Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has gone hysterical over the defeats inflicted on the insurgents in Syria, a political analyst tells Press TV.
According to public surveys, only 5 to 10 percent of the Turkish people support their government's policies towards Syria.
This comes as tensions have been running high between Syria and Turkey, with Damascus accusing Turkey -- along with Saudi Arabia and Qatar -- of backing a deadly insurgency that has claimed the lives of many Syrians, including large numbers of security and army personnel.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley, an author and historian from Washington, to further discuss the issue.
