#2 Since the Patriot system defends against ballistic missiles and since Syria hasn't fired any of those, I think there is a chance the 'syria' angle is just a smokescreen and the reality is that Turkey is worried about ballastic missiles fired by Iran.

#3 The Patriot was orginally an Anti-Aircraft Missle System that was given AMD/BMD capability.

A serious dilemma for the US stems from allegations that Al-Qaeda + other Jihadi Groups are interwined along wid FSA + anti-Assad rebel groups inside Turkey, + being protected + armed by Turkey - ALA "FAST-N-FURIOUS II", IFF TRUE THE SCENARIO EXISTS THAT PATRIOTS, ETC. US ARMS IRONICALLY MAY END UP BEING USED BY TURKEY TO ALSO PROTECT AL-QAEDA + ANTI-US ANTI-ASSAD JIHADIST GROUPS.

Strange bedfellows, indeed.

SYRIA = "LIBYA/GADAFFI II", only potentially much much worse + bloody???
