Turkey sinks deeper in Syrian quagmire with Operation Olive Branch by Al Arabiya

Is Syria becoming a death trap for Recep Tayip Edrogan? Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011, the ‘Turkish sultan’ has committed all possible mistakes with his neighbor, showing a surprising lack of political acumen. He first thought that his old ‘friend’, Bashar al-Assad and his regime would collapse like a pack of cards in a few months. The Turkish president started imagining that the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood would soon assume power in Damascus, like their Egyptian cousins. However, Erdogan soon became disillusioned.
