#1 Here's how it works: The SSA accepted that the SDF was part of it. Therefore Turkey did not cross the Kurdish border rather it crossed the normal border of the Syrian State. Russia supports the territorial integrity of their ally the Nation of Syria. Russia doesn't need to support or not support elements of the Syrian regime so it's no change in Russia's position. Syria's army the SAA now considers itself at war with the Turkish invader who has crossed it's world recognized international border with Turkey. Russia will continue to support it's ally Syria.

#2 Does that leave Iran's IRGC neutral or at war with Turkey?

#4 Turkish president Erdogan says they are not afraid and said that the troops of Turkey will keep advancing more into northern Syria, even if the Syrian Arab Army will be joining the SDF and YPG forces at Manbij and Kobani.

#8 Is it too much to hope that Turkey will be stupid and accidentally hit the Russians and piss off Vlad? At this point, I'd enjoy seeing someone stomp the life out of Turkey.

I seem to recall that Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet some months ago, and the only response was something like a cold Russian shoulder for six months. But at that point Syria wasn‘t ready to pivot to a new battlefront.
