Turkey has imposed an arms embargo against Syria for its brutal crackdown on the country’s uprising, and it has stopped a Syrian-flagged ship, the prime minister said Friday.

Syria will be used, as an example to Israel, by Turkey.
Soldiers will be on the border, within a month.

I am almost wondering if the tension between the EU/Israel and Turkey is a ruse. By Turkey distancing itself from the West, it allows it to take on Syria without looking like a pawn of NATO, but a new regional leader.
The news of this embargo for some reason hasn't become major news in US MSM, but we of course are not the target audience. It will be picked up and ran with by Middle Eastern news media, where it will have more of an impact.
The big story in all of this? Turkey is asserting its dominance of the region and Iranian weapons will no longer get to Syria and even technically Hezbollah, which depends on that logistics network.

Probably just Turkey trying to get in the EU for 2013 by hasslin Syria. Who knows, we might even demand they go to war with them. One of the few countries who could probably afford a war right now, and probably a good thing for the EU, we get massive industrialized nation with a modern military right on the border with Asia.
Sucks to be Syria. Oh well.

Good. As far as i am concerned hezbollah, hamas and any other terrorist organization needs to be utterly destroyed. Terrorism is the weapon of a coward and i spit on anyone using those tactics to spread fear.
