i've heard opinions to the note that Syria and Russia are in this one together. Note how the Syrians can shoot down a Turkish jet or fire into Turkey, and the Turks' response is just some complaints, no use of excessive force. Mind you, Turkey could overrun Syria in a week. So in fact a Turkey-Israel reconciliation is helping the anti-Syria axis. I'm not sure if it's Israel's wish to attack Syria or not, but the West + Turkey + Israel are in better position to do so now.
