Turkey and Russia both have political leaders who have created wars to boost their popularity. It has worked well for both of them so far.

Since the Turkish leads started their war against the Kurds and just used it to win an election in the last couple month, I'm not sure how they would benefit from starting new trouble with Russia. I think the Russian leaders would have the most to gain over this.

Of course it could be all an honest mistake.

You can use the Force to anticipate and influence the course of events. Knowing saying one word to the right person at the right time can change the course of events that effects the entire galaxy.

Take a local trade dispute and manipulate it to a vast galactic war where you control both sides, creating a wave of fear and nationalism. Instead of seizing power create a situation where people willingly give you absolute power over them.

The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, "I've got responsibilities."
