    What could possibly go wrong between Russia and a NATO country hell bent on genocide?
    Rumor Control. Russia is setting up a no fly zone over Northern Syria!!!

    Is Turkey going to use the S-400 to counter a Russian no-fly zone?

    And if this shit wasn't already worse enough, Turkey might protentially invoke the NATO treaty:
    The situation could force the NATO member's allies to get involved, according to Luxembourg's Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn. "Article five of the NATO pact states that all other countries must help to defend a country if it is attacked," Asselborn said, describing the situation as "extraordinary."

    Turkey's been a huge douche for sometime, now. I actually wouldn't mind Russia, disguised as Syria, giving them a bloody nose and NATO not coming to their defense. They're only in NATO for their geopolitical significance and nothing more.

    This. They'll be told it's not an attack on their territory and thus not a valid excuse.

    especially one inhabited by kurds, why the outrage!
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    I mean the crowd of people with smartphones kinda gives it away.

    Also the fact that they’re not shooting at anything.

    Doesnt change the fact that the Kurds are being bombed, and I posted video of an execution on the previous page.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't matter (anymore). 9/11 pushed the limit on that one. Art 5 was invoked, though no country/organized military force attacked the U.S.. Art. 5 now has been bended to include "terror attacks" and "sabotage".

    So as soon as a single bullet lands on Turkey territory, they've been "attacked" and at least demand that the defensive pact be enacted.

    I disagree. 9/11 did not change Art.5. It was ruled as an attack on US soil, which it undoubtedly was. There wasn't even a need to bend the rules to cover terrorist attacks. Just have a look at Article 5:
    “The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.

    Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall immediately be reported to the Security Council. Such measures shall be terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security.”
    You may notice an absolute lack of words like nation, nation-state or country. Now you will say that the word parties here means nations, which is true. but at no point does the article mention that the attacker is a party or nation or anything.

    Source: https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/topics_110496.htm

    That source explains what mutual assistance means:

    With the invocation of Article 5, Allies can provide any form of assistance they deem necessary to respond to a situation. This is an individual obligation on each Ally and each Ally is responsible for determining what it deems necessary in the particular circumstances.

    This assistance is taken forward in concert with other Allies. It is not necessarily military and depends on the material resources of each country. It is therefore left to the judgment of each individual member country to determine how it will contribute. Each country will consult with the other members, bearing in mind that the ultimate aim is to “to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area”.

    At the drafting of Article 5 in the late 1940s, there was consensus on the principle of mutual assistance, but fundamental disagreement on the modalities of implementing this commitment. The European participants wanted to ensure that the United States would automatically come to their assistance should one of the signatories come under attack; the United States did not want to make such a pledge and obtained that this be reflected in the wording of Article 5.
    Emphasis mine. Now look at the bolded bits. The first one means that if Turkey successfully invokes Article 5 (which requires the other members to agree), everyone else can decide to only provide thoughts and prayers. Turkey may not be able to invoke Article 5, as their war fails to secure the North Atlantic area. And then the wording of Article 5 itself is such that no other NATO member must react at all.

    But that question seems moot when Trump ordered sanctions on Turkey today.

    So, given all you cited there (and yes, I was wrong, it was right there from the beginning, 9/11 just made it clear), what makes you think that this wouldn't make a case for Turkey to invoke Art. 5, once any of the other forces defending themselves from the Turkish invasion "attack" Turkish forces? Because I nowhere see a passage with some kind of exclusion like "except said NATO member attacked first"
