Erdogan wags terror dog in Syria

Various news sites are reporting that Turkish fighter jets have attacked a terrorist convoy across the border in Syria.

At first blush this seems quite a turnaround for Turkey, whose political elite has actively nourished the Syrian rebels thus far. Has there been a change of heart?

No, Erdogan is merely borrowing a well-thumbed page from Netanyahu's playbook; whenever the flames of domestic politics are getting uncomfortably warm, distract the populace with a brazen diversionary tactic.
