    ISTANBUL/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday his country was "not far" from war with Syria following cross-border attacks this week - words which highlighted the danger that the uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Asaad will drag in its neighbors.

    In a belligerent speech to a crowd in Istanbul, Erdogan warned the Assad government it would be making a fatal mistake if it picked a fight with Turkey.

    The speech followed a Syrian mortar barrage on a town in southeast Turkey that killed five people on Tuesday.

    NATO---- An attack on one is an attack on all.
