    So Syria's border with Turkey is heating up.
    Iran, seeing her Syrian ally threatened, could order Hezbollah to start trouble with Israel (drone?) at minimal cost to Iran to keep Israel too busy to attack either Syria (as was being reported to be imminent just a few months ago) or Iran directly.
    Perhaps Israel would respond by attacking both Southern Lebanon again and Iran.
    After all, Israel must know any attack against Iran will garner a response from Hezbollah, perhaps Syria and, of course, Iran.
    That could make Syria very vunerable to attack from Turkey (a Nato member) which could end up indirectly (or even directly) allied with Israel.
    Stay tuned.

    Could?

    Perhaps... would?

    Could?

    All the crap that truly IS going on, and you want to speculate about something that has not happened?

    It's a very scarry scenario...especially with Iran and Syria involved...they both have Weapons of Mass Destruction, this could end up a nightmare...as you well know Turkey and Israel were allies until the Gaza Flotilla fiasco...

    But in war, everthing goes!

    I believe that was my point when I posted this thread 3 months ago ... that Israel and Turkey (along with Jordan and Arabia) could end up allies, at least in the short term. :D
