“When Syria falls to the Jihadists Turkey will be next. Hmm Libya, Egypt, Syria, Turkey- thats a big arc of jihadi Al Quaeda countries.”
What country is to the West of Turkey? A strong country? Oh, Greece, you say - can Greece withstand an invasion from Turkey? The next one West is Italy - again, not a problem you say? Austria, Germany, etc. The ragheads are still very miffed that they were kicked out of Europe ca. 1400; they have indicated they want it back. With Obama in charge of the U.S. defense, I think I’d bet on on the ragheads.
And to the East is Georgia and Armenia and Azerbaijan. Not all that stable.
