Turkey as a foreign policy challenge?

Thomas Seibert argues in The National that Turkey

will be one on the foreign policy challenges the new U.S. administration must deal with. He writes: “With the Turkish-Syrian border in turmoil, Ankara is likely to press the new US administration for more help to support the opposition to the Syrian president, Bashar Al Assad.”

Seibert writes, “Ankara, which sees Washington as

its most important ally, hopes that after Tuesday’s election, Washington will take a more aggressive approach to the Syrian conflict, which will enter a third year about the time either Mr. Obama or Mr. Romney take the oath of office in January.”

However U.S. reluctance could be a cause for concern.
