The News Media last Thursday were full of reports on Syria's allegedly unprovoked mortar attack on Turkish territory which killed five civilians, including three children.Many of the more excitable foreign correspondents were predicting this could be the moment when the West is forced to intervene in the Syria's bloody civil war. At least the media have managed to move on from presenting the conflict as a one sided contest in which the tyrant Assad is slaughtering dissidents.
Whatever origin of the conflict, dissatisfaction with life under Assad, political protest against rising prices and falling living standards or a desire to live under Sharia law in an Islamic theocracy, the solution now does not lie in Syria or Turkey. China and Russia have lined up behind Assad, Europe and the US want him out.
I don't know what the big strategic picture is here, possibly that the world is reforming into three superstates run by oligarchic collectivist regimes as described in George Orwell's 1984, but I am 90% certain that there is a bigger but so far invisible agenda in operation and Syria and Turkey are just cold-war style proxies in the greater conflict that the main power blocs are reluctant to contest head to head.
Most people in the west are sick to death of hearing how we MUST sort out Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iran etc. etc. etc. Every couple of months there's some new middle eastern crisis or African humanitarian disaster that we poor taxpayers are supposed to stump up the money to sort out, no matter how much it costs while our soldiers, sailors and airmen lay down their lives in another futile contract that will resolve nothing.
For most of this year the West has agonised over how to halt the bloodshed in Syria without actually managing to formulate a convincing strategy for ending the violence. Partly this is due to the intervention of the Russians and Chinese who, with support from Iran, have blocked repeated attempts at the U.N. Security Council to agree a resolution that would actually have an impact on the conflict. At the moment Russian and Iranian ships are stationed in the Mediterranean protecting the sea lanes to Syrian ports.
The other factor that has weighed heavily on the deliberations of Western policymakers concerns the ambitions of those seeking to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Given what's happened in Egypt and Libya after the West enthusiastally backed the overthrow of those countries' long-standing dictators, after ill â€“ considered interventions by politically motivated western leaders there is little appetite among the diplomatic corps or senior military personnel in Washington, London or Paris to see the emergence of another Islamist government emerge on the shores of the eastern Mediterranean.
Many voices are saying the deteriorating situation on the Turko-Syrian border could change all that. Last night an emergency meeting of Nato was convened to discuss the crisis, and resulted in the alliance condemning Syria's "flagrant violations of international law."
No hard evidence has been orffered that the Syrian government was behind the attack, in fact the notion that Syrian government-controlled forced launched cross border attacks is ludicrous.
Cui Bono. Who would gain from such attacks? The Western armament industry should NATO instigate some sort of attack on Syria perhaps, but the Islamists behind the civil war in Syria are already being supplied with western arms through Turkey and Iraq. The rebels themselves, fighting fanatically but making little progress while Assad retains the backing of Russia, are desperate for the west to intervene with air attacks So, in all likelihood these attacks originate from the 'rebels', not the government. A "False flag" operation then is high on the list of probabilities but the Syrian rebels are not the only suspect. What if the shelling was instigated by Turkey itself.
The Kurds are a problem for Turkey and have long campaigned for an autonomous region in Syria. In 2010 a Kurdish attack on Turkey with killed many civilians was proved to have been the work of Tuirkish covert operations squads and almost provided Turkey with an excuse to launch a fill scale invasion of Kurdish territory.
Also, Turkey is almost 100% Sunni, with no love for Syria's Alawite/Shi'ite ruling minority under Assad, so Turkey can kill two birds with one stone by using the rebels to foment the toppling of Assad, AND putting an end to Kurdish aspirations.
The West is right to be sceptical about Assad, he has a track record as an unmitigated bastard, but we should be acting on unsubstantiated Turkish claims of Syrian aggression. It would suit the current Turkish regime to get rid of Assad and see the western powers install in Syria a Sunni-dominated government hostile to the Kurds.
But given Turkey's status as a valued member of Nato, the alliance would not be able to remain on the sidelines for long if the border skirmishes escalated into all-out war. So what might the agenda be and is the scenario now playing out part of a long term plan?
Here's all the proof you need this has been planned since well before 2007, straight from the Horse's mouth.
General Wesley Clark, former head of Nato telling us they plan to take down 7 countries in five years.
There's criminal conspiracy right there and for the benefit of those innocents who believe the government is their best friend and there are no conspiracies, only tin foil hat wearers I have linked the full search results so numerous sources are available.
Our political elites are murderers and criminals need arresting and putting on trial, these power crazy control freaks are a threat to us all.
Has Everybody Forgotten Obama's War
The American military machine has just chalked up the grim statistic of its 2,000th fatality since America troops first surged into Afganistan to defeat "insurgents" whose families had lived in that country for many generations. The invasion was justifed in the aftermath of September 11 by the myth that Afghanistan was a ...
Ignore The warmongering Left's Calls For Intervention In Syria
Morons to the right of me, idiots to the left. What are us libertarians to do as we find ourselves in our customary position, clinging to a raft of common sense as we try to navigate a course through a sea of insanity. My stance on the trouble spots of the middle east has always been the same, firmly non interventionist and I am not shifting as the propaganda ...

UN Panel Says Redesign The World Economy For Sustainability
Politicians can phrase their press communiques in fine words and soaring rhetoric but in the end they cannot disguise the fact that their latest initiatives on saving civilizartion are just another thinly disguised move towards global government, a global economy and culture the suppression of the individual and a New World Order.
