Giorgio Cafiero of Foreign Policy in Focus discusses how Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan’s support for Syria’s rebellion has alienated Turkey’s own religious minorities; how Syrian President Assad uses the Kurds to retaliate and stir up trouble for Turkey; US interest in realpolitik, not humanitarian relief, in Syria; how a Sunni-dominated government in Syria would tilt regional power toward Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood, marginalizing Iran; why Syria’s rebels should have used nonviolent opposition instead of taking up arms; and the Iraqi refugees in Syria returning home – and not because Iraq is suddenly prosperous and safe.
