IT LOOKS LIKE A UFO. In fact, it is a supersonic intercontinental delivery system carrying nuclear missiles that, on their own, travel many times the speed of sound.

When it comes to Syria, Turkey could sing Meghan Trainor's tune, All About That Bass, but with its own lyrics: "It's all about the Kurds, 'bout the Kurds, not ISIS."
