He referred to the alleged Syrian mortar attack. Five Turkish nationals were killed. What he omitted says more than he revealed. Early reports suggested perhaps a stray Syrian mortar accidentally struck Turkish territory.
On October 6, Reuters and other news services reported more mortars from Syrian territory landing in Turkish territory. For four consecutive days, Turkish artillery shelled in response.
Erdogan is Washington's lead regional belligerent. Smell a rat about what's going on because there is one.
On October 6, the Syrian National News Agency (SANA) headlined "Yurt Newspaper: Erdogan's Government Handed over the Mortars to Armed (Free Syrian Army) Groups in Syria which Shelled Akcakale Town."
Yurt is a Turkish newspaper. Contributor Ali Sirmen reported what's going on. He said Erdogan is acting on Washington's behalf. He's complicit in war crimes.
"The Newspaper also revealed that the bomber which was used to launch the mortar on the Turkish Akcakale town is only used by NATO."
Editor-in Chief Merdan Yanardag explained more. He claimed he had information from a reliable source. He said "Turkey was the side which sent the mortars to the members of the so-called" Free Syrian Army.
This information "affirms that the Government of Erdogan's wrong policy was behind the falling of the mortar in the town that claimed the lives of 5 Turks."
Hamsayeh.Net (Iran & International News Online) reported the same story. On October 6, it also headlined "Turkey Attempts to Trigger a NATO-led War on Syria, saying:
Turkey is one of 28 NATO countries. It's very much part of Washington's imperial wars. In 2011, it helped wage war on Libya. It's doing it now on Syria.
Even The New York Times admitted that it's unknown who's responsible for mortars landing in Turkey. Ankara's knee-jerk response was scripted in Washington. False flag planning originated there.
Obama officials orchestrated the whole show. Ousting Assad was planned years ago. Only its timing remained to be determined. It arrived and continues daily. Turkey's false flag suggests full-scale intervention perhaps looms.
Whether it precedes or follows US elections doesn't matter. It's likely coming. Perhaps Libya 2.0 is planned. NATO already is involved. Lead belligerents include America, Britain, France, and Turkey.
On October 6, Press TV headlined "Syrian army kills dozens of insurgents including four Turks," saying:
Syria reported four Turkish nationals were killed in Aleppo. It's not clear whether or not they were combatants. Perhaps more information will clarify.
