Turkey is a Sunni nation. They are mortal enemies of the Shia Persians. The Kurds are also Sunni. Putting Turkey in northern Syria puts them right in the middle of Iran's pipeline of men and supplies to Assad. And Russia, which is trying to foster better relations with Turkey, will now have to walk a tight rope of keeping Shiite Assad in power while appeasing the Sunni Turks, who will be stifling the Shiite Persians. It's a shit show for all involved. We'll be sitting back laughing.
