Turkey’s latest incursion into Syria to attack the Kurds is only the beginning of what could be a more serious issue at hand. 2 days ago the United States loaded Patriot anti-missile batteries onto a ship in Germany and sent them to Israel. Now Russia has deployed 2 more S-400 anti-missile defense systems to Syria. Both the United States leaders as well as Russian and even Syrian leaders and trying to get Turkey to back down on their offensive in Northern Syria against the Kurds, but President Erdogan shows no signs of backing down.
Russia has really put themselves in an awkward position trying to defend Syrian President and the Syrian people against outside aggression and at the same time making alliances with the enemy with hopes of destabilizing the NATO alliance. The US on the other hand has reached out to the Kurds finally to help them to achieve their own national interest in carving out a separate state within a State. Also offending a NATO member.
Israel on the other hand not a NATO member is ally to the US and Russia and strong supporter of the Kurdish people causing the fragile renewed agreement with Turkey to crumble as well. So one must wonder with both Russia and the US sending in air defense systems are they expecting a fight with their ally Turkey which could ultimately turn into a much larger regional war even causing Iran to brought into conflict.
