As if giving away the location of US secret bases in Syria wasn't crazy enough:

Now Turkey is stepping up its war of words with Germany:

Is there anyone in the West and NATO that Erdogan is not picking a fight with these days? If Erdogan starts a war with Russia in Syria, how does he expect the West to back his aggressive plans for Syria?

If you haven't noticed, surprisingly we're best buddies with Erdogan for the given moment. He even wants to purchase or have a production license for S-400. I guess he'll try to bargain something out of all these tensions, however it might be heading to disaster in a very unpredicted way.
He is more likely to attack West-backed Kurds than Iranians, or Assad forces.

Things are so confusing right now with all the groups and factions in Syria that the winds could easily shift in the most unpredictable and dangerous ways.

Personally I believe Merkel offers more of a threat to Europe at the moment than Erdogan

@Barin1

And that is after they downed a Russian jet and killed a pilot. I wouldn't trust Erdogan any further than I could throw him.

I doubt that anybody here trusts him. Still, if he can be forced to behave by playing his tensions with West, he at least can be contained as a destabilizing factor in Syria.
He got Russian tourists back, and we have lifted embargo on Turkish goods, Turkish stream pipeline project is back and running…still, Erdogan can act in a very unpredictable way and ditch both West and Russia, for, say, Qatar…
