But I don't think that is what this is all about, to me this is about Turkey wanting to expand beyond its borders. They have been playing multiple sides, and I think they have now found themselves in a bind now.
I would have to dig around, but I have read several stories about Erdogan want to expand, if I remember he has some grand plans about reviving the Ottoman EmpirePlease explain to us how are they trying to expand their borders? They have many troops near the border which is self explanatory as it is a conflict zone but in Syria they assist Syrian rebels groups and are not trying to annex any Syrian territory. They don't want another refugee influx and also don't want armed Kurdish groups operating freely near their border.
So it is not true they are trying to expand their borders. Israel is the only country in the region expanding their borders which they haven't even declared yet.
As for Turkey, this Idlib situation isn't good for them and there's not much they can do. Turkey's allies want to see Erdogan gone and are quite satisfied with this situation. It has affected his reputation(among Turks) badly. Turkey now can only facilitate transfer of Syrian refugees back to Syria and then work on multi layered air defense/missile defense systems since they lack heavily in that regard.
