In this photo released by the Turkish Presidency Press Office, Turkish President Abdullah Gul, center, seen during a meeting with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, left, and Chief of Staff Gen. Necdet Ozel in Ankara, Turkey, Monday, Aug. 27, 2012. In 2003, Turkey barred U.S. forces from opening a northern front in the war against Iraq in a stunning rebuff to Washington that raised questions about whether the politically powerful Turkish military had undercut a civilian-led initiative to help the Americans. As Turkey and its allies today mull possible intervention in Syria, the Turkish military, broken as a political force, is likely to move in step with the civilian commanders it once viewed with disdain.
