In the name of a political solution: Turkey requests a Syria no-fly zone & US raids to kill Syrian forces!

"... "Right from the beginning ... we would say 'yes'," Erdogan told NBC when asked if Turkey, a NATO member that shares its longest border with Syria, would support a no-fly zone or American soldiers on the ground.A no-fly zone to prohibit Syrian military aircraft from hitting rebel targets has been previously mentioned by US politicians as one of the options the US could utilise in a bid to put pressure on Assad.
But setting up a no-fly zone would require US air raids and possibly ground forces, heightening the risk of casualties.
There is little chance the US would undertake that anytime soon, US security officials have said...."
