That's how wars start. One thing leads to another and then full-scale fighting erupts. On October 6, the Tehran Times headlined "NATO preparing the ground for intervention in Syria: Leader's advisor," saying:

Ali Akbar Velayati formerly was Iran's foreign minister. On October 6, he spoke in Tehran and explained what's going on. Turkey is America's lead regional stalking horse. At issue is instigating full-scale war on Syria. 

False flags often start them. The latest border incident is Exhibit A. Syria has gone out of its way to avoid conflict with Turkey and other neighbors. It doesn't matter when it's wrongly blamed for something it didn't do.

According to Velayati:

"Today, NATO is ready to issue a threat against Syria and intends to enter Syria under the pretext that one of the members of this organization".the neighboring country, has been threatened." Washington and other Western countries have this in mind. 

"The West is digging a hole so that Turkey, Syria, and the entire region will become stuck in it and the Islamic Awakening will be overshadowed." 

"Regional countries, including Syria, Turkey, and Iraq, should remain vigilant because the United States and its allies have plots for regional countries."

Israel is very much involved. Its ambitions exceed its capabilities. It seeks regional dominance. It needs America's help and acquiescence. It wants Washington to do its heavy lifting.

Plots are involved "to break up Syria and Afghanistan and create unrest in Pakistan," added Velayati. Balkanization very much is policy. Iraq was targeted. So is Afghanistan and Pakistan. Perhaps Syria also, then Iran.

Washington planned war on Syria, said Velayati. It doesn't matter that most Syrians support Assad. Foreign mercenaries were recruited and imported. Regional countries were "encouraged".to support them."

"We have helped and are helping and will support Syria's territorial integrity and the interests of the people and the government, provided that the reforms continue."

Yevgeny Satanovsky heads the Moscow-based Middle East Institute. Ankara sees Syria as a "Turkish province, annexed by rebellious Arab rulers," he believes.

On October 5, NATO belligerently called the border provocation a threat to the entire alliance. Reasons for such an incendiary comment weren't given. 

On October 6, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned that conflict between Turkey and Syria may escalate. Perhaps he knows something he's not explaining. For sure he's concealing Washington's lead role in what's ongoing and planned.

On October 6, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) headlined "Austrian Newspaper: Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia Responsible for Increasing Casualties in Syria," saying:
