In recent weeks with Russian air support, Syrian troops have retaken large swaths of territory from ISIS, Al Qaeda, & other terrorist fighters. The Syrian Army has even begun approaching the Euphrates River east of Aleppo, which would effectively cut off ISIS from its supply lines leading out of Turkish territory.  From there, Syrian troops would move north, into the very “safe zone” the US & its Turkish partners have long sought but have so far failed to establish within Syria’s borders. Once Syrian troops retake this territory, the prospect of the West ever making an incursion into Syria, holding territory, or compromising Syria’s territorial integrity would be lost forever. The endgame is at hand, & only the most desperate measures can hope to prevent Russia & Syria from finally securing Syria’s borders. Turkey’s provocation is just such a measure.
