Turkey sends helicopter over Syrian airspace

Turkey has sent a Cobra helicopter to do reconnaissance over Syria to ensure that a Kurdish state is not coming into being during the chaos in Syria - or that at least it won't come right up to Syria's border (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
The helicopter with a commander and several military troops onboard entered Syrian airspace to conduct a reconnaissance flight over the two states' borderlines and to examine Syrian border regions, Turkish Kanal 7 reports.

Turkish TV channels are providing full media coverage of Syrian refugees' departure to Turkey, encouraging the Syrian border dwellers to take refuge in neighboring Turkey.

A report published in the Turkish daily Posta on Thursday said Turkey is mulling over sending its military forces into Syrian soil to establish a “buffer zone” should the recent turmoil in Syria skyrocket into a refugee crisis that would pose a threat to Ankara.
What's that you say? The article doesn't mention the Kurds? No, it doesn't because Iran also has a Kurdish minority and this report came from Iran's Press TV. But look at a map:

Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran demand contiguous borders.

But its OK to break up the world's only Jewish State so "Palestine" isn't a country in two separate pieces.

What could go wrong indeed
