Turkish crisis over?

Turkey seems to have calmed down, and Danish planes are now flying from Incirlik on missions against ISIS. What exactly happened may never be known, but in all likelihood the Turks were testing the limits. Erdogan is still very dangerous, and determined to either flood Europe with “refugees” or get non-visa travel for Turkish citizens into Europe, which would have the same long-term effect.

The initial Russian stories may have been somewhat exaggerated, but the underlying problems still remain, including concerns about stashing nukes in unstable countries…

Hopefully, with the base seemingly back to normal, this will be the end of it.
