Working with the UN, NATO, etc on those wars, so that would be, by definition, not rogue. Also, most of the military activity was humanitarian missions, not wars, but nice try. You maybe fooled two or three people for five seconds or so.

Turkey-Syria: The Syrians apologized for the mortar round that landed in Turkey and killed five civilians. Turkey's parliament on 4 October voted 320-129 to grant the government the authority to deploy Turkish armed forces to foreign countries in the next year, meaning Syria. Turkish artillery continued to shell Syrian installations near the Tel Abyad border crossing point for a second day. The UN Security Council condemned the Syrians "attack."   The US State and Defense Departments called the Turkish response "appropriate." 

Comment: One might be justified in thinking that two days of retaliatory shelling...
