    I'm glad there are still some Countries like Turkey that are willing to stand up for themselves when their citizens get attacked, and murdered... Under Obama, the American Taxpayer's will probably be forced to write another check, and apologize for American citizens getting murdered by Terrorists in our Embassies.

    Anybody curious as to why Syria would take on the additional pain in the ass that is a cross border war with a bigger and better armed nemesis?

    Akcakale is one of the bigger border crossings into Syria
    On Syrian side it's a strategic area because the middle part of Northern Syria is vast empty space.
    FSA brought the area (+crossing) under control around 2 weeks ago and since then there's still fighting going on in the area.

    Syrian cross-border salvos send message to Turkey
    Oct 8,`12 -- Syria's cross-border attacks on Turkey in the past week look increasingly like they could be an intentional escalation meant to send a clear message to Ankara and beyond, that the crisis is simply too explosive to risk foreign military intervention.
