was stated in the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

      And attacks on pro-Turkish forces should be made more frequent. Moreover, it would not hurt to transfer several S-300/400 divisions with Bukami and Carapace to that area, so that Turkish pilots would not even have the idea to fly into the air.

        There, according to agreements, the use of the Turkish Air Force was prohibited. Edik separately asked for his helicopters, they refused to take out the corpses / wounded. And I think, in vain. Although this moment already makes it clear that "our" air defense is deployed.
        __ But as is already known from the Israeli sortie, there is no air defense in southern Syria.
