    Thirteen French officers 'captured by Syrian Army'

    Thirteen French officers have been captured by Syrian forces according to the Lebanon-based Daily Star newspaper, the first mainstream media outlet to report on rumours of Western troops on the ground.

    8:07AM GMT 05 Mar 2012

    The French foreign ministry dismissed the report, however, telling the Daily Telegraph that not a single French soldier is on Syrian soil.

    But the defence ministry was less categorical, saying it neither confirmed nor denied the claim.

    40 Turkish intelligence agents captured in Syria
    Sunday, February 19, 2012

    Western officials fear that Iranian military presence along with Russian aid could turn Syria into a center of international friction much worse than the struggle inside Syria. They fear that the control over actions in Syria will be taken over by a Russian-Iranian "partnership" which would exclude the European Union and Turkey and that U.S. involvement could be too late and inefficient.

    Turkey fears this development after a diplomatic crisis erupted with Syria when more than 40 Turkish intelligence officers were captured by the Syrian army. Over the past week, Turkey has been conducting intensive negotiations with Syria in order to secure their freedom, and Syria insists that their release will be conditioned on the extradition of Syrian officers and soldiers that defected and are currently in Turkey.

    This may tell you why Strauss Kahn (former president of IMF) was in trouble. His party leads over Sarcozy in coming president election. Sarcozy supports US' war in Mid-east. That's why Kahn is tarnished. A tactic to help Sarcozy to stay in his president seat.

    U.S. secretly backed Syrian opposition: report
    WASHINGTON | Mon Apr 18, 2011 10:54am EDT

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The State Department has secretly funded Syrian opposition groups, according to diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks, The Washington Post reported on Monday.

    The cables show that the State Department has funneled as much as $6 million since 2006 to a group of Syrian exiles to operate a London-based satellite channel, Barada TV, and finance activities inside Syria, the Post said.

    £500,000 isn't that much.

    Um.....what?

    So being involved in three separate cases of alleged rape and prostitution sex rings is..."a tactic".

    Jesus wept.

    Do you think he is now becomes a sex violator or that's a behave he used to be? Why he didn't have problem until last year? It started from when Sarcozy became important for US' Iran war plan. As early as last May when he was dragged from a plane, I have commented:
