#1 ION BYZANTIUM, TODAY'S ZAMAN > TURKEY'S STAKES IN DANGER AS UNREST RAGES IN SYRIA. Various Perts.

Turkey fears ...

> Affect of unrest on Syria's own domestic KURDISH POPULATION, + ultimately as per TURKEY'S KURDS on the Syria-Turkey border.
> Affect on Thurkey's vital international trade flows which route through Syria.
> LOSS OF ASSAD REGIME + SYRIA = DECISIVE? LOSS + FAILURE OF ALL OF TURKEY'S REGIONAL PROJECTS, INTERESTS WID VARIOUS NEIGHBORING STATES.

Loss of Syria + its Region-stabilizing influence more serious to Turkey than Diplomatic, Geopol brouhahas wid Iran.

* OTOH CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > WHILE MOST OF ALLAH'S STATES [Muslim Nations]STILL PUT AN ALL-OUT EFFORT TO GET [1930's?] 1930 TECHNOLOGY = NUCLEAR BOMBS, THE US IS ABOUT TO PERFECT ITS ABM SYSTEM.

#2 HMMMMM, HMMMM, I have to wonder iff the Turko-Syrian KURDS will in time become akin to the "SOUTH KURILES" issue between Russia + Japan, i.e. SCO-CSTO BFF RUSSIA + CHINA as per Russ isolating or containing "strategic partner" China from North China Sea + NORPAC, ARCTIC NAVAL, TRADE ROUTES???
