FORGET WHETHER ANY OF IT WAS INTENTIONAL...:

Turkey and Saudi Arabia may launch ground operations against the Islamic State group in Syria (Associated Press, Feb. 13, 2016)

Turkish media are quoting Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu as saying his country and Saudi Arabia may launch ground operations against the Islamic State group in Syria.

After taking part at a security conference in Munich, Cavusoglu said Saudi Arabia was "ready to send both jets and troops" to Turkey's Incirlik airbase.

"Turkey and Saudi Arabia may launch an operation (against IS) from the land," Saturday's edition of the Yeni Safak pro-government newspaper quoted him as saying.

...if someone told you the President had the Alawites, Russians, Turks, Arabs and Shi'a fighting ISIS for us, while we put no American lives in harm's way and reduce defense spending, you'd hail him as a genius. And if this were 9/12, you'd say it was the outcome most devoutly to be wished : the Middle East fighting out the Near War with the Far War all but forgotten.
