    The tide has turned. Once Daesh turns on Turkey all hell will break loose. Right now, Turkey is facilitating Daesh in an attempt to discourage them from causing havoc in Anatolia, but once they decide to spread north there is not much Ankara can do. World powers must step in and create the new Anatolian order. Kurdistan and Western Armenia will be restored soon after.
