China is going to strengthen its military role in Syria.In the aftermath of the fake coup, Turkey does seem to be moving away from Europe/NATO and toward Russia.
I was expecting this to happen eventually, but it is astounding that it has happened, even so.
The US/Israel/Saudi effort to overthrow the Syrian government has given rise to the military alliance of Russia/Syria/Iran/China, with more Syrian allies to come. This may be the motive for the departure of Turkey from NATO.
