NATO Member Turkey Says Syrian Jet Take Down Is A Hostile Act

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Update 2: CLINTON: SYRIAN DOWNING OF TURKISH JET 'BRAZEN, UNACCEPTABLE. Just as we expected.

Update: All 28 NATO Allies will meet Tuesday following Turkey's request under article 4 of the Washington Treaty

And so the escalation-cum-provocation-cum false flag is complete. There was a time when shooting down a foreign jet over one's territory was considered self-defense. But not when the one doing the defending is perpetual media bogeyman Syria, which "unnamed sources say" kills hundreds, nay thousands of its own people daily, usually in round, soundbitey numbers. Of course, the other side to the story is irrelevant: the Western-led media is never known to fabricate stories that suit the status quo's power and military industrial complex interests. All that is relevant is for the west, aka NATO, aka Hillary Clinton to get an angle to push for provocation. She just got it. As we suspected on Friday, there was much more than met the eye with the Syrian take down of a Turkey F-4 jet. Remember what we said on Friday: "The only question remains whether Syria's act was offensive or defensive. Naturally, its version is one of self-defense. Turkey obviously will claim it was in its right to be wherever the plane may be, and will say this was an act of provocation. Then NATO, read Hillary Clinton, will promptly step in, and make this a case in which Turkey was in its right and that Syria committed an act of aggression. From there, things will just escalate, and can potentially deteriorate to a far more troubling scale, because as we reminded earlier, Syria has recently become a major symbol for NATO vs the Russia-China axis." And sure enough, just out from CNN: "Turkey declares jet shoot-down a 'hostile' act."

More:

Turkey officially considers the shooting down of one of its military fighter jets by Syria to be a hostile act, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said Sunday.

 

Turkey delivered the message in a diplomatic note to the Syrian consulate in Istanbul, calling the incident "a hostile movement," ministry spokesman Selcuk Unal told CNN.

 

Turkish search-and-rescue teams found the wreckage of the fighter jet in the Mediterranean Sea on Sunday, about 1,300 meters (4,260 feet) underwater, he said.

 

They have not reached the wreck yet, he added. There was no word about survivors of the two-man crew.

 

The incident raises the temperature between the two regional powers significantly.

 

Syria gave no warning before shooting down the F-4 Phantom jet which strayed into its territory, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Sunday in an appearance filled with tough talk against Syria.

 

He accused Syria of spreading "disinformation" about the incident.

 

"They have created the impression that Syria felt like it was an act of aggression and they shot it down. ... from our perspective that's not the case," Davutoglu told reporters.

 

The plane in the Friday incident was unarmed, not sending hostile signals, and identifiable as Turkish, he said.

 

"You have to first send a caution, a warning," he said in the first detailed Turkish statement on the international incident. "If the warning doesn't work, you scramble your planes, you send a stronger signal, you force the plane to land. There wasn't enough time to do any of that in the time that our plane was in Syrian airspace."

 

"We have to question how it is that an unarmed, solo flight got this response from the Syrians," he said.

 

He said the fighter jet was in international airspace when it was fired upon.

 

It had strayed into Syrian territory in a "short, unintentional violation," but was notified by the Turkish side that it had crossed the line, and returned to international airspace, Davutoglu said.

Next steps:

1. NATO issues formal complaint, with open-ended demands.

2. Russia, then China, respond in kind.

3. Geopolitical risk goes offerless.

I do not disagree with you Falak.  My comment was pointing out the hypocrisy of "border controls" and mainly the west and NATO's crying out that their plane was shot down by a country they are openly fighting against...in their airspace.  As for people from Central America we could learn a lot from them too, I was blown away in Mexico how many families I saw, multi-generational old grandparents, young children playing out for walks or picnics on the beach or parks or just out in the markets buying fresh produce and fish.  Didn't take a lot of imagination for me to see how that could be a good system for living...I'm crazy though.

"Negroes built the Southern US states."

lol...wait, you're serious?...negroes were not forced to build anything in the North...is that your position?

