Sounds like Erdogan is trying to the put the band back together again.
Interesting choice of wording - to fundamentalist Sunni Muslims the Turks are still interlopers after just short of a thousand years, the Arabs understandably feeling that they have first claim on orthodoxy. That’s carrying a grudge a long time.
Get the US out of the Middle East and let the Muslims engage in their unholy wars. No American should die in the service of any Islamic country.
No. It is because the Arabs saw the Ottomans as a colonial empire. That’s why they rebelled against it from the 1700s to 1918
Russia's interventions and entanglements have no end in sight, and now they're getting stretched thin in a worldwide economic downturn which has made the massive increase in oil supply worse by the decline in demand.

In the event of US involvement, the only way to fly would be to use drones and hunt down every moving thing without mercy, telling the rest of the world to go be fruitful and multiply, just not in those words. We should first test the method by annihilating the muzzie terrorists operating in Nigeria.
Iran's got Yemenis going to Libya.
Arab spring still destabilizing the region.
