Not surprised Turkey downed an aircraft since they themselves are harboring and vetting terrorists into Syria
nor will I be if NATO forces two fronts against Russia by another push in Syria in the form of no-fly/safe zones
cold war is getting warmer.
Most of Assad's support is from the People of Syria.

The "terrorist" in Turkey are Syrians. And NATO does not need any fronts against Russia, it has Russia economic balls in a vice. So NATO has no
more interest Syria now then is did over the last couple of years. And Assads support is not the people of Syria, it is mostly Iranian, Hezbollah and
Lebanese militias. Assads support in Syria comes from part of the capital and some of the coastal providences. The Kurds have an enclave in the
North. The foriegh jihadist support comes from the Iraqi border area (of course this now two camps fighting Assad, the rebels and each other). And
the traditional rebels support comes from the rest of/ bulk of Syria.
So you have the remnants of the Syrian army, Iranians, Hezbollah, Lebanese Militas, and loyal Syrian Militias figthing for Assad with littel command
and control. You have two different jihadist movements fighting each other, the rebels, Assad and the Kurds on occasion. You have the rebels who are
fighting two jihadist movements and Assad, and you have the Kurds who fight anybody who comes near them.
If the Syrian people had supported Assad then the so would have the military and the rebels would have been crushed over night. I would not be
suprised at some point to see Turkey just roll in create a safe zone in the the border areas like it used to do with Iraq on occasion.
