My observation of Turkey is that they may seem to be harbouring too many memories of the ancient times when they were the great conquerors. I am wondering what are planning to achieve by some of their recent intentions. They seem to have a desire to go up against Russia to what effect I don't know. They shot down the Russian a did a bit of posturing and now they want to intervene in Syria which could possibly cause a confrontation with Russia. They are seeming to want to start a conflict with Russia and draw Western countries In the war, Maybe they want to start the next world war.
