How long will it take for Iran to respond to Turkey.
Syria and Iran are allies remember.
Iran knows Turkey would stomp its turbans in the sand dunes. Iran wont be helping anyone defend jack when its a large Nation state. Then again the looney Arab dictators are suicidal to a point most times.
Turkey would get defeated badly if it had a war against Syria and Iran at the same time. Iran and Syria both know this fact.
I don't think so...
Turkey can take Syria in a week....all they need to do is roll over the border and Assad will run...that's it..game over.
Iran will not attack for a lost cause....they will simply reinforce Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Turkey, if it doe's invade Syria will become a new target for the Jihadi's who aren't affiliated with anyone.
Does Turkey want to burden itself with overseeing Syrian restructuring after the fact...with all its unforeseen consequences ?
I don't think you realise the number of soldiers Assad has right now. They number in the hundreds of thousands. In the event of war those numbers would rise. You are also forgetting the chemical and biological warheads Syria has with means of delivery.
Iran has stated over and over again that they would protect and fight alongside Syria should they get into a war.
It's endgame. NATO can't continue milking the cow without getting into a regional war. We are talking casualties in the range of a day in WW2. We are talking thousands per day. Is NATO willing to commit to that?
