On FPF #460, I discuss the chaotic and dangerous situation unfolding in Idlib, Syria. Turkey is backing the al-Qaeda linked rebels who remain in opposition to the Syrian government. The Syrian Army – along with its Russian ally – are attempting to retake the Idlib Province of Syria. Turkey is invading Syria in an attempt to prevent this from happening. Turkey has asked the US and European allies to get involved and establish a no-fly zone over Idlib. The no-fly zone would result in the US shooting down Russian planes. NATO rejected Turkey’s demands. Now Turkey is allowing some of the 3 million refugees – who settled in Turkey during the Syrian War – to cross into Europe. Turkey hopes this will pressure the European powers to act in Syria.
