    THE BOSTON MASSACRE, THE SPOT, THE GULF OF TONKIN, WMD'S & ALL THAT JAZZ

    In 1914 the gift by Germany to Turkey of two battleships was the final consideration that brought Turkey into the war on the side of the Central Powers
    and it was the defeat of the Central Powers that was the final determinant in Turkey's lost of her empire.

    Today, with Iraq destabilized, and the attempted destabilization of Syria by the West and the GCC now well underway,
    Turkey has been bought again,
    this time by the West (think NATO-the EU and the US)
    and by means of the promises of the West
    that Turkey will become the hub
    for the transfer of CA. ME and Gulf oil and gas to the West.

    SHOCKLEY

    SA and Qatar announced that since UN does not support open aggression against Syria, UN can be ignored and aggression can start by "Arab countries".

    Then, after a pep-talk mrs Clinton gave Erdogan, Assad suddenly bombed Turkish territory. Just to give Erdogan an excuse to seek parliamentary permission to go after Syria officially.

    And since Iran reaffirmed its obligations towards Syria, the chances are Iran will step in in defence of Syria against Turkey.

    Now, Turkey is NATO member. And once Assad will retaliate and Iran will come to Syria's assistance, it can be looked upon as "...an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence recognised by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force,..".

    BINGO! No UN resolution will be needed for NATO heavy-weights to roll across Syria AND to attack Iran!

    Look at how Syria neighbors are drawn into its war
    Nov 12,`12 - Syria's neighbors are increasingly being drawn into the country's civil war in a variety of ways, whether militarily or due to an exodus of Syrians fleeing the fighting at home. The spillover has raised concerns that the nearly 20-month-long conflict between Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime and rebels trying to topple him could endanger the entire Middle East.