All those powdered wig wearing English & Dutch cats up North didn't own slaves? Just as pure as the wind driven snow huh?

Massachusetts was the very first "slave state" BD.

"In the year 1755, a black slave named Mark Codman plotted to kill his abusive master. A God-fearing man, Codman had resolved to use poison, reasoning that if he could kill without shedding blood, it would be no sin. Arsenic in hand, he and two female slaves poisoned the tea and porridge of John Codman repeatedly. The plan worked — but like so many stories of slave rebellion, this one ended in brutal death for the slaves as well. After a trial by jury, Mark Codman was hanged, tarred, and then suspended in a metal gibbet on the main road to town, where his body remained for more than 20 years."

"It sounds like a classic account of Southern slavery. But Codman’s body didn’t hang in Savannah, Ga.; it hung in present-day Somerville, Mass."

http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/ideas/articles/2010/09/26/new_englands_hidden_history/

If you're going to start picking open old scabs be ready to accept the fact you're gonna get some blood on you.

"Early 19th century New Englanders had real motives for forgetting their slave history, or, if they recalled it at all, for characterizing it as a brief period of mild servitude. This was partly a Puritan effort to absolve New England's ancestors of their guilt. The cleansing of history had a racist motive as well, denying blacks -- slave or free -- a legitimate place in New England history. But most importantly, the deliberate creation of a "mythology of a free New England" was a crucial event in the history of sectional conflict in America. The North, and New England in particular, sought to demonize the South through its institution of slavery; they did this in part by burying their own histories as slave-owners and slave-importers. At the same time, behind the potent rhetoric of Daniel Webster and others, they enshrined New England values as the essential ones of the Revolution, and the new nation. In so doing, they characterized Southern interests as purely sectional and selfish. In the rhetorical battle, New England backed the South right out of the American mainstream.

The attempt to force blame for all America's ills onto the South led the Northern leadership to extreme twists of logic. Abolitionist leaders in New England noted the "degraded" condition of the local black communities. Yet the common abolitionist explanation of this had nothing to do with northerners, black or white. Instead, they blamed it on the continuance of slavery in the South. "The toleration of slavery in the South," Garrison editorialized, "is the chief cause of the unfortunate situation of free colored persons in the North."[1]

"This argument, embraced almost universally by New England abolitionists, made good sense as part of a strategy to heap blame for everything wrong with American society on southern slavery, but it also had the advantage, to northern ears, of conveniently shifting accountability for a locally specific situation away from the indigenous institution from which it had evolved."[2]

I get sick and tired of these US government schooled, spoon fed revisionist history buffs that pass off fiction for fact.

The truth is, without slave labor, there would be no "old money" in the North for them to play around with...and continually whine that someone else is not doing their fair share to put food in their faces...worthless fat fucks that they are.

I speak not of the common man here, they are just like me. But the "old money" class...the DeWolf's etc.

Without slavery (negroes) the docks of Manhatten back then would have had weeds growing through them and the shipbuilders of Rhode Island would have been dirt farmers.

And Boston, I always return to Boston...Peter Faneuil (endower of Faneuil Hall in downtown Boston) owned a slave plantation on what is now Haiti. The building was financed and built on the blood and labor of others...and it still stands.

The day Blunderdog (or any other self serving yankee mutt) deigns to stand before it and says...Boston, tear down this hall...lol...is the day I will know the entire truth has been told.

Yes, you are so right, they came from a country called KHAZARIA, which occupied the land locked between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea which is now predominantly occupied by Georgia.  The reason the Rottenschilds claim to be Jewish is that the Khazars under the instruction of the King, converted to the Jewish faith in 740 A.D., but of course that did not include converting their Asiatic Mongolian genes to the genes of the Jewish people.

You will find that approximately 90% of people in the world today who call themselves Jews are actually KHAZARS, or as they like to be known, ASHKENAZI Jews.  These people knowingly lie to the world with their claims that the land of Israel is theirs by birthright, when in actual fact their real homeland is over 800 miles away in Georgia. So, next time you hear an Israeli Prime Minister bleating about the so-called persecution of the Jews, consider this, EVERY Prime Minister of Israel has been an Ashkenazi Jew.  Therefore when all these Prime Ministers have curried favour with the West for their re-establishment of a Jewish homeland, they have knowingly and deliberately lied to you, as they were never from that region, and they well know it, because it is they who call themselves Ashkenazi Jews. The Book of Revelation, Chapter 2, Verse 9, states the following which would appear to be about these Ashkenazi Jews: "I know thy works, and tribulation and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." However, these are not the only bloodlines to worry about.  You are probably aware of the centuries old practice undertaken by many Ashkenazi Jews whereby they would change their name, in order for them to appear part of the dominant race of the country in which they lived, so as they could obtain influential positions in that country, which they would then exploit to serve their real masters elsewhere.  There is plenty of evidence to prove the Rottenschilds continue that deceptive tradition. as written in "The History of the House of Rottenschild" by Andrew Hitchcock at http://bit.ly/MhkwoV

As you will see in the timeline, the  Rottenschilds have obtained this position through lies, manipulation and murder.  Their bloodline also extends into the Royal Families of Europe, and the following family names:  ASTOR; BUNDY; COLLINS; DUPONT; FREEMAN; KENNEDY; MORGAN; OPPENHEIMER; ROCK3FELL3R; SASSOON; SCHIFF; TAFT; and VAN DUYN.

Reading above one will realize that the Rock3fell3r family are Rottenschilds descendants through a FEMALE bloodline!!!

And how this family intermarried with it's first and second cousins to preserve the family fortune (of the 18 marriages by Mayer Amschel  Rottenschild's grandchildren, 16 were between first cousins - a practice known today as inbreeding).

Soleiman the magnificent had a harem of 2000 and one true love; lots of sucks for his forty six year reign. He did get his kicks when Sinan built him his mosques to shame the christian churches into architectural oblivion. And when the king of france held in captivity begged him for help; he took Budapest to insult their common enemy Charles of HApsburg, along with captured Belgrade and then knocked on Vienna; it spawned the croissant tradition so it had its silver lining. How may sucks would a muslim endure to be called ruler of splendour and master of the Mediterranean?

Actually, I think that was predictable.  The Co-Dominion of the US and the USSR was much more stable that this monarchy of the US alone.

It was a great scam.  Two countries who never fought each other divide the world in two, and tell everybody that they are the most bitter of enemies, and you have to choose one side or the other.  Then build weapons that scare the living shit out of everybody on the planet.

But then the Russians dropped their side of it, the drunken bastards.

The West could always “invest,” falak pema?  …so it isn’t free. By investing in those factories in "their home towns" – which we already have done - we transfer the job opportunities for our citizens to other countries. And for the exploding unemployment among young men who are U.S. citizens, particularly for a large percentage of young blacks, this “free” welfare-subsidized labor is pretty costly.

IOW, the reason it isn’t yet free is we haven’t yet put in enough money.

In short, illegal immigration can hardly be classified as bringing “free” anything;  it brings crime, increased welfare costs, adverse cultural changes, massive increases in school/road/housing/utility/healthcare and other financial taxpayer burdens –all for the benefit of the global corporatists.

Yuri Orlov: Of all the weapons in the vast soviet arsenal, nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947. More commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the world's most popular assault rifle. A weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple 9 pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood. It doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It'll shoot whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy, even a child can use it; and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists.

On top of that I'll have you know the NATO way of war doesn't directly kill many people, with the high precision weapons and panty-waist rules of engagement.    The main killer is the locals' reaction to the NATO way of war.   Guerilla.   IEDs.   Tribal warfare.   Market bombings.  Ethnic cleansings etc.

Christians have been leaving Lebanon, Iraq, syria and probably Egypt too to escape religious prosecution, tough being a minority surrounded by religious zealots. The Jews got out now it's time for the Christians.

 

Wonder if US offers refugee status to these Christians the way we did for semi jewish USSR refugees
