Last Friday saw a Turkish combat jet downed in the Mediterranean Sea by Syrian antiaircraft batteries. Syria insists that Turkey’s F-4 Phantom was shot down inside Syrian airspace.
It appears to be a Neo-Ottoman baiting exercise by NATO, and for all intents and purposes, it has worked – so far.
Regardless of the facts surrounding this event, the western media machine and political operators will seek to quickly leverage this event in their efforts to move their inevitable Syrian bombardment project forward.
To date, NATO’s role for Turkey has been to remain in the shadows, hosting the Syrian National Council, coordinating arms shipments in Syria for foreign fighters, and giving refuge to al-Qaeda rebels across Turkey’s border with Syria. But this latest jet incident is likely to change all that.
As was predicted within hours of the initial event last week, Infowars.com – whose analysis was once again days ahead of the mainstream media, accurately predicted that this incident would be used to pull the Turkey further into a central position in NATO’s plan to engage Syria:
If the West and NATO is to enforce a Libya-style ‘no fly-zone’ in Syria, then Turkey would be the tool of choice to run such an operation.
In case you missed it last Friday, here is the interview hours after the incident – another example of how this website sits much further ahead of the geopolitical analytical curve than the whole of the multi billion dollar-capitalized mainstream media:
The corporate mainstream media is of course already positioned to spin this story into a pretext for a war between NATO and the Syria’s Assad government. The world must not forget that this is the very same corporate media who aggressively sold a collection of lies, including a White House concocted fantasy of 500 tons of yellow cake uranium sold to Iraq via Niger, and the same corporate media who attempted to slander Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame as they exposed the Vice Presidential office’s lies of an Iraqi nuclear program – lies which were ultimately successful in getting the United States public to back a full-scale war and permanent military presence in the Middle East.
Ignoring the obvious fact that the last thing Syrians want is to undergo a comprehensive NATO bombing campaign that will most certainly level the country, the mindless and reckless corporate media in the US and its affiliates worldwide, along with state-run war propaganda outlets like the BBC in Britain, have predictably jumped on the Turkish jet incident as an exciting opening gambit in a much anticipated military intervention in Syria. Their choice of wording, identical talking points streamlined perfectly across all media outlets is both cynical in nature and frightening in rhetoric – a reality constructed in order to force the public and political classes into an intellectual cul-de-sac where ‘there is no other alternative’ other than military intervention. The Washington Post naturally leads this media onslaught of consensus reality building, as they normalize war talk:
NATO condemned the downing of a Turkish jet by Syria last week as “completely unacceptable” but gave no indication it would take retaliatory action. The prime minister of Turkey, however, said his country would react militarily to any future violations along its border.
Shooting down the jet Friday was “another example of the Syrian government’s disregard for international norms of peace, security and human life,” NATO said in a statement issued in Brussels. “We stand together with Turkey in the spirit of strong solidarity.”
The language of war should be all too familiar by now.
In past years, the US Secretary of State’s role was often that of chief diplomat and negotiator in sensitive foreign affairs. Hillary Clinton is a prime example of the new breed of foreign cabinet envoy, whose new role is to promote wars and foreign intervention to both the American public and to other foreign NATO ally affiliates. Condoleezza Rice made this role acceptable, cynically deployed by the Bush Administration on an ever politically correct modern American populace, this new role as ‘Secretary of War’ was more effective than ever when played by a woman (and a Democrat), rather than the traditional warmongering alpha male character, and even more so by an African-American woman – another calculated move by the Bush government which was ultimately effective in pushing their illegal war on the American public. Their efforts will always be backed by a mere handful of predictable political war hacks like Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman, along with John Bolton.
Clinton and her British counterpart William Hague, had shamelessly pushed for the destruction of Libya in 2011, and have continued in similar fashion through steering groups like The Friends of Syria, openly coordinating the procurement and shipment of arms via Qatar and Saudi Arabia to their guerrilla army and al-Qaeda cells within Syria. As we can now see clearly, it’s a long-running project of destabilization with the ultimate goal of regime change and balkanization in that country – designed by western intelligence and globalist banking planners.
Clearly in this case, the globalists are in a rush to advance the agenda in Syria, and then move on to neutralize Hezbollah in Lebanon, and finally, the engage Iran – and with this, the first major sparks of a new Third World War. This final move will set the stage for a long-running regional arch of tension which is designed to encompass both Russia and China.
This year’s schedule of world events was most probably visible somewhere at the Bilderberg Meeting in Chantilly, VA. The Syrian agenda was most certainly signed-off by the Bilderbergers and delivered to their Syrian National Council representative, Bassma Kodmani, who was in attendance at this year’s Bilderberg Meeting. Globalist Kodmani is said to be the Head of Foreign Affairs with the SNC, working out of Istanbul, Turkey.
Also in attendance at this year’s Bilderberg Meeting was British agent and steering committee member, Marcus Agius of Barclays, who happens to also serves as an executive consultant to the BBC. No doubt that the BBC’s war propaganda pledge to Bilderberg was also agreed upon during the meeting.
Expect the European and North American domestic terror threat levels in both government and media to also be raised as western involvement increases in Syria – and beyond.
