Telegraph UK says that Turkish Parliament has given green flag to attack targets in Syria following death of its five civilians after Syrian shelling . The mandate is valid upto 1 year of time .


The mandate, valid for one year, was passed by 320 votes in the 550-seat Turkish parliament, it added. Turkey's deputy prime minister, Besir Atalay, said authorising the use of force in Syria is not a declaration of war but is intended as a deterrent. The vote came as Turkey resumed shelling Syrian government military positions on Thursday morning in retaliation for a mortar round which landed over its border killing five of its citizens. Turkish state media said artillery units based in the border town of Akcakale had begun striking targets inside Syria early this morning, and that the attacks were continuing

Well, its kinda self defeating. Just because Turkey says its not an act of war, doesn't mean Syria wont declare it when the tanks and artillery start really doing some damage to Syrian cities.
What happens when Syrian troops start getting killed, will both declare it war then?
Will Turkey start targeting jets that fly close to the border?

Whats the score at the moment.
Syria has downed a Turkish Jet
Syria launched mortar strikes on Turkey.
Turkey replies to mortar strikes with their own strikes.

Anyone who believes Syria WONT declare war the instant Turkey attacks a Syrian city is deluding themselves.

Where does that leave NATO? An attack on one (NATO member) is an attack on all (NATO members). If Turkey attacks first, this does not apply, but Turkey was attacked first, right? Or what?

so the Turks have 5 citizens killed in a random mortar attack which they have no idea who fired it, but they give the okay to attack Syria and kill as many Syrians as needed to retaliate. yeah they don't give a crap about human life do they. this will not go well for the Turks and they will rue the day they approved of such a murdering campaign.

How do they know who launched the mortars? Could the rebels have done it knowing Turkey would retaliate against the government and help the rebels cause?

I was listening to someone on the radio who said it could be rogue generals in the Syrian army who are taking matters into their own hands. It makes no sense for Assad to open up a new front in this war against a NATO country.

Right now NATO members are discussing possible actions I am sure, as is protocol.


This doesn't have the good feeling attached to the past ones, meaning it seems it's taking off more than any of us wanted it too, and I still can't understand the motive of Syria, and feel this is not Syrian in nature.

The whole thing smells of rebel acts or black ops. " Sarah, Smells Baaaaaaaaaaaaad " Ludo from Labyrinth

But hopefully NATO will see it was rebels and curb Turkey a bit.

Good question and you are right part of the agreement is that an attack against one is an attack against all. If one NATO country is attacked the attacker risks being attacked itself by several or even all other NATO countries. Turkey was a attacked first so it would follow that either they will go it alone or others will inevitably get involved. Yikes this doesn't look good.

Syria apologizes for shelling village

I guess that was it. Nothing more to see here in my opinion

Erdogan was such a pacifist when talking about Israeli attack on Gaza.


I suppose muslims are allowed to kill each other in "self-defense".
