) Empty bluff. Only about 12% of the Turkish population wants to get involved in Syria. Not to mention the million(s) of Syrian refugees Turkey is now stuck with permanently.
Assad's plan is to divide the country. All the big cities are in a vertical line on the western side of the country. The Eastern side is all Sunni and Kurd, with the oil wealth in the Kurd part and empty desert in the Sunni part. By partitioning, (and the millions of refugees, internal and external), Assad now has a majority in his part of the country. And Turkey/Jordan are caught holding the bag with millions of permanent refugees to support.
The Kurd state is just another way to torment Turkey for making the mistake of messing with the Alawites.
