With Erdogan waging an Islamist proxy war on China, Kurds, Assad, Sisi, Netanyahu via Al Qaeda affiliates, Army of Conquest, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, it is no wonder Syria and Egypt both applied to join the China-led SCO in June this year.Then this...
Thus Syria and China both share threats from the Army of Conquest that is attacking Assad and China’s Xinjiang. As Peter Lee noted, it is also worrying for the Chinese that when Palestinian President Abbas visited Erdogan’s new presidential palace in January 2015, the honor guards of 16 soldiers dressed in historical warrior costumes included a Uyghur.
A new article reported that 3,500 Uyghurs are settling in a village near Jisr-al Shagour that was just taken from Assad, close to the stronghold of Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) that is in the Turkey-backed Army of Conquest.

GEEZ! Everytime I think I have a handle on the players in this conflict, I come to the realization that this is a big rotting, puss filled onion with many layers.
If China (and I realize that its a HUGE IF) does enter the conflict on the side of Russia/Syria/Iran then all bets are off.
But the bigger issue to me is Turkey.
If even half of what I've read is true then they need to be dealt with before we make another move in the region. Again I point to the CENTCOM Commander and the SecState. Its time for them to go public on the real issues with this fight.
