Turkey unlikely to wage a war against Syria

(People's Daily Online)

16:44, October 23, 2012

Whether the limited military conflict along Syrian-Turkish border will evolve into a war has drawn wide attention around the world.

Some media outlets said that Turkey has always been supporting Syrian rebels to resort to regional and international community to overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad and resolve Syrian crisis ultimately. However, the goal has not yet been realized until now and the seesaw battle still remains between Syrian government forces and opposition. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that a war should be waged to finish the regime of Bashar.

Are Syria and Turkey pushed to the brink of war? Some media outlets believe that Turkey’s harsher stance on Syria merely aims to send a "tough" signal to the Syrian regime, which indicates that Turkey will not wage a war against Syria. However, others believe that Turkish policies on Syrian crisis are based on the intended purpose of overthrowing the current Syrian regime so the relations of the two countries cannot be retrieved. With authorization of Turkish parliament on use of force and support of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the war is most likely to break out.
