There is already much bloodshed. The rebels do not have airpower, and are suffering because of that fact. Turkey could provide clear and organized leadership, along with air and naval units that could repel and counterattack, the criminal raids of TentMan on his own people.
Turkey is doing a cool thing. They are Muslim helping Muslim. This is much better than Western intervention.
Allahu Akbar and godspeed brave people of Libya

Seriously doubt this is true. The Turks have nothing to gain by doing this and im sure Russia would insist that they stay out of it as well.

If there was a move into Libya it would be under the auspices of NATO, of which Turkey remains a key member.
