A coalition has finally been formed against Syira... but in rhetoric only.
After Turkey called on NATO for assistance, NATO officially condemned – "in the strongest terms" – the downing of a Turkish fighter jet by Syria over the Mediterranean Sea in what Syria claimed was its airspace. Syria later fired at another Turkish plane involved in the rescue effort.
Article five of NATO's charter treaty clearly states: "An armed attack against one or more... shall be considered an attack against them all."
Is now the time for NATO to act? Erin is joined by former Secretary of Defense William Cohen to go over NATO's options.
