Breaking news from the middle east, especially since Turkey is part of NATO. An attack on (or from) one is an attack on (or from) all NATO members.
If a full war breaks out, so will the Syrian chemical/biological weapons it has deployed. Syria will likely target Israel and once that happens, all bets are off. Damascus will get nuked and the middle east will get set on fire.

If full war breaks out, any of this could happen, yet hopefully not.
