Looks like a collision course between Turkey and Russia?

Now that Erdogan has shown his hand, we'll have to see what the PTB say.

I don't think it's a surprise to anyone who has watched Erdogan rise to power. I don't think it is a stretch to say he started the regime change in Syria. And he has masterfully played the US and Russia to his advantage.

Good map of old Ottoman empire administrative divisions c. 1900.

The kind of map one might find on a wall in Erdogan's bedroom.
