Turks are idiots, let them stop to give weapons to these stupid, not useful and harmful rebels and they stop to shoot at them automatically.
Tuks were always idiot and will be always idiots. All their stupid wars were lost and have caused only damadges for all possible countries.

There is 3 options...

1-incirlik Air Base is located about 7.5 miles east of Adana-Turkey...Shahap-3 ballistic missiles have a 1300 km range..Iran may target incirlik air base.

2-Or iran may target NATO's missile defense shield in Turkey !

3-iran missles may be able to hit USA by 2020

They just do not get it, these are not long range missiles but are very accurate. Turkey is not interested in killing civilians only the people firing into Turkey, as far as Israel, well Turkey and Israel are allies so if Syria fires on Israel then Turkey has another option for helping Israel. Israel and Egypt are not enemies either and I believe Egypt is working with Iran to stop to conflict with the Palestinians.

All possibles however Iran striking Turkey a NATO member would be beyond foolish it would be outright suicide.

how realistic that Syria has intention of firing Patriot Rockets into Turkey?

Turkey is warmongering right from start of Syria conflict. this is not first time Turkey asked nato to help.

I think it is all about deepning this conflict and bring Syria conflict into an other level which means intensifying war and more bloodshed.

No chance Syria doesn't have Patriot missiles and they are defensive missile interceptors anyway.
Syria has Scuds.
Try reading a little.

I think syria has some of the S-300 in place now, remember them shooting down the Turkish jet and the comment was that Turkey wanted to see how good their anti-aircraft systems were? But who knows they were also supposed to be used ones not new.
