NATO Issues Statement On Syrian-Turkish Hostilities

Tyler Durden's picture


Via Nato:

As stated on 26 June 20l2, the Alliance continues to closely follow the situation in Syria. In view of the Syrian regime’s recent aggressive acts at NATO’s southeastern border, which are a flagrant breach of international law and a clear and present danger to the security of one of its Allies, the North Atlantic Council met today, within the framework of Article 4 of the Washington Treaty, and discussed the continuous shelling of locations in Turkey adjacent to the Turkish-Syrian border by the Syrian regime forces.


The most recent shelling on 3 October 20l2, which caused the death of five Turkish citizens and injured many, constitutes a cause of greatest concern for, and is strongly condemned by, all Allies.


In the spirit of indivisibility of security and solidarity deriving from the Washington Treaty, the Alliance continues to stand by Turkey and demands the immediate cessation of such aggressive acts against an Ally, and urges the Syrian regime to put an end to flagrant violations of international law.

Thought you'd like to know, but really question why I should even bother trying to tell you 'the truth'.  Suicidal lies are preferred to redeeming truth by the masses in this day and age.

Spartans dwindled and faded due to their strict policy of killing male babies with any deformity, enforced homosexuality during training causing"difficulty" in producing children, and pure attrition from wars.  However the biggest cause of the collapse of the spartans was the refusal to change their tactics in response to changing military tech which rendered the hoplite warrior obsolite.

How long have they been pulling oil out of Baku and moving it through Turkey to supply Europe's ever growing energy needs?

When Standard Oil was a tiny starup, oilmen were already drilling offshore in the Caspian.

Well the shells are coming from Syria so Assad did it!  Never mind that the Fanatical Syrian Army, which is praying to Allah for the Westerners to rid them of Assad so they can set up their caliphate, controls the area by the Turkish border, and that Kurds, who have had plenty of Turkeys for dinner within Turkey, and also bagged some from Iraq and more recently from Syria, also live on the Turkish border.  Indeed, just ignore the fact that the West and its co-sponsors have turned Syria already into an anarchist hell-hole.  It must be Assad, and if you say otherwise, you are a terrorist-loving puppy-killer!

Russia has already warned of this:

Russia urged Tuesday the West not to "search for pretexts" in order to conduct direct operations in Syria while also calling on Damascus and Ankara to exercise restraint along their flashpoint border.

“In our contacts with partners in NATO and in the region, we are calling on them not to seek pretexts for carrying out a military scenario or to introduce initiatives such as humanitarian corridors or buffer zones,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told reporters in Moscow on Tuesday.

That's a very clear Russian "no-way bitchez" to another creeping UN-SC rubber-stamped and sponsored incremental-attack approach which the US and NATO used in order to disarm, starve and destroy, for 13 years, before finally invading and occupying.

In other news, Adolph Hitler has expressed his "extreme concern" over Polish military aggression, terroristic provocations and the threatened invasion of the peace-loving peoples of Germany by the revanchist rogue Polish regime.
