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.

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.

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.

Look, this is already in the fucking admittedly open and talked about script for Syria!  Its not a false flag!! A fucking false flag needs to at least appear to be unexpected!  HC and BO have both talked about creating a safe zone for rebels and refugees in the Northern part of the Country, ala Liyba style!  Once you make that claim, then you justify air power to protect it (no fly zones), then you can move resources in and train people in the open and set up commerce, etc!!

We did it in Iraq, we did it in Libya, we do it all over the fucking place really, with these drones in the air now! Syria is next, and today will justify the move! It doesnt fucking matter who is behind it, its what NATO wants and there going to get it! This is also part of the bigger picture of the attack on Iran, if Syria is handcuffed and fighting for its life, they wont be playing around in Israel, will they????

Humans seem to follow a path until they can go no further, that is the kind of animals we are, somone mentioned the next step in evolution yesterday, and suggested it would be in all our best intrests to take that next step and govern the World rationally, rational people would attempt this, why can we be rational in small groups, yet express unquestioned irationality as members of the mass mind?

Charts and graphs abound detailing our past economic life, the booms and busts are shown for all to see, if they will.

The cause of all the bust times invariably is laid in the lap of " faulty Economic Ideology",  the air is alive with "Experts" who have the solution to reverse this losing streak and no recognition is given to the much enjoyed  Boom also caused by this same "faulty ideology", however Economic Ideology, like Football coaches with a string of losses, may be subjected to the sidelines as the fans demand the return of those winning days of yesteryear.

Von Meise's economic ideology is much admired in unofficial circles, and who knows, may someday have a chance to prove it's mettle in the great arena where ideas, metaphoricly, fight for recognition.

My Thesis is: A glance back through a thousand years shows periods of peace and prosperity, interspersed, with periods of abject insanity.

The Elites have been severely criticised, in unofficial forums, and it is true; The Ethos is expressed by the words and actions of the elites, yet we must wonder!,,Why would the ruling Ethos create a senario which can only lead to it's own demise?

There can have been no greater myth in history than the one which promises safe passage ot the .0001 through the chaos which Nuclear War will unleash! yet they must believe it, look at what is happening.

These people are not necessarily `Bad or Evil` although some surely are, but they are influential carriers of the madness that is the signature of the age.

There was another, famous, period when all the folks were insane, yet did not recognize it in thenselves, the time of the Witch hunts, during this time the staple, Rye, was infected with Ergot which mimics LSD, so everyone was irrational and did irrational things.

Could there be something in the plastic bottles, or else where that is driving us all insane and as yet we not become conscious of it? We had better start looking for it, if we want to survive!

You know - the fuckers wrote white papers, you know.  But you've been trained to reject anything that seems batshit crazy - unless is pertains to Mooooslims...  then you're willing to go to war with Iran because it refuses to stop doing what it's already not doing...

Oh dear me, NATO (using Turkey) getting heavy on Russia via Syria, nasty, very f*cking nasty.

NATO used to be an alliance against Soviet Communist agression, it is now a New World Order nazi storm trooper organization that does killings for it's Israeli and US masters. Who would have thought Europe would become the running dogs of Israel and it's puppet state the USA?

Akcakala, the border village, actually straddles the border and is comprised of both Turkish and Syrian neighborhoods, and that the Syrian government apologized for what it said was a mistake.


So a mortar shell hits a different part of the same town and Turkey wants a war with Iran to get rid of Israel........Erdogan is on a roll as Fuhrer.....he says he is the New Ataturk

I'm guessing that, so far, the Turks may simply be using the mortar attack as an excuse to provide overt artillery & other ground support to a new FSA offensive -- so it might end once the outcome of this offensive becomes obvious.
